As 2020 draws near, the talk of OS migration will only become more urgent. Without OS updates and security patches, companies currently relying on Windows Mobile may face the risk of frequent crashes and breeches. Because careful strategy is key to a successful migration, Avalon Integration advises starting now. The first step is selecting a new OS. It comes to no surprise that we stand with Zebra Technologies in recommending Android as the wisest choice.
Currently powering over 80% of consumer and enterprise devices, Android provides a flexible ecosystem that allows the integration of future necessary applications, OS updates, and security patches. However, because it also serves consumer-grade devices, companies may still be skeptical, especially when compared to other popular systems such as iOS.
