Enriching Experiences
The power to engage everyone on
their terms and devices, offering
instant access to the information they
need.
WHAT IS “MOBILE”?
Why is MOBILITY Important?
Mobility is important for individuals because
ACCESS and ENGAGEMENT
anywhere anytime is the expectation.
We see this demonstrated in social networking, to
banking, from work to education, airlines, and
everywhere in-between.
Individuals want information and want to contribute
information at a moment’s notice.
22
Within one year, some 45% of U.S. higher education students will
own and access the Internet from handheld devices.
