Computing devices are in a continuous state of flux as usage patterns evolve, fueling the convergence of form factors and features, and augmenting capabilities. Consumers are increasingly adopting mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones over traditional PCs for various tasks and usage scenarios, and they are becoming the dominant devices in many users' minds. Businesses are adapting to the changes in usage patterns around mobile devices and the proliferation of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trends while simultaneously seeking ways to improve security, application management and software integration, and to support a plethora of device types and operating systems. Savvy device vendors and major ecosystem players adapt their business models to solidify leadership positions that define and evolve with market movements, resulting in profitable growth, while companies that are slow to react will lag behind the competition.
