Surviving the Age of Mobility

Flexible, always-on and unshackled - these are words that have come to define modern mobile workers, a commanding force set to reach 1.87 billion people, or 42.5% of the global workforce, in 2022. Mobile work, in the true definition of the term, is not groundbreaking by any means. Working outside the office on company-issued PCs has been commonplace for years. But due to the rise of mobile operating systems, IT is now facing a new paradigm of mobile work: the use of smartphones and tablets that are multifunctional and more end-user-focused than ever before. As these types of devices continue to proliferate, the gap between workers and their office desks will widen even more, adding new layers of complexity to IT’s role in the enterprise.
