Disruptive IT Trends1 minute readAug 29th, 2011

Over the past few years, we have seen the consumerization of IT take over the corporate boardroom. Many realized the consumer technologies used at home were stronger, faster and more capable than those currently being used at work. Now, organizations around the world must adapt to consumer-focused technologies for a more productive, innovative work environment.

With a little push from the former Federal CIO Vivek Kundra, government agencies are taking cues from private sector. In a new blog series, Unisys will explore the future of consumerization in government, the challenges this developing trend presents for federal IT managers and best practices for implementing a secure, manageable mobile IT strategy. (Reference Venkatapathi Puvvada’s post on Consumerization and Government – What Does It All Mean?)
