In this three-part video series, featuring Paul Brannen, Executive Vice President of Mobile Solutions for Samsung Electronics, mobility – the adoption of personal devices in the workplace — is explored together with the resultant impacts on both productivity and security; key benefits are identified; and perspectives on what the future holds are shared.

From simple productivity gains, to significant strides in collaboration, companies are experiencing higher levels of employee engagement, faster and better customer service, and gaining efficiencies across the board. Not without its challenges, the adoption of mobility has meant rethinking the traditional modus operandi of IT departments which was founded on control to all- encompassing byod, open environments with IT shifting its focus from control of devices to security of data. Managing security, mitigating risks, and empowering employees with byod now go hand-in-hand requiring new approaches and fresh thinking.

And, from phones to smart devices, the industry continues to respond with a plethora of applications—intuitive, reliable, customizable, and easy to use—which provide even better customer experiences, and which, in turn, continue to drive productivity, collaboration, efficiencies and to re-shape the nature of work, how and what can be done, when, and where. For IT, this provides the opportunity to put the right metrics in place, to measure and manage security effectively, and to strategically address mobility and byod to prepare for the future.
