Being at conferences is always inspiring to me. This week I’ve been to Zurich to speak about IT Workspaces in the future. In preparation of the speech I have found a great visual from Gartner which describes best the changes and forces in the mobile and endpoint computing market of the past, today and in the future:

The visualization shows perfectly the increasing complexity of IT environments, especially when IT organizations are living in an IT-controlled world. The biggest challenge for them is to become a service provider and broker in an mixed environment of personal data and apps. This transformation requires a shift in the architecture, infrastructure and services of an IT organization. Exciting times and challenges :)!
