With all the hype surrounding mobility these days, it’s hard to get a clear picture of what’s going on and how it relates to vendors. The State of Mobility Report from Symantec helps cut through the hype to identify industry trends and highlight needs that can help us better pursue mobile initiatives with our customers.

We have a lot of customers who are beginning to develop their mobile strategies and find themselves faced with challenging questions. What is ultimately driving mobile technology adoption? Some organizations are responding to pressure from their employees, while others are primarily concerned with the vast amount of potential business benefits mobile technology brings. It was helpful for us to see (included as part of the report findings) that ‘innovators’ versus ‘...

A few weeks ago, the Symantec Partner Communication team launched its first ever Google+ Hangout, “Cut the FUD—Debunking Common Misconceptions About Backup Exec” with the Symantec Backup Exec team. The result: an engaging 40-minute discussion for our partners on Backup Exec with in-house experts who dispelled common product-related misunderstandings.

Why did we do a Google+ Hangout? We wanted to...
