63 million employees in the US are expected to telecommute, at least occasionally, by 2016. The lines between professional and personal life are blurring faster than ever before. More work gets done or can be done from outside the confines of traditional office.
This calls for a flexible workplace, where IT enables end-users to be highly productive, while not compromising on the security and management of data and devices. Building an agile, mobile, collaborative work environment is the key.
