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.
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.
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.

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.
Driving Change of Property and Casualty – Transform Your Customer Experience
INSURERS ARE UNDERSTANDABLY EAGER to differentiate customer experience by automating mobile workforce management—especially when they can also cut operational costs, reduce carbon footprint, and streamline catastrophe response in the process. But this profound transformation in the daily lives of field claims and other mobile workers must be managed carefully to maximize benefits while minimizing disruption for all stakeholders.

Learn what Forrester has uncovered in their latest report on Enteprise Mobility trends.
During the past two years, Forrester has seen the number of enterprise mobility inquiries increase nearly 55%, jumping to 550-plus inquiries in 2008. In the past year, we have seen a spike in the number of inquiries focused on mobile network architecture, new types of mobile devices, and deploying vertically focused mobile applications that address the needs of workers in certain industries (e.g., retail, transportation, and healthcare).
Thanks to new mobile technologies, work happens everywhere today. It might be responding to email on the morning train or uploading a customer contract during a cross-town cab ride. Your workers need this level of connectivity to compete. At the same time, you likely face unprecedented budgetary challenges.
