26-Oct-12 CIO UK

In Blog, Personal on October 26, 2012 at 5:59 am

Yesterday evening, I attended an excellent Consumerisation event that was run by CIO UK, sponsored by Samsung and attended by a number of high level IT folk across a number of different sectors.

Event was in Knightsbridge very close to the seasonal lights of Harrods!

The event was timed well, as it coincided with Microsoft’s global launch of their surface device, another entry in to what is now becoming a crowded arena of devices.

Although there was a lot of discussion (before, during and after the event) on the devices, whether that be a bring your own or a company provided one, we just cannot avoid the fact that applications and their simplicity of use (Drop box) are driving this trend.

With this in mind, the device is almost irrelevant, as this market of 4″, 7″ and 10″ wonders will continue to evolve over the coming years. We cannot overlook basic things like security, but now these are so much more of a given with any device.

What applications will survive? In my mind, it is those applications like social media and file sharing that are simple to use, but it will also be those who can provide these across a number of different devices using very sophisticated cloud services, which minimise mistakes and provide effective synchronisation.

These are indeed existing times!
