Cloud and Mobility: A Match Made in Heaven?
(Cision (English) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) IT Connection Blog by Kitty Weldon Summary Bullets:
· The convergence of the ‘cloud’ and mobility is a trend that vendors, service providers, and analysts have been predicting for years (and 2013 is no exception). · However, ‘cloud’ means so many things in so many markets that some of this convergence has already happened under other names.
The promise of mobility has long included ‘anywhere, anytime’ access to public and corporate information and collaboration resources. Adding cloud-based delivery (to smartphones and tablets) of the applications to leverage these resources seemingly enhances this proposition, lowering investment costs and increasing flexibility.
