Mobility Options Enhance Collaboration
The workplace is no longer a place. "Work" has become an activity instead of a location as mobile devices allow people to be productive from home, a coffee shop, or an office.
Collaboration is changing. We're evolving from collaboration based on sharing files and information to collaboration based on communication and conversation - the structure is shifting from a model centered on documents to one built around people.This is especially true as people work with others across locations, using richer interaction styles including web conferencing, voice, and video - increasingly using mobile devices as their primary platform.
The scale and speed of adoption of smartphones, tablets, social tools and virtualization brings specific challenges to IT in terms of:
- Access control
IT organizations are no longer restricted to locking down a PC image to a few desktop options. By delivering applications as services, they can maintain control over the corporate computing environment, while better meeting the expectations of employees who have quickly become accustomed to the consumer world of selecting their own devices.
IT can offer more flexibility, allowing users to have multiple devices and choose which to use based on their needs at the time. Instead of putting the burden on IT departments to standardize on a single set of devices and constrain choice, the mobile clients for Cisco Collaboration applications allow consistency of experience without compromising security.
