  • 5. What Value Can Mobility Provide? Continuity of Operations − Agile response in the event of an emergency due to availability of resources at distributed locations Improved decision making− Easier access to information, as well as ability to take action Improved work life balance for employees− Allow employees to attend to family/personal obligations more easily Support for Telework initiative − Telework saved $30 million every day the government was closed during the major snowstorms of 2009/20101 More flexible IT environment − Leads to increased flexibility with technology refreshes 5
  • 6. Does Enabling Mobility Mean Providing Any DeviceEmployees Want?  Historically certain devices and systems were privileged − Email in the early 90’s − Laptops in the mid/late 90’s − Cell phones and Blackberries 2000’s  Organizations focus more on what employees need to perform their job as opposed to what they want  Today employees desire more “person-centric IT” − Younger employees are interested in the devices provided and access to external collaboration and communication sites (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Email, etc.) − Senior Executives are the primary culprits leading the way...Forrester found that 77 percent of executives buy their own hardware and 45 percent do the same for 6 software2

  • 8. Impact to Employees and Employers  What is the impact of always being connected? − Being cut off from work email significantly reduces stress and allows employees to focus far better, according to a new study by UC Irvine and U.S. Army researchers3 − It takes an average of 64 seconds to recover your train of thought after interruption4  I conducted a mini study to understand people’s preferences of mobile devices for work related purposes… − Do you have a mobile device? − Is this an employer provided device and did you have an option? − Why did you select the mobile device? − Does it make you more productive and how? 8
  • 9. What Did People Tell Me About Their MobileDevices? Home Life BlackBerry Position − It just works − Efficient for work related activities fe iPhone or Android Position Li k or − It just works W − I can check my personal email and external sites − Great apps, like Maps Tablet Position − Simpler and more comfortable form factor (can roam and use easily in all settings) − Can do almost all my work on it but not as good with email and documents 9
  • 10. Why Should We Consider Employees’ ComputingPreferences?  29% of American adults own a tablet device5  New hires are asking for mobile solutions and factoring into their employment decisions the types of devices and access allowed  When employees feel they have greater control over their work they tend to feel more committed to their organization  Employees are going to use their own devices whether you allow them to or not  It makes employees happy 10
  • 11. Considerations for Developing a Mobility Strategy Education is key to keeping employees focused, productive and safe Not all employees are candidates for specific organizational supplied devices There is significant value to a mobile work force for both the employee and the organization Number and type of devices has exceeded what any traditional IT department can support – extensive device support requires a BYOD strategy Cloud computing can help accelerate a mobile strategy and provide efficiencies when working with mobile (and multiple) devices People have been using their own devices for years – help them do it efficiently and securely 11
