New workplace realities are challenging legacy assumptions about where, when and how work gets done. Location and access-device flexibility are more important than ever, while the ability to deliver productivity and security are no less essential. The public cloud is one option – but not when data sovereignty, privacy, performance or security considerations require apps and data to remain on premises.
