In collaborative spaces, people naturally share ideas, which leads to innovation and growth. But how do you design
a workplace that provides a highly collaborative atmosphere and that incorporates what people want? According
to the Cisco® 2014 Connected World Technology Report, the top five workplace trends are:
• Flexibility and coworking
• Space customization
• Employee wellness
• Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs
This free, 64-page guide provides a framework for deciding if you need an EMMS solution, details the capabilities of the leading platforms, and compares offerings from leading vendors. It also covers questions to ask vendors and industry trends - including the rise of mobile, the increasing number of social media networks, and the impact of marketplace consolidation.
There are many ways to take advantage of the rich set of collaboration tools provided by Microsoft Skype for Business (formerly Lync). IT leaders should consider a cap-and grow strategy where investment dollars in legacy systems are capped and the financial and IT resources are reallocated to grow Skype for Business.
A true integrated video collaboration solution should be able to connect disparate environments and provide a high quality and simple experience for users. Such a unified solution, when integrated into an intuitive, foolproof workflow for multipoint video collaboration, has the potential to transform the culture of video collaboration and realize highly leveraged end-to end group collaboration.

Since Wi-Fi first appeared in smartphones ten years ago, owners and managers of public places like hospitals, university campuses, and shopping malls have hoped that Wi-Fi would offer a replacement for cell service, especially in areas that are not well-covered by the major carriers. Until recently, there was no universal, multi-operator coverage solution.
It's no secret that the use smart phones is exploding. According to a recent report from the Pew Research Center, 34% Americans go online mostly using their phones, and not using some other device such as a desktop or laptop computer. The implication for location based marketing and ecommerce, customer service, and personalized, permission based marketing is enormous, but the rules of engagement are markedly different for mobile communications.
Location-based services (LBS) show promise as a budding customer-centric mobility solution in some early adopting verticals such as retail, hospitality, and large public venues. Such services enable businesses to better understand their customer base through analytics as well as offer targeted, context-based communications including promotions and remote assistance. This IDC white paper explores the burgeoning LBS market, highlighting custom research conducted by IDC in March and April 2014; surveys were fielded to both IT and line-of-business (LOB) decision makers in select verticals and market segments. In this white paper, IDC analyzes the data and explores the attitudes surrounding LBS adoption in the context of broader technology trends.

Midsize firms from every region and industry are finding themselves under increasing pressure to improve productivity and business performance. Firms with 100 up to 1,000 or even 2,500 employees are still agile enough to respond to new opportunities, but they typically lack the comprehensive resources of larger companies to empower workers, manage processes, and generally drive successful customer engagement.
This white paper examines the opportunity midmarket firms have in leveraging network infrastructure for competitive success in the new cloud and mobility era. Midmarket firms can improve their competitive position by providing more efficient access to advanced productivity resources.
This part of the CVD describes design considerations to implement a successful BYOD solution and different deployment models to address diverse business cases. Other parts of the CVD provide more details on how to implement unique use cases.
There are numerous ways to enable a BYOD solution based on the unique business requirements of a specific organization. While some organizations may take a more open approach and rely on basic authentication, other organizations will prefer more secure ways to identify, authenticate, and authorize devices. A robust network infrastructure with the capabilities to manage and enforce these policies is critical to a successful BYOD deployment.
Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs) provide the foundation for systems design based on common use cases or current engineering system priorities. They incorporate a broad set of technologies, features, and applications to address customer needs. Cisco engineers have comprehensively tested and documented each CVD in order to ensure faster, more reliable, and fully predictable deployment.
