Survey: Cloud computing to make huge strides by 2020 – NextGov

Mobile computing will outpace desktop technology in the next 10 years if challenges to access, security and interoperability are overcome, according to a study from the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project released on Friday.

The report, a survey of nearly 900 Internet and technology experts, found that 72 percent of respondents believed technology users will conduct business using shared mobile platforms and smart phone applications rather than desktop computing. Easy access to information and the growing use of mobile devices will be key drivers of this trend, they said.
