Across enterprises of all kinds, data is multiplying rapidly in both quantity and variety. Across multi-cloud environments, new sources are exponentially increasing the growing stream of information, including the Internet of Things, social media, mobile devices, virtual reality implementations and optical tracking.
The rise of the cloud and mobile computing has rapidly changed the nature of enterprise cybersecurity. The old paradigm, where all work was done behind a company firewall, has been breaking down.
Employees work not just at the office, but also on the road and at home, on mobile devices and on their own personal computers. They’re no longer using a limited stack of enterprise applications. Instead, they increasingly require access to a wide variety of apps, cloud services, and new communication platforms.

IT services such as mobile devices, smart applications and cloud-based services are transforming the way we live, work and communicate. Global technology services and businesses are embracing digital transformation, introducing Intelligent Spaces to unleash worker productivity and accelerate the pace of business. The workplace plays a critical role in an organization’s digital transformation. Forward-looking organizations recognize that you can’t build a digital business without building a digital workplace.
The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers. For midsize firms around the world, those with 100–999 employees, mobile resources play a key role in improving workplace productivity as well as allowing greater flexibility in how and where work is done.
New collaboration resources also allow staff in different locations to work together as efficiently and effectively as staff in the same office. The challenge for IT management is how best to coordinate the different collaborative and mobile resources and provide secure management of mobile devices and collaboration tools while enhancing workforce agility and productivity.

A revolution is taking place, and it’s happening in every corporate office across the globe. Mobile devices have completely transformed the way we work, and with the increasing capabilities of the next generation of devices, the need to incorporate mobility into your strategic planning is only going to increase.
Your data is everywhere. It’s in the cloud, in virtual environments, in remote offices, and on mobile devices. Plus, there’s more of it, and much of it is business-critical, meaning you need to back up larger volumes of data than ever before without adding costs or bandwidth. Even more importantly, you need the ability to restore data quickly in the event of a disaster, failure, outage. The cost of data protection is higher now more than ever.
We are children of the information generation. No longer tied to large mainframe computers, we now access information via applications, mobile devices, and laptops to make decisions based on real-time data.
There is a remarkable transformation in how people access systems and information. Mobile devices are rapidly overtaking computers as the primary information consumption means. In a recent report, The Economist has projected a growth in the number of mobile devices to reach 10 billion by 2020 and the shipment of mobile devices to be almost two times that of laptops and PCs as early as 2013.
The rapid pace of mobile apps demands new approaches to functional testing. To bring high-quality software to market quickly, your organization needs a strategy that moves you beyond the limitations of testing conducted on devices you manage in an internal lab. This paper outlines five strategic steps to get you there today-and move your processes into the era of the app.
Mobility services are frequently being positioned as part of broader application transformation offerings, enabling enterprises to support the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach, with the development of enterprise app stores and the ability to leverage personal devices for business functions.
This white paper describes software and services that accelerate and simplify the creation of internally developed or “in-house” enterprise mobile applications. It also describes how to deploy and manage these mobile apps on both company-provided and “bring-your-own” smartphones and tablet computers. Solving the complete mobile app lifecycle means transforming enterprise apps for multiscreen devices; facilitating design, testing, security, performance, management, and compliance to reach new customers and employee expectations.
In today’s mobile world, the user is at the center of the application experience. This is true whether the user is a customer, a partner, or an employee. Yet meeting the needs for the enterprise user poses particular challenges. Apps must work seamlessly across devices and screen sizes, enabling real-time collaboration, without sacrificing data security. This balance requires a mobile app development platform built for the unique demands of the enterprise.
It wasn’t long ago that being on the cutting edge of business meant having a website where customers could purchase your products, but that quickly changed. Soon, it wasn’t enough just to have an e-commerce presence; you had to offer an interactive and engaging customer experience (see Web 2.0).
Now the standard has shifted once again; in order to truly compete in the modern economy, your business needs to have a mobile storefront on smart phones and tablets. Without this mobile presence, you’ll lose business to competitors who have them.
With this new challenge comes high risk as well as great reward. With mobility, the client side of your applications is more important than ever. Instead of accessing your website from the safe confines of work or home, your customers can now perform sensitive transactions anywhere. As a result, mobile applications, and the devices and data they interact with, can now be more easily attacked.
Mobile applications have swept across geographic boundaries, cultures, and enterprises faster than any previous technology innovation.
Consumers around the world use them to find their way when they travel by car and verify flight details when they travel by air. They check bank balances and sports scores, reserve theater tickets and dining reservations, shop online, pay bills, download entertainment, and participate in dozens of other everyday activities—using convenient portable devices like smart phones and tablets.
The demand for this kind of convenience has spilled over into the world of work as well, and employees today expect to use their mobile devices to check email, participate in meetings, access files—even use enterprise applications, like ERP and CRM, that drive business processes.
The year 2011 ended with a staggering 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions, especially significant considering that the total world population is around 7.011 billion. Of course, a direct comparison is not fair since many people have multiple subscriptions, but it represents a window into the pervasiveness of these devices and how they are an integral part of people’s lives today. For enterprises, this also represents the impending end to the old computing era and the emergence of the mobile worker.
Enabling mobility in the workplace is a top-of-mind goal for decision-makers within every organization. This necessity is brought about by the consumerization of IT and the requirement to develop policies to manage the “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) trend.
There is no question that mobile computing is growing at an
exponential rate. This rapid transformation has seen security
concerns outpaced by the ease of use, flexibility, and productivity of mobile devices. When vulnerabilities are exploited, the security of mission-critical data becomes a serious concern. Here we take a look at three of the top mobile application security threats facing businesses today and recommendations on how to mitigate the risk.
In today’s hyperconnected world—with its multiple mobile devices, ubiquitous Internet access and pervasive social media platforms—people expect immediate access to information and services. These expectations are increasingly felt in corporate IT departments, where business units demand instant applications and fast services.
Virtualization and cloud computing can help corporate IT meet these demands by bringing more flexibility and agility to the environment. But the ultimate solution is to transform the way IT is delivered. Indeed, many enterprises have already started on the journey toward the IT as a service (ITaaS) model.
