Evolving business needs
According to Forrester Research, mobility is the new normal. Information workers will erase the boundary between enterprise and consumer technologies, and therefore mobility is certainly a defining vector in the evolution of the new business world. 56% of information workers send their first email before getting to the office, and 73% send their last email after leaving the office. 52% of information workers are using 3 or more devices for work.
Business needs are evolving with the new Industry 4.0, from employees working Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 toward a 24/7 blur of work and personal activity; from computers on a local area network (LAN) corporate network toward multiple devices, anytime, anywhere; and from on-premises applications and file hosting toward Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and cloud-based file hosting.
