Information technology professionals expect the number of personal smart phones and tablets accessing their networks to more than double in the next two years, according to a recent survey by CDW. Looking ahead, nine out of 10 IT professionals expect the growth of personal mobile devices to present a broad set of challenges and have major impacts on their organizations’ networks including:
– Increased bandwidth requirements (63%)
– Increased server requirements (44%)
– Increased network latency (39%)
– Increased storage requirements (37%)
Core messaging applications (email, text, voicemail) are the most important end user functions to be supported, the study concluded. Accessing organizational data was viewed as key by about 47 percent of survey participants, illustrating the importance of content consumption from mobile devices.
