Steve Jobs has a lot to answer for. The humble smartphone has provided connectivity, productivity and entertainment beyond our wildest dreams in little over a decade. But the rate at which this device has come into our lives and changed the way we communicate, watch television, shop, bank and work has had a huge impact on businesses all over the word.
End users are putting pressure on their IT department like never before, demanding flexibility and a seamless experience on their work laptops, tablets and mobiles. Not to mention that nearly every employee has their own smartphone, so why can’t they use that powerful computer in their pocket to do their job.
The seamless experience of using apps like Uber, Spotify and Monzo in everyday life has conditioned end users to want that same experience during their hours of work. But IT needs to have a stable, standardised platform to enable these devices to work within the secure perimeters of business.
In this webinar we address the key issues surrounding mobility and productivity and what the office of the future may look like. We also take a look at the changing role of the CIO and how the job used to be about “keeping the lights on”, but now has wider implications for a retailer’s overall digital strategy.
• Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) was the hottest buzzword five years ago, but where are we now in terms of employees using their own mobiles to perform tasks within the workplace?
• What does the workplace of the future look like?
• How can retailers use solutions such as the cloud and virtualisation to make their employees’ lives easier?
• How do organisations de-mystify printing in a digital workplace? How can retailers make the simple experience of hitting ‘print’ easy and seamless for their workers?
• How has the role of the CIO changed in recent years?
