If you look back over the past three decades, you’ll see that we have increased our ability to collaborate and stay productive from anywhere, at any time, starting in 1983, with the advent of the first commercial available mobile phone in the United States.

It’s an important set of calculations, and one that increasingly leads companies to make the jump to the cloud.
