How To Stay Covered in the Mobile Work Downpour How To Stay Covered in the Mobile Work Downpour Presentation Transcript

  • How To Stay Covered in the Mobile Work Downpour
  • Once upon a time people went to the office five days a week. They worked hard, side by side with their colleagues, from 8 to 5. It was challenging. Workers sat in rush-hour traffic. It was difficult to find time to attend to personal affairs. People had to miss family events.
  • Because the digital rains meant that the workforce went mobile, freelance, and global, it signaled the end of an epoch. People required alternative means for doing business that used to be done desk to desk. Companies sought new ways to build work relationships. Even from a distance, people needed to work face to face. Workers wanted flexible tools—such as remote access and video conferencing—to navigate a less routine and more complex business world. Then came the digital rains. It rained devices, data, applications, and new media. These technologies enabled workers to work outside of the office—anytime, from anywhere. This was a whole new paradigm. It rained for years.
  • With the rains came a flood of vendors offering solutions to accommodate this new work-style paradigm. Solution providers offered options for internal social networking, online meetings, video conferencing, and desktop and mobile support.
  • In the fast-moving mobile world, one company built an all-inclusive platform that made it possible for workers to collaborate, share information, and access data—essentially allowing anyone to work from anywhere. With Citrix, businesses could provide employees with highly secure, resilient, and flexible virtual “offices” that could accommodate any work style from anywhere, and share information from any device.
  • With virtual office tools, mobile teams could engage socially while delivering on sophisticated projects. They could join a video meeting from any location in seconds. They could share and sync files across devices. They could get technical support for any device from any device. Workers could even switch to a different device—and resume work where they left off.
  • Workers’ personal and professional lives became more flexible and interchangeable. Work got done when it needed to happen—whenever, wherever. Personal lives could be tended to during traditional work hours, and vice versa. Business became more fluid, and work flowed uninterrupted, bringing never-before-seen changes into the work landscape.
  • While colleagues and collaborators still talk about the weather, they do so in a new way that integrates the downpour of mobility opportunities. With Citrix, people can experience work and life in harmony. Let it rain. Let us be your umbrella in the storm, your boat in the flood, and your work tools in the cloud.
