Typically, management functions are the last items added to emerging technologies. Cloud services have become quite popular among small and medium businesses, but they have lacked the management features found with premise applications. So, one of the industryï¿¼s leading suppliers is trying to change that.
Cloud Computing has been a popular option in the software arena. Companies can offload some of the responsibilities for managing their applications to third parties, ideally reducing their IT costs. Now, one vendor is attempting to push that concept into the wireless LAN marketplace.
Many small and medium businesses do not have the staff, the expertise, or the desire to manage a wide range of different end user systems. Citrix has been a popular choice in this market segment because its products centrally control a wide variety of desktops. The vendor tried to solidify its position by making application downloading simpler and adding support for Appleï¿¼s iPhone.
Mobility has become a watchword in small and medium businesses as executives now spend much of their day away from the corporate office. Cloud computing has become a popular way of delivering various types of IT services. Consequently, one of the industryï¿¼s leading smartphone vendors has teamed up with one of the marketï¿¼s top service providers to deliver cloud based, mobility services.
