Abstract:

"True employee mobility - creation of a virtual workplace wherever we happen to be - may signal the biggest change in working practices since the Industrial Revolution. Organizations are already seeing benefits from instantly distributing information when, where and to whom it is needed. A few are restructuring more fundamentally, embedding knowledge directly into new streamlined business processes. Telecommunications providers are also investing heavily behind the scenes to secure and personalise the huge volumes of content available wirelessly to a workforce on the move."--Back cover.
