Mobility and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) have transformed the idea of a 9-to-5 workplace. Employees now check their email first thing in the morning and expect to stay connected whenever and wherever they go throughout the day.
As the workplace transcends the conventional borders of corporate data and telephony networks, managing business communications is becoming much more complex—especially for IT leaders. For example, BYOD offers benefits such as eliminating the need to provision a company-owned device for every employee.
The world of work is changing. Not so long ago, most employees reported to a “desk job” in an office, and companies recruited talent locally. Businesses now recognize that to compete in an increasingly uncertain economy—and to attract skilled workers—they need to become more flexible, particularly about where employees work.
