Has your dongle left you dangling or your VPN = Very Poor Network? Time to move to real Mobile computing…
Posted by Dawn Aldwinckle on February 11th, 2011
You need to access your ERP system from home, at a customer site, from a Board Meeting or on the road as a matter of urgency and you can’t connect to the office as the VPN is down or your dongle has no bars! An ever-increasing business population is sharing your frustration.
One of (leading IT analysts) Gartner’s top predictions:
“90 percent of organizations will support business applications on personal mobile devices. The trend is already under way and will only increase rapidly until 2014.”
“Under way” is the key phrase, particularly for the UK, as mobile applications are just starting to be released and gain some traction.

The iPad is a fantastic on-the-go device that balances both laptop and iPhone functionalities. It is a portable solution with better data storage and flexibility than the iPhone, making it ideal for business users who require access to information on the go.
