The workforce of the future: secure, smart, mobile and collaborative
ORLANDO, Florida – October 22, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, will present its vision for the new business experience with a showcase of user-inspired solutions that drive productivity, security, collaboration and mobility for an empowered workforce at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2012 in Orlando, Florida.
Samsung has leveraged its extensive consumer experience and deep understanding of how users interact with technology to develop a portfolio of intuitive, powerful and enterprise-ready solutions for business. Samsung’s smart devices – from multifunction printers, digital signage and virtualization solutions to mobile PCs, tablets and smart phones – are being deployed by not only large enterprises, but also government, educational institutions and in healthcare to improve mobility, enable collaboration and enhance customer experience.
“This is a critical moment for the evolution of technology for business – one that presents an opportunity for CIOs to innovate, generate revenue and really become a hero within their organization,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president of Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “Samsung’s business offering is focused on providing enterprise-ready solutions to enable smarter technology integrations that seize this opportunity for innovation and drive our customers’ success.”
Trends such as the consumerization of IT and the mobilization of the workplace highlight the demands of an increasingly on-the-go workforce, creating both new challenges and opportunities for the CIO. Devices like Samsung’s bestselling and SAFE™ (Samsung for Enterprise) Galaxy S® III show that user-friendly can also be business- and IT-friendly. Adding in Samsung’s rich ecosystem of laptops, tablets, accessories and software solution providers can help businesses create a collaborative and secure work environment that is not bound by an employee’s physical work location.
“With the Galaxy S III and the soon-to-be launched Galaxy Note® II, Samsung has highly desirable, feature-rich devices that are also IT Compliant for use in the workplace,” said Eric McCarty, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions, Samsung Telecommunications America. “These Samsung SAFE devices can help CIOs more efficiently enable a collaborative and secure mobile workforce.”
From October 22-25, Samsung will exhibit its latest IT, commercial display, mobile and software offerings at the event. Samsung’s booth (#15) is located at the Walt Disney World Dolphin’s Pacific Hall and comprises four zones: mobility, security, collaboration and efficiency. Visitors to the booth will be able to learn more about Samsung’s approach to business and enterprise innovation.
Additionally, Samsung leadership will be speaking about the latest trends and developments in the business world.
