There are a growing number of examples of how software and the cloud have the power to be disruptive technologies. Amazon and Alibaba in retail, Square and Apple Pay in finance, Uber and Lyft in transportation, and Netflix and Spotify in media are all examples of recent software-based services that have revolutionized how we do business. This potential for disruption across all vertical industries is driving a requirement for enterprises and their IT organizations to be more agile and responsive to changing business environments.
While the consumer benefits of Apple devices are well known, less attention is paid to their role in an enterprise environment. Itís time to start paying attention. Apple offers a number of features built for business and as the first company approved for mobile deployments by the Apple Consultants Network, Enterprise Mobile has unique insight into these features.
Convenience is absolutely critical to succeeding in e-commerce. Any glitches along the path to purchase potentially result in a lost sale. That's one reason we think Apple Pay's new mobile payment feature that uses a fingerprint is going to be a game changer. Its another step in reducing hurdles to online buying. You see it, you select it, you pay with your finger. What could be more convenient?
Not interested in Apple Pay? Or unable to use it? At the very least, make sure customers that shop on multiple devices are recognized, no matter which device they log into. Giving them access to their stored information will make for a much smoother checkout.
