Feel a new mobile experience by Google Cloud Platform

With more than a billion people crazy about tablets and smartphones, there's a growing demand and a huge opportunity for mobile solutions. Users currently have at their disposal hundreds of thousands of apps, and for mobile developers to succeed, it is vital to come up with engaging, compelling and connected user experiences. This requires a necessity for services or backed components to feed the app with pertinent data, consent to interactions between users, and offer push notifications.

By using the Google Cloud Platform one can easily create a backend for their mobile solutions. You could easily decide to start small and hope to eventually get many users or you may already benefit from a sturdy customer base that you'd like to serve via a brand new mobile experience. Either way, there are smart ways you can use to develop a backend that can live up to everyone's expectations and meet the demand. Leverage the Google infrastructure; focus on implementing your app's scenarios, and stop worrying about trivial things such as load balancing or managing machines.

Breaking down the Enthusiasm Barrier and Getting your Employees Interested in Mobile Networking

As strange as it may seem, one of the problems that some companies run into when it comes to creating a remote network is a problem of enthusiasm. Many employees may be intimidated by the idea of networking remotely, especially if they aren’t entirely familiar with mobile devices. Likewise, some supervisors are hesitant to accept the idea of remote work because they can’t monitor an employee’s time. Here are some ways to break down those barriers.

Technological Concerns

Learning a new system can be intimidating, especially as people get older and become more accustomed to the technology that they use on an everyday basis. Because of this, some people may not be willing to make the jump to remote networking because they don’t want to learn more about their mobile devices. Many people purchase mobile devices for one or two tasks, never learning how to use the full array of technology at their fingertips. This barrier can be overcome by connecting with your employees on a personal level when it comes to the technology. By showing them how learning more about a mobile device can benefit them personally, it encourages them to learn more for business.


The Best Mobile Devices for Business Use

Who doesn’t use a mobile device these days? Even if somebody doesn’t have a smartphone or tablet, it’s only a matter of time before they get one. The modern work environment almost always requires some sort of mobile device for remote networking purposes. But which machines are the very best for business on the go? While the answer depends partly on the needs of your company, there are certain devices that tend to be better than the rest.


One of the oldest smartphones but also one of the most popular and long-lasting, the iPhone has had plenty of time to streamline and perfect its business model. While all versions of this phone are good, the product really began to excel with the iPhone 4 and the release of its IOS 4. This version of IOS improved security capabilities to business class, making it one of the best phones you can have if you plan on doing confidential work on a business network. The phone is very customizable through the many different apps out there. The iPhone is ideal for email, web surfing, and calendar management as well. Overall, it represents a product that can perform almost all essential business functions well.


Windows 8: To Convert or not to Convert?

There’s bound to be controversy whenever Microsoft introduces a new version of Windows. People complain about the new interface, about compatibility issues, and more. However, the controversy usually dies down after a while as consumers and businesses alike make the switch. Windows 8, on the other hand, has now been out for a year and a half, and the debate about it is still hot. When looking at your own business, is converting to the new Windows worth it?


One thing that Windows 8 offers over previous versions of the operating system is more system speed and better memory management than ever before. This is due in large part to the interface being optimized for use on mobile devices, which don’t have the luxury of massive amounts of processing power that you would find on a typical office computer. If you have done everything you can to optimize your business computers and your employees are still encountering slowdown, a switch to the faster Windows 8 might be in the cards for you. This is especially true if your company makes heavy use of laptops and tablets that need to run memory-intensive programs.


Mobile Viewer: Preview

The Mobile Viewer for Remote Utilities for iOS and Android will be released in just a few days. This post contains a brief overview of the features in the mobile version.

Currently, only the Viewer module is accessible in the mobile version. And the reason for this is simple: a connection from a mobile device to a remote computer is required much more commonly than a connection from a computer to a mobile device.

The application’s interface is simple. When it is launched a window appears with a prompt to enter the IP address or Internet ID of the remote computer. There is a list function with a bookmark feature to save frequently used addresses.

When the Connect button is clicked, a connection is established with the remote computer in Full Control mode. This means the user can see the remote screen, control the cursor and send keystrokes to the remote computer. Currently, the Full Control mode is the only mode in the mobile version. However, in future releases we will add additional modes.


Customizing your Business for Mobile Users

Is your business network available on any device? With the increased focus on mobile marketing and business on the go, you should make sure to take the extra steps needed to optimize your network for access on smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. This can be as simple as revamping your company's website or as complex as overhauling the way you handle your network security. For some tips about moving to a mobile world, read on.

Mobile Access versus Mobile Networking

First of all, it is essential to define the difference between mobile access and mobile networking. Providing mobile access is a matter of making your website mobile-friendly. This means optimizing your business's public site, removing frames that can be cumbersome on mobile devices, and streamlining your overall graphical presentation. By comparison, mobile networking means optimizing your entire business network so your employees, consultants, and other VIPs can easily access their essential files through their mobile devices. This is a much more involved process and requires a comprehensive look at your network. It can cause some security issues, but it can also streamline your business.
