The reign of the personal computer as the main element of access to technology seems to be moving more quickly to its end. According to the research, the phenomenon of consumerization, the virtualization and the emergence of mobile devices should condemn the traditional PC environments and materialize the platform through smartphones and in particular the personal cloud.
The personal cloud should support the emergence of a new level of flexibility associated with devices used for daily activities, taking advantage of the strengths of each terminal. Ultimately it will allow new levels of user satisfaction and productivity in the workplace. Major trends in computing have put the PC into focus and it now takes a broader perspective that includes smartphones, tablets and other consumer devices.
The new personal services of cloud hosting solutions will become the link between the devices used by consumers in different moments of their lives. But this is not a simple process, for various reasons, the survey indicates. Many trends have created a new paradigm that companies must adapt and that will also greatly benefit consumers. Among the causes, the first and most obvious, is the computerization. Users today know better technology than previous generations.
On the other hand, modern consumers also have different expectations, driven largely by the media and the Internet, social networks and new mobile devices. Moreover, from the democratization of technology, users of all types can now have sophisticated technologies within reach. The research indicates that some technologies such as virtualization improved flexibility and made more options available to companies in the adoption of mobile environments to internal customers.
Virtualization also provides a way to move legacy applications from the PC to a new emerging world. A third trend that favors the development of personal clouds in relation to the traditional PC is called “app-fixing.” In it, users observe carefully how applications are designed, provided and consumed or used. And this will inevitably have a dramatic impact on all other aspects of the market. These changes will change the way applications are designed and implemented in business environments.
Self service and mobility services in cloud computing open a new world of opportunities. Each user can now have an expandable and almost infinite number of resources available. Impacts on infrastructure are impressive. But when applied to people, it brings some specific advantages even more surprising. Digital activities of IT users are more self-directed than ever.
Users seeking to take their own decisions about the applications, services and content, based on an online offering is almost unlimited. This promotes a culture of self-service that users expect to have in all aspects of their digital experience, including the business environment. Finally, the mobility is the real catalyst for this new paradigm.
Today, mobile devices combined with cloud computing solutions can perform most of the computing tasks. At the same time, they provide a degree of comfort and flexibility that is only possible with mobile terminals. The appearance of more interfaces make these devices more practical. Thus, according to researcher, users can take advantage of resources for detecting and reading touching, gestures, contextual knowledge and speech recognition.
