Hi There! ActiveSync will become more and more critical
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of Wick Hill Group, noted that BYOD was arguably the biggest buzz word of this year, and it will continue to gain significance in 2013.
He noted that smartphones, tablets and laptops all come under this category, as well as desktop PCs used remotely from home.
"BYOD is a transformative technology and 2013 will see companies trying to integrate it into their networks," Mr Kilpatrick stated.
"While tactical needs will drive integration, strategic requirements will become increasingly important."
He predicted that mobile device management (MDM) solutions will also increase in demand during 2013, following strong growth this year.
