People, devices and data going mobile: reasons to develop a Consumerization Strategy
People have become mobile across locations and through time. During the last decade, working remotely has become increasingly prevalent. Many of the world’s leading organizations, including British Telecom, Procter & Gamble, Microsoft, IBM, and Accenture have already partially or fully eliminated traditional offices. This trend will accelerate in the coming decades in response to the ongoing globalization of work, ever-increasing customer demands, and the cost and time of commuting. At the same time, remote employees as well as managers are becoming increasingly aware of the challenges associated with virtual work with regard to internal communication, social interaction, and employee satisfaction and commitment.
