Long gone are the days of one device for everything- email, social media, work applications, database and server access, conferencing (web and video), etc. In order to operate a mobile workforce and disparate office locations, corporate communications infrastructure has to adapt. Real time access to corporate systems, access to third-party applications, tools and collaboration software is of the utmost importance; navigating how employees will connect is a top priority for most IT departments.
