The workplace of the future at HP Discover 2013

discover13_LithiumCommunities_banner_205x150.pngAccording to recent research, IT no longer sees 50 percent of the workforce using three or more devices for work. As we embrace the New Style of IT, consolidation of devices will be critical. In fact, IT has become “consumerized” to the point where 4.5 billion personal client devices will be on the network in 2015 and 70 percent of CIOs cited mobile technologies as the most disruptive.


Analysts are predicting that the days of work/life balance are over, as organizations strive to keep up with an always on/always productive workforce. At HP Discover 2013, in Barcelona you’ll find a breakout session devoted to new solutions that enable the successful blending of work and life. 

Integrate the business of IT to combat its consumerization

"More than ever before, we [IT] face real competition. Cloud providers market directly to our business partners who are savvier than ever about technology. As a result, our business partners expect to order services at a published price over the web." quotes ZDNet Blogger Joe McKendrick from a book published by a non-profit group of Fortune 500 leaders dedicated to helping CIOs "run IT as a business." McKendrick goes on to share the recommendations made by this group for IT to stay competitive with the Saasy and cloudy types. However, it is not enough to just be competitive. IT needs to have a healthy co-existence with the "Saasy and Cloudy R Us" companies and change the IT DNA to drive co-opetition while being competitive. This is vital to addressing the challenges posed by the split-second availability of IT services to business users today.
