ESG Brief: Why Employees Should Use Fewer Devices in 2020

Abstract:

Having to support an increasing number of devices per employee is leading to a situation that is not sustainable for businesses and IT organizations. The high number of devices that average employees are bringing into the workplace for business purposes strains existing IT and security strategies, which are not designed to handle this level of complexity. When employees are enabled to complete more of their business tasks with a single device, they benefit from a consistent experience across all workflows and communication channels.
