Sun CIO touts ERP consolidation, flex workers


We also have an "office hoteling" notion, meaning you reserve an office as you need one. We just sold our campus in Newark, [Calif.,] which had 4,000 employees. Some people will find permanent offices on other campuses, but more than 80 percent will go flex. Our employee surveys show that it is always the top or second-biggest reason why people continue to work at Sun. We've even received kudos for how this could help us prepare for something like the Avian flu pandemic or a natural disaster. We can now upgrade our VPN gateway in a matter of days so that everyone can work from home, if necessary.
