Mobility isn't what it used to be. Once a tool reserved for executives and outside salespeople mobile devices are now used by many white-and blue-collar workers, who need the ability to reply to e-mails, access documents and use company applications from anywhere, anytime. That makes mobility, which had been a telecom issue, an IT concern.
CIO Insight's 2008 Mobility Survey uncovers significant penetration of mobile devices in the workplace, with nearly half of employees equipped with cell phones and nearly one-fifth with smart phones. It also shows how this increase in the use of mobility devices in the enterprise has affected IT organizations, as they invest in new infrastructure, train and retrain support staff, and address heightened compliance requirements.
