Ultra Mobile Discover the right mobile device for your organization 1van der Meulen, R., Rivera, J. (2014). Gartner Forecast: PCs, Ultramobiles and Mobile Phones, Worldwide, 2010-2017, 4Q13 Update. Retrieved from http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/2791017. An ultrabook has all the power of a laptop with a fraction of the bulk and increased battery efficiency. Organizations need the right tools to keep up with everyday tasks In today’s workforce there is a communal reality in terms of how employee’s use technology in all its various forms. More than ever, they seem to find themselves being wirelessly tethered to a mass of no less than 3 computing devices at any time. An observer can watch as people check emails, texts, and schedules on smartphones and then jump into seemingly urgent calls, while simultaneously pulling out their favorite tablet to continue consuming content without missing a beat, reaching back into their bag to pull out a laptop to begin rapidly typing away. Smartphone held between shoulder and ear, tablet balanced on one knee, and notebook balanced on the other. No wonder so many need yoga or chiropractic services to make it through the week. Something will eventually have to give. The problem seems simple enough; consuming and producing information and content continuously throughout the day no matter where they happen to be is a fact of life for today’s professional, and each of their mobile devices both excel and fail in these efforts in various ways. So will it ever be possible to get back to carrying a single multi-purpose device that’s both capable and effective in delivering the experience and features they need? Will there ever be a simpler, less painful path? It may come as little surprise that laptop sales have undeniably been in a decline for the last few years, but perhaps we should not yet hammer in the coffin nails for the lot of them. Working on a complex project or even a moderately complicated Excel file from a tablet is nearly impossible. Yes, in many instances it’s the immaturity of mobile applications causing much of the conundrum and these too will change - in time. In 2014, semiconductor technology hit new milestones as manufacturers produced smaller, lower-power consuming, and more affordable components for ultramobiles. Gartner, a leading information technology research and advisory firm, predicts that by 2018 – just 3 short years from now - ultramobiles/ultrabooks will dominate mobile PCs.1 Perhaps this is the silver lining that will lead to the better path users have been looking for? 4 PCMG holds a number of public sector procurement contracts.
