Today, mobility is no longer a trend. It’s the new reality — and it is reshaping the enterprise. Gone are the days of employees tethered to desktop computers, and they’re no longer dependent on an Ethernet or wi-fi connection to work remotely. More and more enterprise employees are conducting daily work transactions on mobile devices. Mobility surged to 1.3 billion workers in 2015, continuing a 33 percent growth trend since 2010. These mobile workers aren’t limiting themselves to a single device, either. In just the last year, the number of devices managed by enterprises grew an incredible 72 percent.
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.

VMware AirWatch® features a new – and more efficient – approach to Windows lifecycle management across any use case – whether deploying the OS to your remote workers, onboarding employees’ BYO machines, corporate deployments across your branch offices or managing a special line of business terminal. The unified endpoint management technologies fundamentally changes how organizations approach PC lifecycle management, allowing IT to deploy security patches and remediate vulnerabilities faster, install software more reliably and quickly and consolidate operational processes across devices on or off the domain.
Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
Most companies enable workers to work remotely, and when users are remote, they expect instant secure access to the business applications they need, on the device of their choice. View the Rise of the Remote Worker infographic to better understand the challenges IT departments face around management and security of remote workers.
The diversity and bureaucratic nature of government agencies have complicated communication for decades. But today digital technologies offer a path to connectivity and information sharing that could help break the gridlock. Innovative mobile and field force automation (FFA) technologies are helping state and federal government agencies break down the walls that hindered cooperation and decision making between offices and field personnel.
From transportation, highways, and public works to healthcare, social, and financial aid agencies, the missions are as varied as the communities they serve. Infrastructure projects can take government employees from crowded downtowns to remote rural settings for site surveys, safety checks, or construction work. Social workers may need to make home visits, attend cross-town meetings, and lengthy court hearings, all in one shift. Wherever their duties take them, field personnel must constantly update the main office with situational data and assessment

Global competition for talent, outsourcing labor, compliance legislation, remote workers, aging populations – these are just a few of the daunting challenges faced by HR organizations today. Yet the most commonly monitored workforce metrics do very little to deliver true insight into these topics. Leaders need to graduate from metrics to analytics, surfacing the important connections and patterns in their data to make better workforce decisions.
Today, working remotely has never been easier, due to the ubiquity of mobile devices and reliable Internet connectivity. The ease with which a worker can get connected to the corporate network delivers the impression that your co-worker is down the hall, when in fact they are traveling internationally. Global Workplace Analytics’ research shows that increasingly, working remotely is not only commonplace, it is encouraged and has shown to improve productivity.
Device-centric management strategies have prevailed over the last several years, but this approach can no longer keep pace with the increasing number of remote workers who need to access more applications across multiple platforms. Enterprise IT leaders must shift from locking down devices to securing the corporate applications, data, and other proprietary content that reside on these devices. It’s time to move beyond mobile device management to a more holistic management method.

The world of work is changing. Not so long ago, most employees reported to a “desk job” in an office, and companies recruited talent locally. Businesses now recognize that to compete in an increasingly uncertain economy—and to attract skilled workers—they need to become more flexible, particularly about where employees work.
The traditional workforce model of permanent employees located in a single or small number of offices has undergone a significant transformation in recent years, accelerated by the effects of the current economic landscape. Drivers of this trend include initiatives to drive growth and expand into other markets, improve customer service, speed to market, improve decision-making processes, and increase both worker and overall organisational productivity.
