It’s a cold Sunday evening… I am sitting by the fire planning the week ahead… balancing and juggling work/life commitments… and reflecting on how the office is no longer a place I go to work.
I need to be able to work from anywhere, at any time, and I want to use a mobile device to do this.
And I can.
My digital workplace is my mobile intranet.
