Mobile is huge. How huge? We could tell you here, but reading this infographic might be a little more fun for you.

Evolution of the Mobile Workplace

Few would argue that mobile is one of the most important evolutions to hit the enterprise in recent history. What big changes came before it though?


Managing Mobile Misbehavior

So, you’ve decided to go mobile:

You’ve procured the right devices (or have finally allowed for BYOD), created a custom app that amps up productivity and gotten your staff juiced about their newfound freedom and mobility. In essence, you’ve built your new mobile stack. But now Suzy in Accounting is playing Angry Birds all day, the sales team in the field keeps running up 411 directory assistance charges, and IT’s video data costs are out of control.

Rise of the Machines

Did you know that by 2020, M2M is projected to be a $1 trillion industry? Soon machine-to-machine communication over the wireless network will be impacting virtual every aspect of our personal and professional lives. While the possibilities are immense and unpredictable, you’re already quite familiar with the technology. The simple SIM card that sits in your phone will soon be the soul of every machine with which you interact. We should probably figure out how to plan for the explosion, right?

The Emerging Mobility Stack

Between the popularity and computing power of smartphones today and the surge of cloud services, the new reality is that employees expect to have access to all their data at any time, in any place, and on any device they choose. And that has big consequences for IT.

Proactive Mobile Strategy Starts with Visibility

Today, one in two US mobile phone owners is carrying a smartphone – a number that’s grown exponentially, and is contrary to all data points concerning spending and economic confidence. The adoption of mobile technology in businesses is keeping pace driven both by demand for the support of workers’ devices and the increasing business value of the applications and workflows available on mobile today. Still, a solidly reactive approach to mobile has hindered most companies to date. To better understand the state of managing mobile inside of organizations today, we reviewed market data and conducted live interviews with mobile managers.

How Mobility is Reinventing Sales, Marketing and HR

The rapid expansion of smartphones and tablets in the modern workplace has raised several key questions for executives. How will mobility affect each business unit? What’s the business case for deploying hundreds or thousands of new devices to employees? Which department has the most to gain? Who should be funded first? Which features are most essential to employees?

Lighting the Path to Successful BYOD Programs

Not long ago, the IT department was the sole purveyor of workplace technology. Managers decided what hardware to purchase, and loaded it up with a standard suite of software. Workers were happy to have access to tools and gadgets that far outpaced anything they had at home, and network administrators were content to oversee a simple and level technological playing field. But as enterprise mobility has become more and more nuanced– fueled in large part by the rise of the smartphone and the current “bring-your-own-device” trend– this placid state of operation has grown infinitely more complex, making it imperative for organizations to have a well-thought out mobile program in place.

Controlling the Cost of Mobile Progress

The benefits of a mobile workforce are overwhelming. Propelled by a white-hot consumer market, wireless devices are becoming the weapon of choice for almost all major organizations. By diligently keeping up with industry developments and carefully watching over emerging employee demands and usage habits, managers can ensure that their firm is ultimately harnessing the benefits of a mobilized workforce in the most cost-efficient manner possible.

Five Practical Tips for Getting Corporate Mobility Plans in Order

Few technology trends have impacted the office as quickly or pervasively 
as the influx of smartphones and tablets over the past two years. As these mobile devices have evolved to become a professional necessity, employees have changed where they work, when they work and how they work. To bring order to this chaos and ensure mobility remains an organizational asset, management needs to develop a comprehensive plan of action, communicate it across all departments and support its success with effective policy enforcement. To make this task more approachable, companies should direct their initial focus on the five areas covered in this whitepaper.
