People are accustomed to using their beautifully-designed and easy-to-use productivity tools in their everyday life. As employees, they now have the same expectation for their work environment. Companies are allowing employees to use their own devices (BYOD) and adopt low-cost SaaS-based solutions to save IT substantial costs but this now renders concerns around security and compliance. The big opportunity is for startups who can couple simplicity, clean design, ease-of-use, and speed with enterprise-level security and compliance. These new products will benefit both the CIO and CMO in delivering a flawless experience for both the employee and the company.
