The year 2016 is set to be a big one for the enterprise. Change will be resisted, of course, but mobile and cloud computing are unstoppable and will drive a new IT mindset.

As a result, we should expect that CIOs will be forced to adopt a more agile approach towards information security, policy design, technology evaluation, and lifecycle management.

Enterprise Conflict between Desktop and Mobile

A conflict between traditional desktop computing and mobile computing is developing. Mobile has already made significant inroads into the enterprise but it is set to become even more pervasive.

The catalyst for this will be Microsoft's Windows10, which has a new architecture for security and applications that is modeled after that of mobile computing. This new model has the promise of greater security, lower operational costs, and increased agility, all very attractive characteristics for a CIO.
