Today’s business environment is transforming to provide more flexible work approaches for employees. Supported by an expanding ecosystem of mobile applications and devices, workers increasingly demand access to business applications and expertise anywhere, from any device. In response, organizations are laying the groundwork for an architecture that connects devices, applications, user types, and deployment models to support the BYOD trend and enable a “work your way” experience.

The Challenges of Delivering a Mobile Experience

Many workers today rely on their smartphones as a basic platform for doing business. At the same time, the majority of mobile device purchases in the North America are personal purchases chosen without any regard for available IT support. Companies are challenged to provide an “any device” optimal experience that:

  • Reduces risk by maintaining compliance and security
  • Rapidly rolls out services and applications
  • Delivers a consistent, portable experience while supporting emerging work styles
  • Lowers complexity while maintaining costs

  • Increase the robustness of the network and its security profile
