The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers. For midsize firms around the world, those with 100–999 employees, mobile resources play a key role in improving workplace productivity as well as allowing greater flexibility in how and where work is done. New collaboration resources also allow staff in different locations to work together as efficiently and effectively as staff in the same office. The challenge for IT management is how best to coordinate the different collaborative and mobile resources and provide secure management of mobile devices and collaboration tools while enhancing workforce agility and productivity.

This IDC Technology Spotlight paper takes a look at why Email remains the primary mode of communication in business today. While there is prevalent speculation that social software and other real-time communications applications will replace email, email nevertheless remains a stalwart in business operations. In addition, as relationships across all business communication channels continue to be redefined, innovative modes and methods of communication are emerging. As a result, locating the right data and information at the right time — while still critical — becomes increasingly complex. IDC expects that organizations will use social software, such as Notes and Domino 9x Social Edition, to complement existing tools and address these business needs for the foreseeable future.
