A wireless, mobile workplace is not longer a nice-to-have workplace option—it's go mobile or die. So say two recent studies from Aruba Networks, which also found that companies are falling far short of where their leadership and employees want to be when it comes to mobility. Aruba conducted two surveys, one of 1,000 global IT professionals to understand how they are managing what it calls GenMobile employees, and another to see what the workplace will be like in the near future. The studies found, in the words of an Aruba statement, "that the creation of an agile, all-wireless workplace is no longer an option, but a requirement." The studies also found that businesses are not succeeding in meeting their employees and leadership's demands for a mobile future. Seventy percent of IT professionals are facing increasing pressure from top executives to create an all-wireless workplace, but only 14% of employees say that they now have that kind of workplace, according to the findings. The benefits of all-wireless, mobile workplaces are clear, according to the survey: increased productivity, cost savings, and increased employee retention. But wanting such a workplace is one thing, and delivering it another thing entirely. There's a disconnect between what top executives want, and what is actually happening in their businesses.
