No, I am not thinking a hot cup of coffee here! Well maybe that too, but more importantly, these are some of the most common venues today from where the modern work force is expected to operate and be productive. Be it an on-the-go sales guy accessing a SharePoint/CRM application, a remote DevOps Engineer working on Azure cloud, an overseas manufacturing engineer downloading Auto-CAD design files, a CIO downloading a business intelligence report from an ERP application, or an employee burning the midnight oil at his home, there are myriads of such examples proving that today’s enterprises have an ever-increasing mobile appetite.
While mobility is a business imperative for enterprises, it does present a huge challenge for enterprise IT. Can they ensure the same application performance levels for their remote workers as their colleagues working in headquarters and branch offices? Particularly since remote workers can find themselves at locations that are highly bandwidth and latency challenged, and with no access to the sophisticated IT tools that are usually available within enterprise facilities. This is exactly where the Riverbed SteelHead Mobile solution can come to your rescue.
