Enterprise organizations around the world are rapidly shifting their corporate apps and data to the cloud to drive IT efficiency and expand employee access to business processes. This applies not only to productivity suites like Microsoft Office 365, but also to enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions like MobileIron.
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.
As the primary focus of IT moves from increasing IT productivity through virtualization and cloud computing to enhancing business productivity, the biggest challenge that businesses face in executing corporate strategy is focusing the right people and resources on strategic initiatives. A key element in enhancing business productivity is driving down costs, which can help free up the funds needed to make strategic investments. Businesses also need a means to more effectively orchestrate how IT interacts with business processes and critical application environments. The solution lies in using managed services. Read here to find out more on how companies gained significant and quantifiable benefits from using managed services.
Many, if not most, organizations today are grappling with the challenge of a growing mobile technology environment. Mobility can deliver many key benefits: improved collaboration among workers, enhanced customer service, easier access to corporate information from many locations and increased productivity—to name a few.
But the proliferation of mobile devices and applications
also comes with its share of challenges, perhaps none more important than ensuring the security of the devices themselves as well as the data they contain and the enterprise networks they access.
The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN) must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and overall corporate productivity.

Your corporate email is a vital repository of critical business information. In the age of the cloud and mobility, empowering users accessing that information quickly and efficiently can’t be an afterthought.
You may think you can get by with your old email archive, but your organization and your employees will suffer without the latest technology.
Learn more in this TechTarget whitepaper Email Archiving: It’s Time for an Update. Download now to get the facts about:
How archaic email archives slow down productivity and increase IT help desk burdens
Why return-on-investment for old archiving solutions hurt your bottom line
Ways poor e-discovery capabilities leave you vulnerable in legal challenges
Data fuels workforce productivity. But corporate data typically resides in disparate silos spread across on-premises networks and cloud repositories. Knowledge workers are forced to repeatedly disrupt daily workflows to gather information from this data sprawl — a time-consuming and inefficient activity that diminishes productivity. They need a single point of access to all data sources, available from any device, where they can share and manipulate the content resources required to do their jobs.
In today’s dynamic business environment where applications and data are accessed outside of traditional corporate boundaries, IT must embrace the needs of both the business and an ever present mobile workforce. From business agility to employee efficiency, the never-ending quest for improved productivity is found in organisations across industries. And throughout it all, IT is charged with maintaining an organisation’s infrastructure, and security and access, while working to support initiatives that keep the business agile and growing, and employees productive.
Mimecast Cloud Archive has long set the industry standard for enterprise information archiving, helping to keep corporate knowledge available, protecting and preserving it while simplifying management and administration.
By aggregating data across multiple platforms, organizations gain long-term business insights and create a secure, digital corporate memory while at the same time reducing costs and risks for legal and compliance teams. IT teams can reduce administrative overhead with streamlined management and simplified data recovery. Anytime, anywhere access to archive data improves employee productivity and efficient workflow efficiency.
Customers can rest assured that their data is always-available, always-replicated and always-safe.
Learn how to achieve an app centric approach to enterprise mobility and see how this will enable workers to stay connected to corporate systems through a vast array of device types and wireless connectivity options while simultaneously increasing productivity and becoming more customer-centric.
