With trends such as big data, artificial intelligence and IoT dominating
today’s business technology headlines, the buzz around enterprise
mobility (now considered known and familiar) may have lessened, but
its importance has not. Consider its key role in today’s top tech trends,
and then also consider this. According to an Oxford Economics survey
of 500 senior IT executives, CEOs, and other senior managers, 80%
say workers cannot do their jobs effectively without a mobile
device. The same survey shows:
82% say mobile devices are critical to employee productivity
82% say mobile devices are critical to agility and the speed of decision making
76% say mobile devices are critical to customer service and satisfaction
75% say mobile devices are critical to innovation and collaboration
70% say mobile devices are critical to employee satisfaction
and 70% say mobile devices are critical to revenue growth.

The future of work means a new IT balancing act
No matter what the work of your organization, today it’s likely done…
…As much out of the office as in it
…As much on mobile devices as traditional computers
…And much more through cloud applications for core business activities and collaboration with
customers and partners.
The future of work has arrived, and with it comes a complex new balancing act for IT.
On one side of the scale are high expectations for how IT can enable digital transformation
and innovation in the business. On the other side is more accountability for mitigating risk,
even as growing adoption of new technologies means more apps, more devices, and more
mobile employees. This balancing act is driven by current challenges and trends in four areas.

Enterprises are leveraging advancements in what IDC calls “3rd Platform” technologies — cloud, Big Data, mobility, and social — to create new business opportunities and gain competitive advantage. These trends are putting more pressure on IT organizations to transform their datacenter operations to better support business initiatives aimed at reducing costs, increasing revenue, and strengthening customer relationships. This has driven increased demand for converged or integrated systems that provide the tools needed to reduce capital costs, improve operational efficiencies and, ultimately, increase agility within the datacenter.
MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary
Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes.
Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.
