One More New Way to Take Your Business Mobile

August 9, 2010  

In less than five years, more than 50 percent of users at any given time will be accessing the Internet from a mobile device, according to Morgan Stanley. Frankly, it feels like that number is already being reached in the business world.

After all, Internet-ready mobile devices are ubiquitous, and the still-new iPad has topped 3 million sales. That's a lot of thumb-and-finger tapping!

What's really cool about our new mobile reality is that it offers great ways to work that don't involve lugging a heavy laptop around!


Case in point: Giving presentations and sharing videos on iPad is impressive, but did you know you can paper-push on one, too?

    This is absolutely a great application, and when used in conjunction desktop sharing/remote access software like TeamViewer or LogMeIn, can really leverage the power of mobile internet by giving you access to all your resources, hardware and software, from anywhere with access to reasonable bandwidth.

    Your opening paragraph states that "In less than five years, more than 50 percent of users at any given time will be accessing the Internet from a mobile device, according to Morgan Stanley. Frankly, it feels like that number is already being reached in the business world." I would be interested to hear the comments of your esteemed audience as to whether all Internet sites should now be designed with a mobile audience in mind. Does this mean eliminating technologies such as Adobe Flash? And what layout is generally considered to be the best for this environment?

    @ Brendan T - I think this is a front-running question in the minds of many, and should certainly be on the minds of developers of all types of user media. I think an important corollary to your question is how much distance will remain between the upcoming mobile platforms, and the traditional platforms of PC etc. for accessing information online. As the mobile devices become more and more capable of handling content in parallel with their larger cousins, the issue of developing "for mobile" may become less necessitous. As to which technologies "make the cut" and what technologies will spring forth as a result of this shift in mode, is an area of great speculation, and one which thus far has been driven by Hardware Manufacturers, Software Developers, App Developers, and consumer demand. Where the eye of this perfect storm lies, is still up for debate.
