The Impact of Mobility on the Enterprise

    Mobility in the Enterprise Will Continue to Evolve

    The way we're headed, mobile devices will soon replace desktops in the enterprise. Eventually, the tablet, smartphone and laptop will all morph into a single device. The device will need to offer enough power and screen real estate to consume content easily but at the same time be small enough to be portable. As capable devices evolve to fit this form factor – along with requisite productivity software and peripherals – they will replace traditional PCs in the enterprise. The PC, as we know it today, will likely disappear in three to five years. We'll still have that PC functionality but a new form factor will emerge, as enterprise mobile applications grow increasingly robust and capable.

Mobility continues to have a profound impact on the enterprise. Smartphones and tablets have quickly become part of the corporate ecosystem. Improvements in wireless and cellular coverage are enabling us to be productive anywhere, anytime. Today's workforce is demanding flexibility to choose to work their own way including choices ranging from which devices they carry to the platform they want to use on their desktop or laptop.

We're seeing industry leaders acknowledge the need for technology flexibility and take action to adapt and move enterprise applications to mobile devices. These trends have had a huge impact in making companies realize the power of mobile and its key role in the new IT enterprise reality. Is your organization taking the right steps to prepare?
