In the digital era, businesses in every industry are becoming technology companies. New business models such as
“product as a service” (in which traditional manufacturers and distributors are driving new revenue streams by
integrating software-based services into their offerings) and new operational models, such as collaboration, social
business, and mobile platforms, mean that nearly every company is deriving at least part of its revenue from cloudbased
So, why are so many of these new cloud solution providers building their businesses on shaky foundations? The
truth is, when your business is based in the cloud, you need more than on-demand leased compute and storage
capacity. You need a cloud that is enterprise-grade, secure, and resilient. Equally important—and overlooked by
too many cloud solution providers—you need a cloud platform that is able to grow your business into the future,

Over the past few years, improvements in mobile devices, Wi-Fi, and
cloud computing have made mobile point of sale (POS) solutions
e ective and a ordable for businesses of all sizes.
Tablets have emerged as the most popular platform for mobile POS
solutions, and you may have already heard the buzz about them.
There’s a reason for all the hullaballoo. In addition to integrating
payments and making retail transactions more e cient than using
a traditional electronic cash register (ECR), tablet POS solutions can
provide robust management data.

you’re looking to:
• replace an ECR or want to have a mobile POS in place on opening day
• unlock new pro t-making and cost-saving opportunities
• expand your business
• keep pace with ever-changing customer expectations
Figuring out which tablet POS solution is the best for your business

For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.

Technology enables business transformation To thrive in today’s idea economy, small and midsize companies like yours are using technology to transform their business. Like your peers, you know that mobile applications, cloud-based solutions, and advanced analytics can help you increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow your business.

In order to take advantage of these modern applications, many companies have found that they need to close the gap between what their business demands and what their IT systems can deliver.
Modern organizations are expanding mobility initiatives across virtually every business function. According to Cisco’s 2015 Mobility Landscape Survey, 72 percent of business leaders believe mobility is a strategic imperative for their organization’s success. In fact, in many businesses today, line-of-business (LoB) leaders are increasingly funding and making decisions about mobile applications and solutions.

The Android platform has quickly established itself as a dominant mobile OS for consumers. However, enterprise IT has been slower to adopt Android broadly due to lack of Enterprise Mobility Management capabilities in Android and fragmentation. But the recent release of Android Lollipop reduces fragmentation and when combined with MobileIron enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, gives IT the tools needed to easily manage and secure apps and content on all types of Android devices. This will accelerate adoption of Android devices within the enterprise.
Enabling business value through the Mobile Web requires new thinking as well as a shift in technology.
