Enterprise Forward    

Ready for Use-Any-Device?


The following is a summarized excerpt from the premiere issue of HP Enterprise Forward. In this article on new technologies and the changing workplace, HP Fellow Jim “Coop” Cooper explores mobility, the user-centric workplace, and its impact on IT.


“Bring your own device” is no longer a debate; it’s a fact of business. Today’s workers typically own two or more devices—desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone—and they want to choose which devices they use. This freewheeling workplace culture will be a boon to productivity. Workers are empowered to work anywhere, anytime, and perform any task in front of them.


But along with this transition, effective governance to monitor and manage employees, information, and equipment becomes crucial. IT must adapt. In the past, IT departments were integrators, control-centers deploying information policies and selected technologies within the enterprise. Today they must function as facilitators, deploying technologies and processes to users connected to the enterprise by the devices of their choice.


Protection of business data is critical. Those enterprises that can effectively negotiate the intersection between rigorous governance and decentralization will drive exponential growth in value. And generate significant competitive edge.
