In today’s highly competitive business environment, top companies will be the ones that have developed innovative ways to create stellar communications experiences that keep the end users engaged—employees and customers alike.
Video and Web conferencing have become well-established tools to drive rich internal as well as external communications.

The business case for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) has never been stronger than it is in 2018. IT leaders are under the gun to modernize their infrastructures to accommodate hybrid cloud environments, unrestrained data growth, the Internet of Things (IoT), the consumerization of IT and a wide range of company-specific challenges.
Consumer-focused technologies that are deployed by employees can provide tremendous value to any business and can provide IT organizations with more functionality than they can afford or are willing to deploy. However, consumer technologies must be appropriately managed in order to satisfy corporate security, compliance and other requirements. This means integrating consumer technologies into the existing IT fabric in order to achieve the greatest possible synergies between consumer-focused and IT-deployed technologies.

Gone is the day of the corporate-issued BlackBerry device. With its finely ingrained policies, BlackBerry was once the go-to mobile device for security-savvy enterprises. Research from IDC shows that iPhone and Android now hold over 80% of market share, with Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry completing for the third spot. The rising trend of mobility consumerization has reached a point where it is increasingly difficult for IT organizations to settle on a standard mobile device. This whitepaper will help you identify each device platform’s security features—and choose the right platform for your business.
Smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices have become embedded in enterprise processes, thanks to the consumerization of IT and a new generation of workers raised

Enterprise conferencing and collaboration technologies today stand at an exciting crossroads. Solutions that were once considered consumer technologies are moving into the enterprise. Never has this trend been more pronounced than now, as consumerization of IT and mobile device proliferation increasingly break down the walls between business and consumer use. As a result, enterprise solutions must become increasingly simpler to deploy and more intuitive to use. At the same time they must deliver a secure and seamless communications experience. As the worlds of consumer and business communications blend, walking the line between the two has become top of mind for users and IT decision makers alike. Businesses must capitalize on these tectonic shifts in user preferences by deploying agile communications that today’s mobile users need in order to collaborate effectively wherever they are.

Enterprise content management (ECM) represents both a strategy to deal with all types of unstructured content and a set of software products for managing the entire content life cycle. However, new content types and disruptive forces - such as the consumerization of IT - continue to multiply the number of repositories and applications that enterprises must deal with.
The “consumerization” of healthcare and sweeping policy changes will require that healthcare providers become more competitive or risk being left behind. Gaining the competitive edge means finding scalable efficiencies, leveraging the wealth of available patient data for improved care, and figuring out how to meet (or sometimes treat) patients where they already are—whether that happens to be at work, at the mall, or on the street.
While Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT) technologies promise to create massive efficiencies and a transformed patient experience, traditional wired connectivity solutions are often costly, difficult to deploy, and don’t offer the flexibility required for effective M2M and IoHT deployments.
A Google Trends search for “BYOD” reveals it is a fairly new term, appearing in news publications for the first time in late 2011. BYOD is one part of a much larger, deeper-rooted trend: The consumerization of IT, which can be traced back to the early 2000s. Around that time, most everyone had a personal computer, which enabled them to work from home after hours – and to realize the benefits of using the devices that they had carefully chosen and were comfortable using, rather than the corporate devices their IT departments had issued them.
BYOD and the consumerization of IT continued to grow as devices became cheaper and more connected. Where IT leaders were once solely concerned with reining in all the unapproved devices accessing the corporate network, a recent Intel and readwrite report that shows 49 percent of U.S. IT managers “strongly agree that BYOD improves worker productivity.” The next era of BYOD has arrived, and IT departments are thinking about it as a strategic value-ad
