Explore and dive into mobility solutions
Over the last couple of years, demand for mobile and remote work solutions has been growing. This demand is being accelerated by various factors: on one hand, the technology for allowing this is commoditizing (e.g. smartphones, tablet PCs, ubiquitous Wi-Fi access); on the other hand, people are growing more and more accustomed to mobile applications, allowing them to be 'online' any time, anywhere (e.g. social media applications such as Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare, etc.); finally, as traffic density and the associated economic and social impact are continuously growing, telecommuting is becoming the norm in many organizations.
As an independent software vendor (ISV), how easy is it for your customers to accommodate remote and mobile work scenarios using your application? Does it require significant network or hardware investments (e.g. VPN infrastructure)? Does the application need a network connection all the time or do you support offline scenarios? Can you take advantage of new device form factors and user experiences, such as smartphones, tables PCs and multi-touch?
