Going mobile is no longer about carrying a single mobile device. Now it means the ability for any user to pick up any device in the context of what they are doing, and have instant access to all of the “stuff”-settings, data, and applications that follow the user and flow seamlessly from device to device.
There should be no question that companies are under pressure to increase IT productivity. IT productivity should enhance an organization’s growth and promote economic well-being. We can help you communicate the way you want. Fast. Effortlessly.
