This document contains SMB mobile worker installed base actuals for 2014 and a forecast for 2015–2020."Mobility has quickly become an indispensable requirement for business of any size seeking to ensure an efficient operating structure.

In other words, a mature mobilized workforce will be the main driver for competitive advantage." — Chris Chute, vice president, Global SMB Cloud and Mobility Practice
