FCW Rugged IT Snapshot Examines Latest Government Computing Trends
Rugged technologies play an important role for mobile government workers, and these technologies are in a constant state of evolution. Staying informed of the latest advancements is important to maintain efficiencies, and Federal Computer Week’s “Rugged IT Snapshot” makes this information readily available. The five articles included are infused with valuable industry insight and accounts of first-hand experiences from military and government agencies. Recognizing the importance of sharing these details, Panasonic Solutions Company chose to sponsor the report.
Some of the most prominent takeaways of the report include:
- The importance of designing a rugged product from the inside-out, not just adding a rugged exterior.
- How rugged tablet computers are offering greater functionality and heightened performance
- How Hill Air Force Base is interested in rugged tablets for eTools flight line maintenance
Rugged technology is no longer just a feature or option for field workers: it is nothing less than essential. Ultimately, the solutions discussed in the Snapshot are changing the ways in which the public sector operates. I would encourage officials in all levels of government to read this report and recognize the possibilities for enhancing their mobile workforce.
