A New Era in Mobility
Increased need to support mobile computing is driving investment in wireless networks.
Conventional wisdom says that most companies don't quite know how to approach mobile computing. They know it's gotten very important very quickly and have taken some tentative steps to create a mobile presence, but they don't have a fully realized strategy for how to make the most of it. Mobile life is just beginning for most businesses.
As cited by ReadWriteBiz, Forrester Research report "How Mature is Your Mobile Strategy?" confirms this collective hunch. According to companies surveyed in the report, 45 percent of them are just starting to form a mobile strategy, while 12 percent have yet to begin. Companies point to mobility's indirect connection to generating revenue and the highly complex nature of mobile tech as barriers to adoption. The glut of devices and operating systems that run them muddies the decision-making waters considerably, and the inherent expense of mobile development has been prohibitive in these lean economic times.
