According to new research, the widespread adoption of Tablet PCs is boosting the cloud computing industry.
In its report called Are Tablets Set for Enterprise Primetime, Strategy Analytics revealed that portable computers are now a top choice for businesses because of their increasing power, range and availability.
The firm claims that dual-core tablets have set a mini-revolution in motion and this in turn could be driving the uptake of cloud computing.
Andrew Brown, director at Strategy Analytics and author of the new report, told Fresh Business Thinking: "Trends that include Bring Your Own Device are evolving from an experimental phase to enterprise 'norm', as smartphones and tablets move into the workplace, each with their own mobile application environment."
He added that a tandem development in the world of business IT was the adoption of server and desktop virtualisation, which is allowing firms to bolster their "communication, collaboration and interaction".
