If it is true that survival favors those with the greatest ability to adapt, then organizations need exceptional leadership in order to keep up with innovation in the cloud and mobile markets. Most enterprise organizations are not equipped to refresh every 12-18 months. However, the marketplace is changing and growing that quickly.

Efiia has been a thought leader in the mobile and cloud spaces well before buzzwords like “secure containers” or “app wrapping” littered the trade rags. Our focus continues to be exploring what is realistic in the next 12 months, not regurgitating what happened during the last 18 months.
