The huge rise of mobile devices has led to a major shift in the workplace, allowing workers unprecedented levels of flexibility over where and when they work, along with a huge choice in the devices they use to fulfil different tasks, whether a smartphone, tablet, laptop or one of the new crop of smartwatches.
Firms are adapting to this transformation, spurred by the potential increase in productivity and staff satisfaction offered by mobile working.
But this mobile shift brings new challenges for IT managers. Some employees will use their smartphones, tablets and other devices for work whether their company authorises it or not.
This means that companies and IT departments have a much more difficult job to protect corporate data, as mobile has become another way for information to flow in and out of the company network.
As well as the security complications, remote working requires wireless networks to support mobility. Buy-in is also crucial to ensure that staff and the business are best served in this brave new mobile world.
To help you wade through this complex landscape, we’ve put together the Enterprise Mobility Definitive Guide.
Covering everything you need to know on the topic, from the legal right to flexible working, to how to protect mobile data and the best MDM tools and technologies available, this guide is all you need to start managing a mobile workforce at your organisation.
