As move to mobile grows, federal workforce adapts to new normal

The mobile revolution isn't new to many agencies. Laptops and BlackBerrys have been standard issue for many government executives for the last decade.

The challenge, like any new technology, is ensuring these devices actually help meet mission goals and don't become just another shiny toy.
