Mobility is significantly changing business process and employee behavior. As such, it is incumbent on IT organizations to respond to user demands to work from any (and many) devices in any place, at any time, providing a secure yet rich consumer-like user experience. The enterprise mobility segment researches what it takes to support today’s mobile employee through both the business and end-user lenses. ESG examines new collaboration and communication solutions, identity and access management, secure workspace delivery models, and mobility management requirements.
The key point in taking a modern workspace approach is that an end-user can embrace the new while still maintaining access to the old. This means that within a workspace, Microsoft Windows and Windows applications are just an app/icon within the workspace.
