Enabling a Flexible Workplace

In our hyperconnected world, employees expect to work from anywhere … at any time … with any device. Each of these new access points, however, increases the IT security perimeter. In the flexible workplace, how can organizations balance the prom-ise of greater productivity that increased access provides with the security concerns increased access creates? And how can they do it without wreaking havoc with the budget? The new, more accessible workplace needs to be, in a word, manageable.

How IBM is making organization flexible

The most effective flexible workplaces provide mobile and remote staff with the tools they need to do their job more effectively. IBM believes that intelligent provisioning of these tools can actually reduce your company's overall costs while helping employees capture new business opportunities.
