Speeds Access to Big Data through Mobile Devices
Mumbai, June 21, 2012 – IBM today introduced new software that helps employees tap into the broadest range of business information to do their jobs more effectively from their desktops, mobile phones and tablets.
The new offering called IBM Content Navigator, allows traditional and mobile workers to securely access, manage and gain insight from structured and unstructured content such as emails, documents, images, Web data and collaboration tools to improve productivity.
In IBM’s 2011 Global CIO Study of more than 3,000 CIOs, 75 percent of respondents identified mobility solutions as one of their top priorities.IBM is responding to these trends with IBM Content Navigator that gives employees access to a broad range of documents, records, images and other relevant content to do their jobs more effectively.
Built on open standards like HTML5 and CMIS, the new software provides a consistent user experience across a variety of mobile devices, operating systems and content sources, allowing employees across all lines of businesses to access, manage, contribute and share content any time, from any location. Whether they need to conduct everyday business while on the road or in a client’s office, IBM is arming them with the access to the right data, anytime, anywhere. For example, a human resources manager who is traveling to meet employees can now access a range of documents such as employee records, compensation, benefits and evaluations without the need for a PC.
“IBM is continuing to lead the way in helping organizations manage the content they rely upon for everyday operations,” said IBM Enterprise Content Management Leader Doug Hunt. Today we are enabling clients to make content available in any context to help them deal with the information sprawl of big data. “It’s key that clients can now drive business insights from enterprise content and share collaboration content with others who need it.”
In addition to the collaboration and mobile capabilities, the software has self-provisioning capability that allows departments such as sales, human resources, finance or legal to customize the solution for their specific business needs.
