Enterprise PC Buying Patterns Are Changing As Buyers Look To Improve Both
Security And The Employee Experience At Once
As employee mobility increases globally and enterprise investments shift to tablets and laptops, organizations are assessing their ongoing investment in traditional PCs. One thing that remains clear is that enterprise PC buyers still value the security and
performance offered by fixed computing solutions. They also say that new form factors like the micro PC help them deliver a
better experience to employees, which they value at least as much as security.
Wireless technology is increasingly used in machine safety applications. New solutions introduce mobility and offer higher levels of flexibility and safety for plant floor operators. This eBook explores how modern wireless implementations can increase user safety and mobility, reduce installation costs, and boost productivity.
Oggi la tecnologia digitale Ť ovunque: cloud, mobility, social network e Internet of Things stanno cambiando il modo in cui tutti noi lavoriamo e ci divertiamo. Questo mondo digitale in rapida evoluzione sta anche rimodellando il rapporto tra le aziende e i clienti, che ora si aspettano dai propri brand preferiti un'esperienza utile e interattiva. Anche la sicurezza Ť motivo di preoccupazione. Azienda e clienti si scambiano un volume in continuo aumento di dati sensibili, aumentando i fattori di rischio.La trasformazione del mercato sta inoltre intensificando la concorrenza. Come osserva l'analista Mark Raskino, "Come conseguenza, tutti i contendenti hanno rielaborato le proprie strategie e si sono risvegliate alla potenza del business digitale nello stesso momento. Il conflitto Ť quindi inevitabile.
Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.

While we tend to think about mobility largely as a consumer phenomenon, it is also changing how the workforce carries
out business. With so much being done beyond traditional office walls, many insurance companies, financial service
organizations and even government agencies are adopting mobile tablets and smartphones as productivity tools for
agents, representatives and personnel, and developing enterprise apps for these devices.

The bar has been raised higher than ever, and the role of IT is evolving to meet it. As a result, IT must support applications and services that make it possible for the business to provide new, diverse customer experiences while generating expanding revenues via the emergent crown jewels of business: big data, cloud, and mobility.

Today, mobility is no longer a trend. Itís the new reality ó and it is reshaping the enterprise. Gone are the days of employees tethered to desktop computers, and theyíre 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 arenít limiting themselves to a single device, either. In just the last year, the number of devices managed by enterprises grew an incredible 72 percent.
Today, mobility is no longer a trend. Itís an established reality, reshaping the enterprise. This white paper is the second in a three-part series on enabling the mobile desktop while securing information and protecting your organization.

The mobile device is part and parcel of daily life. Itís fundamentally changed the way consumers behave, and this influence has spread to the enterprise sector as well. For instance, patron-owned mobile devices have largely helped pave the way for the widespread emergence of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies. Ten years ago, the idea of a company employee logging into the enterprise system while theyíre on an airplane over the Atlantic would seem far-fetched, but today such behavior is relatively commonplace. Mobility is changing how we shop, work and live our daily lives.
Enterprise IT is changing. Itís evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated. Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative. The evolution of IT requires a network that evolves along with ITís changing requirements Ė a network that continuously adapts to ever-changing security threats, and evolving digitization, mobility, IoT and cloud requirements.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With todayís increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level.

The ever-rising tide of demands on IT organizations is creating constant pressure on their leaders to upgrade or replace their outmoded legacy systems with new infrastructure technologies that will allow them to keep pace with the speed of business. It is no longer sufficient to manage basic business applications and resources such as ERP, email, and silos of heterogeneous data. The bar has been raised higher than ever, and the role of IT is evolving to meet it. As a result, IT must support applications and services that make it possible for the business to provide new, diverse customer experiences while generating expanding revenues via the emergent crown jewels of business: big data, cloud, and mobility.
To overcome the challenges and risks of the digital era, while positioning their businesses for success, SMBs need to partner with professional services organizations with the expertise that can safely guide them through achieving the following six key IT business initiatives:
A strong information security framework (for external and internal threats)
24x7 application availability
Pervasive, end-to-end data protection
End-to-end professional services
If youíre a small-to-midsized business (SMB), you know that youíre operating in a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment. Customers want their demands met instantly, and increasing competition multiplies the pressure youíre under. If you canít deliver, you can be sure somebody else will.
Fortunately, the technology landscape is changing the way you do business. Mobility, social media, and Big Data are leveling the playing field and making it possible for companies like yours to access more sophisticated technology, reach bigger audiences, target their messages, and innovate in their offerings. Yet nothing has changed the landscape so much as the cloud.

For small and midsize businesses, the realities of a dynamic marketplace and ever-changing customer expectations pose continual challenges and opportunities. Big Data, the cloud and mobility are changing the way information moves and connections are made across the organization, offering productive potential while promising competitive advantage. But adoption of these advanced technologies will require a transformation in the capacities, functions and methods of IT.
