Why it's (finally) time to embrace thin client technology

Rob Enderle | Dec. 8, 2014
Earlier this week, I was at Dell's analyst update on its thin client business and it got me thinking about how thin clients were supposed to replace personal computers. An experience that was instant on/off, that embodied simplicity and reliability and that not only had the performance of a PC but could be updated without any user impact was a compelling idea.

Currently I think the perfect combination will be a smartphone-like device backed up with something like Amazon Web Services providing a blend of services to both consumers and businesses, but with a hard barrier between them and a user experience that is competitive with Apple or Microsoft (or Apple and Microsoft).   The result should transform the market.

I don't know about you, but I can hardly wait.
