Can the human workforce adapt to the digitised workplace?

It's predicted that the next decade's most in-demand jobs don't even exist yet and that thousands of today's jobs will become obsolete. The world has become digitised and the consequences will be profound.

Digitisation is revolutionising workplaces from the inside out. The human workforce must adapt or risk being left behind.

Enterprise mobility is a top technology trend. How ready are you and your organisation to embrace this revolution?

Mobility has become more complex for large enterprises, and particularly for multinationals that need to manage the mobility of their staff across many countries. There are simply more users with more devices using more applications.

In addition, there has been a blurring of the boundaries between business and personal usage and many IT managers struggle to enforce company policies while employees demand more consumer-like devices and applications. Their need for support in managing this complexity and cost has never been greater.

It is disconcerting to know that very few organisations have a clear picture of what mobility will cost them.
