sleep

Sleep is important. And yes, we’d still believe that even if it wasn’t Monday. Unfortunately for many people, however, the combination of high-speed internet access and mobile technology is cutting into nightly sleep schedules.

A lack of sleep means a higher likelihood of developing obesity, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases to name a few.

Last December, 3GPP—the organization that oversees global cellular standards—approved 5G New Radio (NR) as the world’s first mobile 5G spectrum. Since then, several network operators have taken massive steps toward making this technology viable on a global scale. So, what do these recent developments mean for your enterprise’s mobility effort? Never-Before-Seen Speeds If you thought today’s mobile technology was fast, buckle up.

Figuring Out Financial Services

August 1, 2018 by Matt Louden

The financial services industry is one of the United States’ largest—it spans nearly 500,000 organizations and more than six million full-time employees. However, despite this sector’s impressive size and healthy, year-over-year growth, finance firms aren’t getting more efficient. In fact, these companies haven’t noticeably improved productivity levels since 2001. Industry executives believe this stagnation is the product of organizations failing to evolve business models beyond traditional technologies. Without mobility-driven solutions and services, today’s financial services companies can’t keep up with rapidly changing consumer preferences. Since more than 40% of customers already rely on mobile endpoints for their financial needs, digital-focused enterprises and executives are pushing the industry to play catch-up. So, why should you and your organization pay attention to mobile technology? What are financial services’ most serious challenges and concerns? And, how can your team work to overcome them?…
