A recent report on changing trends of work place at global and India revealed that nearly 68 percent of respondents prefer mobile and flexible working methods. Mobility is normal at work place and most of the employers are happier to work on a mobile in a flexible way to make them more productive.

happy to work in a mobile work environment and remaining half of the respondents think that mobile working will increase productivity and it has been increasing in India to 55 percent as compared to other parts of the globe. But many business entrepreneurs are not happy and confident with mobile revolution as they thinking that it causes security threats. Nearly 31 percent of employers agreed that their employers encourage mobile working. It is also revealed that employers restricted the applications and data to access on their mobile phones. Organizations need to accelerate mobile adoption, because it is currently happening too slowly and too tactically in many businesses. The current situation where employees are taking it upon themselves to go mobile is simply not tenable and insecure, says strategy manager of IT biggie. To make success of this initiative it is must to have top management support and a strong partnership with IT to get access the secured data by mobile workers.
