The modern enterprise is many things: a matrix structure, globalized, driven by distributed and virtual teams, and often needs to be highly engaged with communities. That means organizations have to be more networked and collaborative than ever. Mobile technologies like the BlackBerry solution are helping to develop new and more flexible ways of working and communicating. Come and hear how mobility can help ideas develop and coalesce to drive competitive advantage. Understand the ways the BlackBerry solution can reduce IT risks such as IP leakage, data disintermediation, confusion, and sourcing key people. The modern enterprise is in a state of constant flux – mobile technology is giving it the power to change.
