Enabling the Mobile Workforce
Mobile knowledge workers currently account for more than 60% of the total workforce in Brazil, Germany, India and Japan and more than 70% of the total workforce in the United States.
Infotrends, January 2011
To empower mobile workers and simplify their usage of enterprise software, Magnolia 5 will not only be the first CMS with a user interface driven by touch, but will be built on a series of Apps. For instance, Magnolia supported Apps (pages, assets, documents, etc) will access, manage and display company data in a similar way that a CMS would be expected to do. However, Magnolia 5 could even be used to create your very own Apps and enable mobile workers to securely login to update customer details, access patient records or gather survey data, all in a user friendly, App-based interface. Magnolia 5 will open up your content like you never even imagined.
