2015 will be the year that wearables take off. Much of the excitement around wearables will be directly tied to the launch of the Apple Watch, but this will also be the year that enterprises recognize the business opportunity of wearables. Here are some calls to action that enterprises should consider in 2015:
1. Consider if and how Apple Watch might supplement your organization’s current mobile offerings;
2. Consider the use of wearable devices to aid internal or customer-facing processes;
3. Be up-front about data collection and conscious of potential privacy concerns; and
4. Recognize that the next two years will see a lot of churn in the wearable space; don’t wait for the space to settle but, instead, charter early wearable pilots with the knowledge that some initial investment might be throwaway.
