A few years ago, it seemed inevitable that wireless technology would rapidly become a necessary, integral part of corporate computing. IT managers and CTOs alike were scrambling to wireless-enable their applications and build the infrastructure to support the predicted coming wave of mobile workers. But, a slowing economy, a battle over wireless standards, and a lack of killer wireless applications had many hitting the brakes on wireless adoption.
Just because the hype surrounding wireless computing had to 'get real,' it does not mean that mobile application development and serious advances in wireless technology infrastructures stopped. In fact, it's quite the opposite. And, experts say that a wireless strategy continues to be critical for business today.
