Data Collection Technologies: Things to Consider When Choosing Your Next Operating System

choosing-os-coverDid you know that all support for the Windows® Embedded Handheld 6.5 (WEH 6.5) operating system (OS) will stop by 2020 with no clear-cut migration path in sight? Or that the next versions, WEH 8.1 and Windows 10, will not be compatible with the handheld devices that your business and millions of others already use?

Although this may prove stressful, the good news is that this will provide you with the opportunity to reassess your mobility requirements and strategies, evaluate the stronger choices which are now available, and arrive on a new operating system that will meet your long-term vision far better than the old option ever could.

Because it is best to be as informed as possible as you begin the journey towards selecting a new operating system, we’d like to share Honeywell’s white paper, Strategic Insights into Selecting the Operating System that Best Meets Your Long-Term Business Vision.

Read the paper to learn:

  • The advantages and disadvantages of the different systems (Android, iOS, and future Windows platforms),
  • The differences between the systems, including support for data collection technologies, devices, and the available development and management tools,
  • The reasons HTML5 can help with some OS compatibility problems,
  • How your business can decide what criteria is the most important when making your decision,
  • And more.
