In order to support a growing number of mobile devices on your company’s network, you have to ensure that your network has the bandwidth to support all of these devices. Consider that for every laptop wirelessly or otherwise connected to your system, there is likely a personal smart phone that is also connected, as well as the potential for a personal tablet to connect as well. So there is the potential for 3 connected devices for every employee in the building. You can see how network concerns can become a problem, especially for companies that do a significant amount of business online. Private clouds can be a solution, but they are expensive to create and even more so to maintain. Public clouds are great also, but security can become an issue. A hybrid solution is often the best bet for companies.
