Technology is changing at an ever accelerating rate – that is something that’s clear to anyone with even the slightest awareness of the IT marketplace. What is not always so clear to IT Managers is that people’s expectations of the IT they use in the workspace is also changing and this is starting to influence the expectations of a changing workforce.
