Get Mobile from Shop Floor to Boardroom

Manufacturers today are faced with constant market pressure to remain lean, reduce the product development cycle and improve customer focus. Many companies have already realized that increased mobility, when managed effectively and securely, can empower employees to achieve such business goals.

As a result, IT is faced with the challenges of managing a variety of device types and policies, as well as supporting mobile versions of the apps on which the business runs.
