Smartphones and tablets appear to be having more real-world impact on IT departments than even cloud computing, based on early returns on a survey TechRepublic.com is conducting.
“We realize that these two topics are actually related in some cases,” writes TechRepublic Editor-in-Chief Jason Hiner in a recent post. “Companies are often attracted to the cloud so that employees can access apps and/or data from anywhere and any device, including mobile devices. And, professionals who rely on smartphones or tablets to do their work want easy ways to connect to corporate systems, and the cloud can simplify the process. That said, we’d like to know which one is the tail and which one is the dog.”
Current results from the blog’s heavily IT readership put Mobile in the lead with 72% compared to 28% for cloud computing.
