According to Paul Roberts, Citrix enterprise mobility senior product specialist, the shift towards cloud computing and mobility are indelibly linked, with the shift towards the cloud already well underway – and the goal of mobility to get apps and data to people and devices.
“There’s a few businesses that are actually in the cloud, but most organisations are still based on traditional client/server applications. But there’s a shift happening,” said Roberts, who was speaking at the recent Computing Enterprise Mobility Summit.
Even banking groups are now looking upon the IT hardware that they need to support vast swathes of their business as a hindrance, he added, which they would rather offloaded to Amazon, Rackspace, Microsoft or other providers of cloud computing services – in particular, for non-core activities such as storing marketing and other materials.
