Google Chrome Enterprise
THE WORKFORCE HAS EVOLVED; INTRODUCING THE CLOUD WORKER.
The world of enterprise technology is constantly evolving, propelling cultural and technological change in organizations of all shapes and sizes. SaaS adoption is a prime example of this trend: Over the past two years, the median number of apps across enterprise customers has grown 24% from 2015 to 2017 (OKTA, 2018).
This rise in SaaS adoption has brought with it a new breed of worker – the Cloud Worker – free from the constraints of a physical device, these workers operate in a world where their workspace is in the cloud and can be accessed anywhere, on any device: Cloud Workers spend on average 4.6 hours of work time in a web browser (Forrester, 2018).
