Are we about to embark on a new era of technology that is centered around the cloud rather than the personal computer?

According to this article in Wired the research firm Gartner “believes the personal cloud will replace the PC as the center of our digital lives” by 2014. Yes, in just two years Gartner believes that tablets and smartphones that connect to the cloud to get and host information will become the normal operating method. In this press release Gartner points to these reasons for this shift to occur in 2014:
– Consumerization
– Virtualization
– App-ification
– The Ever-Available Self-Service Cloud
– The Mobility Shift
Let’s take a look at how topShelf already applies to some of these principles.
– Consumerization: Gartner says that “the rise of powerful, affordable mobile devices changes the equations for users.” The term “inventory system” certainly sounds expensive but because our software can work on smartphones and tablets you can achieve total inventory control for as little as $20 a month.
– The Mobility Shift: Gartner says that in 2014 “access to the cloud and the content stored or shared in the cloud will be managed and secured, rather than solely focusing on the device itself.” With topShelf you can access your information from any browser on any device from literally wherever you want that has an internet connection.
Scout has been ahead of the curve when it comes to cloud based computing. We are rolling out updates all the time that result in our clients having an easier time managing their inventory. Join the cloud revolution today. Contact a sales representative at 651-964-3259 to learn more about topShelf.
