The Importance of Being Able to Rely on Data
Internet usage network, equipment and applications; all produce data. Trying to understand everything happening around us can easily lead to information overflow. Mobile apps can help harness the information transforming the data into situational awareness. In fact, information collected by the apps is extremely useful in order to better understand what’s going on.
In the Public Safety industry, if we think about police officers, EMS or firefighters, information such as real time monitoring, alerting, signal strength and GPS tracking and mapping are all critical information that must absolutely be known by these mobile workers.
It allows increased observation of fleets, a better understanding of what is happening and therefore additional security for Public Security officers.
But even more, we can also see its importance in other industries such as transportation, by example. Data that tells you where people come from (origin) and where they are going (destination) after visiting or passing through a specific place. Where they are in real time can be extremely helpful.
What About Hospitals?
In the health sector, the importance of being able to analyze and notify when there’s an emergency is essential. Wouldn’t it be great to have a solution that follows a doctor in real time so they know where they are in the hospital when there’s an emergency, or better yet, be able to send them an alert and signal quickly and effectively?
It goes without saying, with technology evolving at a breakneck pace, the days of pagers are definitely over. Now is the time to make room for more advanced technology in order to obtain more precise and faster information.
Data in Businesses
Data is at the core of every business decision made. Directors, managers or human resources are gathering data from online resources to also determine the best people to recruit and confirm details about them while they’re working.
Furthermore, data helps you understand and improve business processes so you can reduce wasted money and time. Every company feels the effects of waste and that’s a fact!
Another factor to consider is the accessibility of its information. The current trend shows that employees are using personal devices to connect to their organizational networks and access work-related systems and potentially sensitive or confidential data. Personal devices can include smartphones, personal computers, tablets, or USB drives. The increasing prevalence of BYOD is expected to have a fundamental impact on IT over the next few years. It’s not a bad thing, right? Having access from any device can be really useful but what about data security?
Of course, this has to be taken into account, as there can be many consequences if the company does not ensure that access to information is combined with increased security.It will therefore be very important to have access to a VPN solution in order to maintain the security of this sensitive data as well as immediate interruption in the event of loss or theft.
The more information we have, the more optimally we can organize ourselves to deliver the best outcomes. That is why data collection is an important part for every organization. It helps to reduce your operating cost, understand your business needs better, improve the productivity of mobile units, measure performance and way much more!
