When it comes to worker safety, mitigating downtime, and boosting
productivity, nothing is faster than right NOW. Organizations across
various industry segments — construction, food and beverage, chemical
and industrial, and transportation equipment manufacturers — are
juggling a mix of communication devices, slowing response times. Gaps
in coverage, poor battery life and aging equipment reduce your ability to
safely and efficiently meet production deadlines. The power of NOW puts
instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because when
communication slows, production slows.
Manufacturers today are under immense pressure to produce goods
safely, efficiently and profitably. Meeting these goals requires reliable,
clear voice and data communications. So the production line is always
moving. So well-executed logistics exceed expectations. So materials
and operations are tracked to maintain efficiency. So your most valuable
assets — your people — are safe and connected.
In today’s increasingly mobile world, Energy workers require instant communication and access to data intelligence wherever the job
may take them. From the oil rig to the electric grid and everywhere in between, having the right data, in the right hands, at the right time,
no matter the environment or device of choice — is simply non-negotiable. Organizations across various Energy segments — oil & gas,
electric utilities, water utilities, and mining — are currently juggling a mix of communication devices and are hindered by gaps in coverage,
poor battery life and fragile equipment that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions.
Yet, citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, on clean running water, and on lights that turn on when they flip the switch.
Meeting these expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for Energy workers day-in and day-out. So oil & gas
workers can communicate safely in hazardous environments. So precious resources are

For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.

Yet it’s not just about IT providing the right tools and devices to its employees so they can get their jobs done effectively; IT needs to offer an overall workplace ecosystem that is secure and innovative. However, there are worrying gaps between what IT provides and what the different types of workers need.
Infrastructure and operations leaders must create a strategy and budget to outfit workers with devices, software, and services to improve their productivity. Additionally, I&O leaders play a critical role in both the strategy and budgetary support of customer-facing interaction technologies. This report helps you benchmark your organization against your peers as you work with business partners to develop and implement technology strategies that drive business results for your company.

Technology is transforming how we do our jobs, and employees expect the business to accommodate
their work habits.
› Companies must identify roles and profiles and support their needs. Not every employee will
require the same devices to get their jobs done efficiently and effectively. It is paramount for
organizations to seek out specific devices to enable different worker personas.
› IT must become a trusted partner to keep security top of mind. Employees showed a lack of trust
toward IT when facing an issue with their device or ecosystem. It is imperative for IT to become part of
the solution and not the problem; otherwise, workers will find ways to go around security policies and
fix problems on their own, putting the firm at even more risk.
› Employees require a more complete ecosystem. Employees need not only devices to get their jobs
done effectively but an entire ecosystem as well. Without this, businesses will fall further behind in a
fiercely competitive market and lose employ
Windows 8.1 is ready to give your business the tools you need to meet your workers' changing IT needs in a way that's reliable, productive and secure. Designed to respond equally well to touch as it does to a keyboard and mouse, read this paper to learn more about how the new Windows addresses today's workforce needs by enhancing mobile productivity, end-to-end security, and addresses virtualization and management advancements.
Today, technology is all about enabling business. Organizations of many types and sizes are developing, upgrading or replacing mobile applications to reflect changes in the workplace. Across industries, employees are working more while mobile, using multiple devices. When they return to the office, they are capitalizing on more flexible work environments and approaches to work.
Many organizations are facilitating this anytime, anywhere work
with mobility initiatives that provide mobile devices or allow
employees to use their own. They are also modifying workspace
designs, creating mobile workstations and mobile “hot spots” to
enable workers to easily connect to enterprise systems when
they return to the office.
Enabling employees to work better can help organizations
boost productivity and improve customer service. The real
challenge is to continue supporting new ways of working, now
and in the future, without compromising security.

Innovative technology continues to transform how business is done for small and large businesses alike. With technology and communication trends moving faster than ever before, it’s important to take advantage of these trends to keep the way we communicate with our employees, clients and coworkers current and seamless. Having an efficient communication system not only enables employees to be productive, but it ultimately leads to improving businesses’ bottom lines.
The mobile workspace has created problems for IT, including policy enforcement, attack from untrusted wireless networks, and physical data theft. This white paper examines how cloud-based security solutions can protect distributed workers.
Today's dynamic data demands pose new threats to security and IT professionals have to mitigate new risks without restricting the flow of information. Per findings discovered in a recent Forrester report, "Evolving Security to Accommodate the Modern Worker", Brett Hansen, Dell's Vice President of Client Software and General Manager of Data Security, shares his insights on solutions Dell provides to meet the needs of employees and IT.

• How flexible security can be to address the needs of various workers
• Which solutions are best at protecting your data
In order to keep pace with the growth of business mobility without falling prey to its potential risks, IT must be able to efficiently address complex issues ranging from service provisioning, device procurement, and security oversight. Why? Information workers need access to often sensitive information across a wide range of business applications and devices from wherever they are. In other words, security and privacy policies that doesn’t impede end-user productivity will empower workers and boost their performance.
In July 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester to conduct a study of the 21st century workforce and how their new habits, attitudes, and workstyles are reshaping the world of work. With more personas in a single organization to cater to, businesses are failing to deliver against workforce demands. To get their tasks done, workers are circumventing security policies to get what they want, in their moment of need. Organizations have to understand the different behaviors across
A surprising 80% of the 30 million1 warehouse workers worldwide, in the field of transportation and logistics, are still using pen and paper in a physically-intensive environment that increasingly demands accuracy and real time feedback. With warehouse efficiency, so closely tied to customer satisfaction in areas like ecommerce, the low penetration of digital solutions—20% as recent as 2014, is surprising. Unless an organization has a fully automated warehouse, the job is heavily labor-intensive. VDC research reveals that as long as human labor plays a dominant role in warehousing, any technology that optimizes workflows and improves accuracy will add tremendous value
Today there’s no such thing as “one size fits all” when it comes to enterprise mobile computing for field services workers. While the business benefits of automation are clear (e.g. decreased downtime, increased customer satisfaction), selecting the right mobile device mix for the job is becoming more complex. This whitepaper examines three challenges organizations face when considering a mobile device deployment for field workers:
1. Integrating new mobile devices with legacy technology
2. Adapting to multi-generational workforces
3. Choosing the right mobile device for the job.
Learn how to tackle these challenges and make technology decisions that improve worker productivity and help manage costs.
