Will 2014 be the year of “Mobile Only”?
Will we be able to drop useless and heavy laptops? Will we be able to fully function using only our smart phones and tablet for work and personal purposes? What does it really take to achieve this level of freedom? Docking stations for screens and keyboards? Or software packages for editing slide based presentations and spreadsheets?
I work for SAP. They support me with all kinds of mobile applications: one for recording travel expenses, one for recording my time-sheet, mobile CRM and even workspaces for collaborative team work, document sharing and video conferencing. So why am I not a Mobile Only pioneer? Maybe it is just a shift of attitude that’s required? A more innovative and more courageous frame of mind?
Why do companies not want to save money by imposing a Mobile Only policy? Why are companies supporting three computing devices for each employee, if one will do the job?
I would like to support any initiative of living out a Mobile Only approach by collecting and sharing useful experiences, daily challenges and related work. I would like to co-create and share knowledge and useful links to software and hardware accessories that support our journey towards an inevitable future Mobile Only!
