LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s latest report on the global workload scheduling software market provides an analysis on the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2016-2020. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
The top four emerging trends driving the global workload scheduling software market according to Technavio ICT research analysts are:
- Rising adoption of workload scheduling software by SMEs
- Increasing need for security solutions for workload scheduling software
- Emergence of analytics capabilities in workload scheduling software
- Increased demand for workload scheduling software for mobile devices
Rising adoption of workload scheduling software by SMEs
Changes in organizational requirements have prompted SMEs to introduce innovations into their existing business models and enterprise infrastructure. Workload scheduling software ensures improved operational efficiency and increased employee productivity. It enables SMEs to streamline their business processes, ensuring the workload scheduling does not bottleneck.
Amrita Choudhury, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for enterprise application research, says, “Since a number of SMEs are shifting toward cloud-based services, it is becoming important for them to use workload scheduling software to ensure proper execution of background jobs.”
Increasing need for security solutions for workload scheduling software
Due to an increase in the penetration of mobile devices, a number of organizations require authentication techniques such as biometric technologies and multi-factor authentication to ensure safe and secure access to applications and software. Technavio analysts expect many organizations to start using multimodal biometrics and multi-factor authentication to ensure authorized access to organizational data.
Biometric identification technology has become an integral part of the security of banks and healthcare organizations. The biometric authentication process will provide better security to organizational data by linking an individual’s face, iris, fingerprints, or voice with his or her credentials. Multi-factor authentication uses two or more different authentication methods. This acts as an additional security layer and stops unauthorized access to a physical location, database, or computing device. Multi-factor authentication solutions incorporate biometrics, PINs, and phone-based authentication solutions, making them one of the most secure authentication systems available in the market.
Emergence of analytics capabilities in workload scheduling software
The focus of workload scheduling software providers is shifting from providing real-time monitoring to providing predictive analytics in their solutions. The built-in predictive analytics provided by the vendors enable enterprises to be more proactive in the execution of workflows, preventing any backlogs. Furthermore, it helps system administrators identify and resolve issues before they make the network and applications vulnerable.
By 2020, Technavio analysts expect major vendors in the market to provide predictive analytics that will enable enterprises to identify potential opportunities and threats, which are difficult to detect with simple monitoring solutions.
“Analytics includes self-learning algorithms that enhance employee productivity. It allows enterprises to manage and monitor servers, networks, and applications with advanced technology, such as anomaly detection and correlation discovery,” says Amrita.
Increased demand for workload scheduling software for mobile devices
With the rising implementation of the bring-your-own-device policy in organizations across the globe, employees have gained access to enterprise applications from their handheld devices. As more and more businesses are moving to mobile platforms, the need for workload scheduling solutions to track dynamic applications in a mobile environment is rising. By 2020, Technavio analysts expect vendors to support workload scheduling using mobile devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets.
