Another Techie Show break-in during the keynote
The new trend is Free- range information workers. Using Hot-spots to work from anywhere. They are the new "spoiled brats of business"
Top 5 requests from these "spoiled brats":
1. I just want 1 identity and password for my desktop and PDA and everything else. How hard can that be?
2. I had sending e-mails and IM's and no one gets back to me. I want to know where everyone is at all times!
3. I'm tired of bringing every laptop I use to IT. Even the laptop I use on my unsecured AP at home that my son uses to download mp3's, etc.
4. Why can't my calendar, e-mail, contacts be synchronized with any device that I use. Automatically. Laptop, cell phone, PDA, Smartphone, Smart refrigerator, stupid coffee maker, etc.
5. Self service website
Standard Response from IT Pros.... NO!
Not any more.
