Email has revolutionized the workplace, but it’s also gotten overwhelming .
Macy Summers, vice president of Advanced Development and Ventures at Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Solutions – Defense, said in Federal Computer Week‘s Technology Perspectives blog that “enterprise mobility” could help an organization be more productive.
“It’s all about scaling down,” said Summers. “Enterprise Mobility reduces email, reliance on laptops and reduces infrastructure costs.”
Employees can now connect through secure applications on their smartphones to relevant workgroups. Not only can they do this at any time, from any place – even after hours – but they can connect to people and information that they need through cloud computing, rather than email and work computers.
Summers cited a study in his post that said employees who use enterprise social media could lessen email traffic by as much as 28 percent.
“It’s the way of the future,” he added.
