Enterprise mobile apps…what’s in store for the future?

Now more than ever, enterprises are feeling the push to scrap their legacy data systems in lieu of a mobile, cloud-based futureof.jpgstorage system.

These trends will alter the way employees perform their duties, where data and apps are stored, and how productivity and collaboration are measured.
