Mobility in the New Normal means being able to keep up with employees, customers, suppliers in newer ways than ever before imagined. The transition is driven by trends such as BYOD and mobile convergence into everyday tasks. Like Social tools, this consumer-driven wave of demand for mobile transformation is flowing across every aspect of the desktop and digital business plans. This segment covers what is driving this demand, and the new requirements and key focus areas IT will want and need to plan for. By working closely with business partners to scope areas of priority and fast ROI, you can then assess back end readiness for new device and application access, security, voice and data convergence. In many cases, legacy modernization plans can leapfrog to mobility with the help of unified communications and fixed mobile convergence technologies.
