A look inside the latest World Quality Report* and a conversation with Sogeti's Jean-Pascal Duniau. This report, published by Capgemini, Sogeti, and HP is based on interviews with 1,553 respondents in 25 countries uncovers a number of new developments in the testing / QA market and an increased change of pace. With a heightened focus on mobility and the demand for testing in the cloud gathering pace, this growing demand means that companies are having to re-evaluate their resources and strategies.
More and more businesses are embracing workplace mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies as a method to reduce costs and stimulate productivity. These initiatives give employees, contractors, and business partners the power to remotely contribute, collaborate, and communicate with team members from familiar devices, anywhere around the world. To implement these strategies effectively however, IT teams must provide access to applications, business systems, collaboration platforms, and development environments without sacrificing end-user experiences, hindering their organization’s security posture, or inducing excessive costs. What many are finding is that traditional methods of desktop and application delivery and on-premises Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) often cannot live up to this task, as they introduce new challenges upon implementation.
While we tend to think about mobility largely as a consumer phenomenon, it is also changing how the workforce carries out business. With so much being done beyond traditional office walls, many insurance companies, financial service organizations and even government agencies are adopting mobile devices as productivity tools and developing enterprise apps for these devices. Electronic signature technology is pivotal to enabling mobile transactions beyond just informational apps. Not only in terms of straight-through processing (STP), but also for full compliance, legal enforceability and record retention. With most organizations’ mobile strategies still in the early stages, this article provides a starting point to help you better understand mobile e-signatures for business. It reviews the top 10 capabilities that businesses need in order to properly equip their customer-facing workforce with mobile e-signing.

In many organizations, the IT team ushered in the first generation of primitive mobility, issuing pagers to on-call teams and guardians of key corporate systems. And while today, the vast majority of our pagers have been upgraded to smart phones and intelligent devices, many of them are used for little more than prompting us to log into a desktop system or dial a phone. This paper outlines six strategies for extending mobile devices beyond notification to workflows and robust productivity tools within your IT organization.
Thanks to the rising importance of business mobility, the BYOD trend, and improvements in the underlying technology, the adoption rate of desktop virtualization is faster today than ever before.
But as enterprises move to virtualization as a foundation for end-user computing strategies, more agile, high-performing infrastructures are needed.
Download this white paper to learn why software-defined data centers (SDDC) are an attractive infrastructure option for virtualization. Inside, you’ll gain access to different articles featuring:
Why infrastructure matters in desktop and application virtualization
Building the future of the desktop on the software-defined data center
SDDC-powered virtual desktop and application benefits
To streamline the process of maintaining desktop environments, many IT managers are turning to mobile-cloud first approaches to application and desktop delivery.
And if your business is in a similar transition, due to trends in BYOD, changing application delivery models, and worker mobility, your end-user computing environments could be becoming overly complex.
To combat this rising complexity, you need to consider implementing hybrid consumption models that work at scale and address security threats.
Read this white paper that details how the next generation of desktop architectures is taking mobility into account and how IT strategies are shifting from managing devices to managing users.

Too often, learning is treated as an isolated activity that occurs separately from employees’ everyday work. This is changing because of employee learning styles, the speed of our global environment, and the mobility of workers. In this report you will learn to understand why today’s learning strategies are not working, examples of successful learning culture implementations, and how to build a learning culture.
By next year over half of all US companies will formally support BYOD, bringing on the challenge of securing data and applications on devices that may often be in the hands malicious users, or worse – teenagers looking to win a game of Pokémon Go with mom’s work iPhone. And, thanks to the consumerization of IT, mobile users increasingly expect the same smooth user experience with business applications that is provided by popular games and consumer applications.
Fortunately, increased mobility and the bring your own device explosion don’t always add up to increased security challenges and UI/UX struggles. This Tech Byte series will look at the most important considerations when planning a mobile strategy – from application development platform to security and governance to user interface guidelines, and present best practices that businesses of all kinds can use to help ensure a successful shift towards a mobile-first enterprise.
If you function like most IT organizations, you've spent the past few years relying on mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and client management tools to get the most out of your enterprise endpoints while limiting the onset of threats you may encounter.
In peeling back the onion, you'll find little difference between these conventional tools and strategies in comparison to those that Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have employed since the dawn of the modern computing era. Their use has simply become more:
Time consuming, with IT trudging through mountains of endpoint data;
Inefficient, with limited resources and limitless issues to sort through for opportunities and threats; and
Costly, with point solution investments required to address gaps in OS support across available tools.

As more employees desire to use their personal smartphones for work, IT managers must leverage the opportunity, or risk their organizations missing out on an emerging business trend. It's no longer feasible for an IT department, regardless of company size, to ignore the smartphone push from the majority of the employee population. IT management must attempt to channel the chaos and determine ways to embrace the personal mobility wave while maintaining effective security and management measures, especially in relation to the corporate network. This free whitepaper discusses innovative mobile strategies, new policies, and a fresh approach to allowing smartphones access to corporate resources.

The explosion in mobility and the increasing number of ways to connect with the corporate network has created an IT environment that is increasingly difficult to manage, and that leads to inconsistent user experience. Mobile WAN optimization can help overcome many of the challenges of running a distributed environment by improving the performance of critical enterprise applications, which lowers the cost of effectively supporting mobile workers and eliminates the need for many organizations to pursue expensive strategies and upgrades.
