Today, we're seeing a role reversal where communication methods used in our personal life is pushing changes in our work.
While many organizations have not harnessed the full power or the potential of advanced communications, employees are already jumping ahead and asking, what's next? And, why can't I use my smart device for work? As a result, they are driving the new PC Era where the "C" is something entirely new!

It then discusses the transformation agents that are shaping the enterprise network’s future, the effect of BYOD on the transformation, and the need for an application fluent network.
