IDC PeerScape: Practices for Smart Eyewear Platforms
This IDC study features interviews with several companies (all of which requested to remain anonymous) with backgrounds and expertise in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and field service to get an understanding of how the installment of smart eyewear platforms and deployment of smart eyewear have led to best practices."Deploying smart eyewear is not simply plugging in a device," says Ramon T. Llamas, research manager with IDC's Wearables research team. "It takes a smart eyewear platform and careful and purposeful planning with input from IT, line-of-business managers, and users to determine how the devices will be used and what information is needed. Security, mobile device management (MDM), wireless connectivity, and content management also have significant roles, and we uncovered best practices for each. Taken together, these will help those considering smart eyewear on how to better navigate this new technology and realize their own results."
