Networking involves at least two devices capable of being networked with at least one usually being a computer. The devices can be separated by a few meters (e.g. via Bluetooth) or thousands of kilometers (e.g. via the Internet).
Join us on July 30th at 10am PT, the panelists will examine the current state of enterprise mobility programs and outline concrete steps and examples that businesses can take to reboot their own mobility efforts.
As organizations embrace smartphones, tablets and mobile applications, they are moving beyond simply providing mobile email and browser capability to offering mobile access to Windows-based and other corporate applications.
Mobile devices and applications are quickly becoming as important and widespread in the enterprise as PCs and traditional business apps. Thanks to the consumerization of IT and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs, the workplace has expanded beyond the office and even the home to wherever the user happens to be. Traveling executives and Millennials alike expect to communicate, collaborate and access their important work applications and data from anywhere on whatever device they choose.

According to nearly every analyst study, security is the primary inhibitor to both enterprise mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs, and 17% of enterprises have already experienced a mobile breach. Yet the opportunities they present and a workforce reluctant to give up using their devices for work means taking your enterprise mobile is not something you can avoid. But you can do it safely. This white paper from Citrix provides a checklist to follow to ensure your company can embrace enterprise mobility securely.
Successful cloud implementations not only require the best solutions, they also necessitate proper execution to realize your business objectives and yield the greatest results.

Your business is complex. Big data promises to manage this complexity to make better decisions. But the technology services that run your business are also complex. Many are too complex to manage easily, fueling more complexity, delays, and downtime. Forrester predicts this will inevitably get worse. To combat this onslaught, you can no longer just accelerate current practices or rely on human intelligence. You need machines to analyze conditions to invoke the appropriate actions. These actions themselves can be automated. To perform adaptive, full-service automation, you need IT analytics, a disruption to your
existing monitoring and management strategy.
