Who doesn’t want happier employees and the ability to reduce IT costs? Sounds like a winning combination to me. A survey conducted by American Lawyer found that enabling BYOD at law firms can result in just those outcomes. Seventy percent of CIOs and technology executives surveyed said that BYOD programs produce “more cheerful users” and 27 percent said BYOD reduces budget spent for equipment.

How would you feel if a competitor picked up your product specs? An investor got a copy of your quarterly financials before earnings? An employee’s personnel file ended up with the press? Not great? Yet employees within your organization may be unknowingly gambling with the security of corporate data every time they use unsanctioned public cloud file sharing and storage services.

Aside from the executive management team in an organization, the top priority for access to planned mobile roll-outs is the sales force, according to a recent industry survey by AIIM.

This is a new frontier in productivity: mobile access to enterprise content management (ECM) systems.

We know IT departments have long been the Hero in any organization – working to protect sensitive information from villains, and help the technologically-challenged navigate the perils of the BYOD. It’s a big job and one that would certainly be easier with superhuman powers.

Sync is one of the most valuable additions to any mobile operating system. Sync is what enables us to keep information automatically synchronized across phone, tablet, laptop and desktop computing devices so that we can continue working and playing from any device we pick up.

Mobile security continues to be a hot topic of conversation among CIOs and IT directors – as it should be with 97% of employees using mobile devices on the job. That number tells us that the majority of organizations today are supporting BYOD, but yet a shocking number (72%) have yet to take action to properly secure those devices and the mobile content that is being accessed and shared day in and day out.

Does your management team have what it takes to lead and manage a mobile workforce? With all the talk about the mobile workforce, the conversation often revolves around employee requirements, productivity, and IT infrastructure needed to securely support remote workers. What isn’t discussed often enough, and should be, is how leaders’ management skills need to evolve to fit into our mobile-enabled world.
