Mobile tablets and the cloud

Posted on June 9, 2012


This post was inspired by a recent post by Benjamin Robbins. He is using a smartphone as his only computing device. The post on connectivity presents one of the last problems individuals have to solve to get rid of  the desktop computer and use mobile.

Organizations with IT departments have to embrace BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) or probably go away. “This is a unique time for the enterprise, as two major technology trends – the cloud and mobile tablets – are intersecting to create a significant opportunity for change in enterprise computing.

The tablet is the perfect window into cloud services: shifting computing from a single device to multiple devices; from local storage of content to the cloud; and eventually from native apps to greater use of Web apps. The cloud enables device independent computing, accessing content from anywhere, which will drive users to the device of their choice – which will increasingly be a mobile tablet.”

Read this report summary and see where business both large and small are going with the tablet and the cloud.
