Mobile Computing Reaches Critical Mass in the Workplace

As mobile computing becomes a mainstream part of business culture, IT spending on related projects has increased dramatically, according to the findings of a global survey conducted by Aruba Networks of 964 IT professionals. Mobile computing clearly has a role, not just for remote workers, but also in the traditional workplace. That means that for solution providers in the channel, the mobile computing opportunity now goes well beyond the device, given that spending on both WiFi networks and security have gone way up. The survey also makes it apparent that with everyone inside and out of IT recognizing the business value of mobile computing, the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenon is here to stay, and businesses are increasingly aware of its benefits and its challenges. While the channel has always found it challenging to be an innate part of the mobile-computing device purchasing process, enough critical mass has been attained that the downstream opportunities mobile computing creates for the channel are too compelling to ignore. Here's a look at key takeaways from the study.
