This is the third post in a blog series featuring Vine-format videos focusing on the “Six Essential Steps for Unleashing the Power of Enterprise Mobility”. Be sure to read the first two blogs and watch the videos – First Step to Enterprise Mobility: Build the Mobile Structure and Second Step to Enterprise Mobility: Go Virtual.
In this blog series, we’ve discussed two important steps enterprises can take unleash the power of enterprise mobility. We’ve covered how building a mobile structure can arm enterprises with the appropriate architecture to increase efficiency and revenue. In addition, we highlighted how enterprises can go virtual by implementing desktop virtualization.
Our third step – preparing for the division of devices – relies on both structure and a mobile workforce. How can enterprises enable and support the proliferation of employee-owned devices without burying their IT department and putting corporate data at risk? Here’s a quick checklist to help make it happen:
1. Use a unified network infrastructure that facilitates secure, virtual workspace delivery across wired, wireless, VPN, and cellular networks.
As wireless access becomes more pervasive, performance and reliability expectations are the same as what is expected from a wired network. Features such as reliable connectivity, application response times and voice, video and real-time collaboration solutions all depend on a seamless delivery for both wired and wireless devices. This fundamental shift demands that IT monitor and have a unified solution in place (i.e. a single physical infrastructure) for both corporate wireless LAN (WLAN) and wired LAN. This converged infrastructure will enable the right quality of experience for users, independent of their devices.
A unified network infrastructure can also make sure that IT is able to identify each device connecting to the network and authenticate the person using it.

This is the second post in our “Six Essential Steps for Unleashing the Power of Enterprise Mobility” blog series featuring Vine-format videos. To read the first blog and watch the video describing how enterprises can build a mobile structure, click here.
I’m excited to discuss the second step enterprises can take to enable more efficient ways of working in today’s mobile world. It may seem basic, but with more mobile workers than ever before and more mobile devices per user, enterprises can enable greater mobility by revolutionizing the workspace. This revolution isn’t about new cubicles and chairs – it’s about going virtual.
Virtual workspaces are not only efficient, but this next-generation workspace has the potential to build a complex, talent-based competitive advantage. Here are some key steps to consider when going virtual: Read More »
