The Modern Workforce: Supporting productivity’s platforms – mobile, cloud and BYOD
Would you consider your IT department to be a “fast-mover?” In this day and age, IT departments are challenged with quickly meeting the technology and performance needs of a new millennial-driven workforce. We wanted to know just how large the gap truly is between worker expectations and IT requirements. We wanted to understand what “fast-moving” IT decision-makers are doing to close that gap and better align people and technologies. So, in order to dig a little deeper, we teamed up with GigaOm Research to learn more about the habits and preferences of the modern workforce (workers ages 18-34) and IT professionals. After surveying more than 1,200 workers and 600 IT decision-makers, we pulled together the first of three whitepapers aimed at helping technology decision-makers better understand the growing needs of this new workforce. The whitepaper describes how IT can answer the call during a current climate of rapid change in communication and collaboration technology. Here’s a snapshot of what we found in part 1 of 3 of our series “The Modern Workforce.” For the whole story, download the first whitepaper (for free) here.
