Brexit is only the latest excuse for mobility and talent management to be at the top of the CEO agenda. For companies with limited experience in this area, the risks are multiplied. However, there are also great opportunities.
Today, mobility is no longer a trend. It’s the new reality — and it is reshaping the enterprise. Gone are the days of employees tethered to desktop computers, and they’re no longer dependent on an Ethernet or wi-fi connection to work remotely. More and more enterprise employees are conducting daily work transactions on mobile devices. Mobility surged to 1.3 billion workers in 2015, continuing a 33 percent growth trend since 2010. These mobile workers aren’t limiting themselves to a single device, either. In just the last year, the number of devices managed by enterprises grew an incredible 72 percent.
For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.

ENDPOINT DATA. It’s often one of the most forgotten aspects of an enterprise data protection strategy. Yet, content on laptops, desktops and mobile devices is among a company’s most valuable data even while it’s potentially at the greatest risk. According to IDC there will be some 1.3 billion mobile workers by 2015. However, only half of enterprises today are using some type of endpoint backup. That means that the volume of endpoint data that is in jeopardy is nothing short of significant.

Today, technology is all about enabling business. Organizations of many types and sizes are developing, upgrading or replacing mobile applications to reflect changes in the workplace. Across industries, employees are working more while mobile, using multiple devices. When they return to the office, they are capitalizing on more flexible work environments and approaches to work.
Many organizations are facilitating this anytime, anywhere work
with mobility initiatives that provide mobile devices or allow
employees to use their own. They are also modifying workspace
designs, creating mobile workstations and mobile “hot spots” to
enable workers to easily connect to enterprise systems when
they return to the office.
Enabling employees to work better can help organizations
boost productivity and improve customer service. The real
challenge is to continue supporting new ways of working, now
and in the future, without compromising security.
Without document classification in play, it's impossible to know what to protect. The mobile ecosystem makes workers infinitely more productive, which is one reason that it won’t go
away. This white paper explores the question: How can IT govern and protect content in such ad hoc and semi-structured environments? Please download whitepaper to learn more.
The mobile workspace has created problems for IT, including policy enforcement, attack from untrusted wireless networks, and physical data theft. This white paper examines how cloud-based security solutions can protect distributed workers.

Maximizing productivity in challenging work environments is not easy, and that’s why selecting the right mobile computing solution is crucial. It’s not enough to simply hand your workers or technicians any mobile device; if the hardware can’t operate reliably in their typical work environment, they might as well be working with pen and paper.
IT services such as mobile devices, smart applications and cloud-based services are transforming the way we live, work and communicate. Global technology services and businesses are embracing digital transformation, introducing Intelligent Spaces to unleash worker productivity and accelerate the pace of business. The workplace plays a critical role in an organization’s digital transformation. Forward-looking organizations recognize that you can’t build a digital business without building a digital workplace.
Today there’s no such thing as “one size fits all” when it comes to enterprise mobile computing for field services workers. While the business benefits of automation are clear (e.g. decreased downtime, increased customer satisfaction), selecting the right mobile device mix for the job is becoming more complex. This whitepaper examines three challenges organizations face when considering a mobile device deployment for field workers:
1. Integrating new mobile devices with legacy technology
2. Adapting to multi-generational workforces
3. Choosing the right mobile device for the job.
Learn how to tackle these challenges and make technology decisions that improve worker productivity and help manage costs.
Mobile apps are becoming core to almost everything we do by making us more efficient and better connected to the world around us. Those benefits are now making a big impact on business by improving worker efficiency, engaging customers, and building brand loyalty.

Enable, protect, and manage mobile productivity
Protecting email and other corporate data on mobile devices—without bogging down workers—is one of today’s biggest challenges faced by IT pros today. With the massive, global proliferation of mobile devices, it can be a struggle to manage and secure these devices and your data, both on approved enterprise applications and shadow IT.
Download this free e-book to learn how to control the uncontrollable and create a solution that:
• Enables continuous management, so your employees are more productive.
• Offers threat protection, so you can detect abnormal user behavior, suspicious activities, known malicious attacks, and security issues right away.
• Guards against data leakage.
• Provides security after loss or theft of mobile devices.
• Helps protect your Microsoft Office email, files, and apps.
The year 2011 ended with a staggering 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions, especially significant considering that the total world population is around 7.011 billion. Of course, a direct comparison is not fair since many people have multiple subscriptions, but it represents a window into the pervasiveness of these devices and how they are an integral part of people’s lives today. For enterprises, this also represents the impending end to the old computing era and the emergence of the mobile worker.
Enabling mobility in the workplace is a top-of-mind goal for decision-makers within every organization. This necessity is brought about by the consumerization of IT and the requirement to develop policies to manage the “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) trend.
Today’s “connected” generation is comprised of tech-savvy workers whose strengths must be harnessed for competitive advantage. Read how to reach “Gen C” and develop talent management strategies to attract, engage and retain this workforce segment.
Even if you have only 15 mobile workforce employees, you can reduce costs and improve the customer’s experience using optimization software. Today, it’s easy because you don’t even have to provide dedicated mobile devices to your field employees, just an app. But how do you avoid difficult transitions for workers, long implementation times, and solutions that don’t work as you really needed? This paper walks you through the 6 steps to successful decision making.
