Mobile users will constitute 73 percent of the U.S. work force in 2011, according to Forrester Research.
IDC estimates that 70 percent of enterprise data resides on mobile devices. Today’s advanced devices have the processing power and storage capacity to enable access to mission-critical applications.
Mobility is moving rapidly into the enterprise — and creating new challenges in the process. It adds an extra load on the network, introduces a new breed of security risks, and increases IT complexity and management overhead. Gartner estimates that 20 percent of an enterprise’s total IT budget is related to mobility costs. Organizations need expert guidance to rein in those costs while keeping pace with the onslaught of mobile devices.
These mobile devices now connected to the enterprise network also need to be managed and secured. In addition, users are requesting access to enterprise desktops, applications and data on these devices. As a result, Sigma views mobility as a trinity of Desktop Virtualization, Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Wireless and offers extensive expertise across all three areas.
