Do you have robust terminals with Windows operating system or add new handheld think your company? Then this article can address many of your concerns about how it is changing the landscape when choosing an operating system.
What is the current scenario?
From 2020 Microsoft will no longer provide support for your operating system for Windows Mobile and CE, this means, devices that have these operating systems will no longer receive updates and patches that correct system failures. Those with mobile terminals in this situation, should opt for alternative software, rewrite their applications and change their devices before the announced end of support Microsoft.
This transformation brings a revolution of enterprise mobility. Organizations wishing to achieve competitive advantage and to generate long-term strategies should be part of this change, and this involves migrating applications to optimize workflows, productivity and efficiency.
We should note that, in recent years, rugged handheld devices have acquired hardware and software capabilities, and usability features that come increasingly massive use devices that are used. The end of Microsoft support comes from the hand of this evolution of devices commonly used in business. And parallel to this transformation, a giant like Android, which according to estimates Google has around two billion monthly activations of devices, It has developed options that offer more business friendly OS user experiences.
Why should I choose Android for their devices?
Android facilitate their processes and reduce learning time that workers must devote to adapt to a new operating system, as the more familiar it, faster users know the capabilities of the devices used and the smaller the margin of error in the use.
Además de esto, with DNA Movility, Android OS developed for Zebra, You will benefit from:
• Improvements in data capture tools that allow you to read from barcodes to complete forms without problems.
• Optimizations in management capabilities Battery, achieving potentiate the duration of their devices for long hours.
• You should not worry about security breaches through technology Mobility Extension (MX).
• With management tools, will achieve integrate applications and mobile devices quickly and easily.

How can you achieve a successful migration?
1. Assess and determine the objectives of mobility applications your company.
2. Select the operating system that best suits your goals.
3. Choose how to carry forward the migration.
These key steps will help you have a successful migration without wasting time and energy in the process. The first thing is to understand what roles our applications, from this choose the proper operating system based. Keep in mind that it is essential to plan and execute for competitive advantage of technological transformation of your company.
Taking a new device and run an application of "green screen" inherited or Windows Mobile application with fewer features, It will not bring satisfactory results and could also impair the performance of its workers. Otherwise, applications incorporating an intuitive SO, modern and has usability improvements, decrease learning time with technology, increase the efficiency and performance, because your employees will feel familiar with applications from the start.
Types of applications and migration options
1. Terminal emulation (TO)
Such applications TE, best known for their green screen interfaces, They are fully portable applications because they can be run from any device. Although this is a big plus, incorporate these applications into a modern touch screen device would completely miss the possibilities hardware.
Migration options for TE applications
All-Touch Terminal Emulation Wavelink TE features Velocity technology and converts green screens into modern interfaces that take advantage of the touch technology of their devices Zebra. All-Touch requires no configuration, modification of host or coding, and allow you to run your applications in minutes.
2. Web applications
This is the simplest case to migrate. What should be considered for these applications is that in general have the ability to access hardware functionality, for example, the barcode reader for scanning. Thus, they must make adjustments to the visual parameters and functions of the application so they can run smoothly.
Migration Options for Web Applications
3. Native applications
Such applications are developed based on an operating system, therefore they represent major challenges for migration. In this case, the option is to rewrite applications to adapt to the new OS.
Migration Options for native applications
TELECTRONICA offer a migration service native applications so you can go through the process without difficulty or inconvenience. We have professionals with extensive experience that can accompany the migration path to get the best results from your devices.
