    Mobile Computing Technologies: an Overview

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Today we live in a fast-paced world. You may be behind your desk in Chicago today and in a business meeting in Tokyo tomorrow. Itís a simple truth that work doesnít stop while youíre away. Often, you need to bring your work with you. Whether youíre a commuting business man or a field technician for a local business, you need to maintain productivity wherever you are.

    But the need for mobile computing doesnít end there.  Perhaps you have a business that operates a delivery service.  You made sure to print out your driving directions before leaving the office, but halfway to your destination you run into construction.  What now?

    "Mobile computing" is a generic term that refers to technologies that allow you to take your computer with you.  In the past, this was limited to notebook computers and similar hardware that allowed you to physically bring your computer along.  Today, however, this can be extended to software and web solutions that allow you to bring your computing experience without the bulky hardware.

    Today I am going to touch on several different mobility technologies and offer some possibilities for their use.  Itís an ever-changing world out there.  Your competitors are already using these technologies.  Were you left behind?

    There are three basic genres of mobile computing.  The first uses mobile computers.  These are computers or similar devices that are designed for mobile use.  They include notebooks, PDAs, and mobile phones.  The second genre is remote connection.  This type of mobility allows you to connect to your computer from remote locations and work as though you were sitting in front of it.  The final type of technology is known as Desktop Virtualization.  With this technology you take your software with you and recreate your computing experience on any available hardware.
