HP Drives "Business-First" Approach to Mobility

“Mobile devices are changing how we live and work. They also pose significant challenges to IT departments who have to support their now mobile workforces while keeping corporate data managed and secure. HP is the world’s largest commercial computing provider to the world’s largest companies.   No other company is better suited to address commercial mobility than HP. Our devices feature built-in security, manageability, and durability. When paired with our ISVs’ robust solutions, HP has created an ecosystem that help’s companies powerfully and securely harness the promise of mobility.

“Mobility will be a paradigm shift on the same order of magnitude as the industry’s move from mainframes to client/server, and client/server to Internet. Mobility for businesses isn’t just a device plus an app or adopting BYOD scenarios; it’s about organizations using purpose-built devices and industry-specific solutions that have the power to transform both the workplace and business workflows.”
