With the ability to search files easily, know which files are being shared and with whom, and identify files that may violate policies related to content, file age, etc., the mobile workforce becomes a well-informed information custodian. They are better able to help the enterprise manage the information throughout its lifecycle. • Continuous information protection: Automatically and continuously back up data in real time with a lightweight, non-intrusive solution that makes recovery simple. Data can be lost, deleted, or become corrupted, whereas devices can crash, be retired, refreshed, or replaced. Mobile workforces want a solution that assures their data is continuously protected and readily accessible with easy, instant, and granular access. What is Mobile Information Management? Mobile Information Management builds on the basic concept of information management—the collection and management of information from one or more sources and the distribution of that information to one or more audiences. But it also refines the definition into more concrete terms regarding what is required to manage the increasing volumes and forms of data that is both mobile as well as that resides outside of the traditional boundaries of the data center. Hewlett Packard Enterprise was the first to recognize the need to formally define Mobile Information Management as a new industry category and deliver an integrated solution that addresses the enterprise requirements as well as the wants of the mobile workforce. Balancing each stakeholders needs, it reduces barriers to adoption and facilitates a managed and controlled approach to information handling—without compromising the productivity of the mobile workforce. Summary With unabated data growth comes the responsibility to shift from file-based to information-based management. Only then will organizations and mobile workforces be empowered with the visibility and control over the information flowing within and outside the data center. Only then can both parties determine and unlock the full value of mobile information. The next white paper, in this three-part series, discusses specific challenges of and best practices for managing mobile information—to balance and address the requirements of the enterprise as well as the expectations of the mobile workforce.
