iCluster and Mobility Part 1
How important is mobility in our everyday lives? It turns out mobility is very important. Did you know that according to data from digital analysts at GSMA Intelligence there are now more active mobile devices in the world (7.22 billion) than people (7.1 billion)? Of course cell phones make up a vast proportion of these devices, and most cellphone users are so connected to their devices that 1 in 3 mobile users would rather give up sex than their cell phone! There is even a phobia that addresses the fear of losing or being without a cell called Nomophobia, and over 44% of Americans suffer from this disease.
By 2017 over half of all companies will require employees to use their own mobile devices for work. So it is becoming more and more likely that when there is an IT issue at work, companies will expect you to fix it whenever it occurs (7X24) and to do it using your own device. In most cases the one device that you always have on you is your cell phone.
At iCluster 7.1 TR2 Rocket introduced the Mobile Monitor – an HTML5 web browser based interface that allows you monitor and perform operations on your iCluster configuration from that permanently attached cell phone (or laptop or tablet).
In our next post we will cover what you need to do to get started using the mobile monitor.
