Mobility

Driven by an explosion in new device types and ubiquitous connectivity, mobility is redefining how people use technology in every aspect of their lives. It’s also redefining the technology experiences they expect from businesses—both as employees (or more broadly, in their professional interactions) and as customers. On the business side, mobility empowers users to keep the business moving from anywhere. On the customer side, today’s consumers want and, in some cases, expect to be able to interact with businesses through a rich mobile experience—the kind of experience that will keep them coming back for more. In both of these aspects, mobility is becoming a competitive differentiator.

Embracing mobility will help you streamline workflows and cut down on the time it takes to deliver end value. The emerging trends and technologies will allow you to rethink the opportunities in deskless work scenarios, engage customers more deeply, and gain competitive advantage.

Customer stories

Mobile campus

Seton Hall University students stay connected and on the go, and faculty communicate and collaborate using Windows 8 mobile devices. This approach improves the university’s network security, simplifies IT management, and equips students with mobile devices and software that work for them now and prepare them for the future.

Mobile workers gain more freedom

Japan Airlines took full advantage of the opportunity to use Microsoft Cloud Vantage Services to accelerate its move to Office 365. With online access to the communication and collaboration tools they need, the company’s employees more easily connect with colleagues and get more done—from practically any location and device. With fewer restrictions on receiving, managing, and sending large files, employees can stay focused on working with colleagues to address the needs of the business, instead of solving technology issues.
