Meet Lerato, a Johannesburg-based sales rep. At home preparing for a customer visit, she opens her laptop to check e-mail and connect to her company's CRM system to make a few necessary updates. She lets the dog out, makes a cup of coffee, and before long realises she's already running late. She'll need to finish her CRM entry during the Uber ride using her mobile device.
Halfway across the country in Durban, Sam, an IT lead at the same company, is logging in at corporate head office. Managing mobile access and devices for over 500 employees, his job sometimes feels like a balancing act – making sure all the devices and data are secure, ensuring regulatory compliance, and providing employees with what they need, when they need it, wherever they are.
