The trends are only part of the growing list of options for federal workers to communicate with each other and stay on top of industry best practices--and on October 30, we will discuss the future of government meeting and communicating.

But these new capabilities put pressure on managers to tailor this new working environment to their mission and formulate an enterprise mobility strategy. How can they manage productivity when workers are communicating from home, and how can they secure their networks when workloads leave the building with the worker?
