Smartphones need genius infrastructure

Andrea Bradshaw, senior director and general manager, mobility solutions, CDW | May 15, 2013
Until roughly six years ago, mobile computers and telephones were really separate things.

Gartner sees enterprises looking beyond employer-owned devices, with 62% of respondents to another recent survey reporting they have or are implementing a BYOD program, as well they should. CDW's research found that more than half of BYOD participants (52%) use two or more mobile devices during a typical work day, so workers that once only touched their employer's network through a single desktop now enter through multiple points.

Mobility is already part of nearly every conversation CDW has with customers, whether they're talking about infrastructure, cloud, collaboration or business applications. Our response is to provide them a single place, online or by phone, where they can acquire, configure, manage, power and report on mobile devices as part of their infrastructure.

Revolutions of any kind are rarely forgiving, and this one is no different. Users are demanding to select and connect devices they choose, forcing change upon the IT department and tearing down the walls that once separated enterprise computing from the rest of the world. But we have the tools to help IT embrace the revolution and convert mobility into strategic advantage.
