Wi-Fi Moves Into Enterprise Computing

June, 2005


Wireless computing, or Wi-Fi, is making rapid inroads into corporate networks, driven by demands of mobile users and others who appreciate the convenience of being free from wired connections. According to the Computer Economics 2005 Information Systems Spending and Technology Trends survey of key CIOs and IT managers, the ROI and TCO characteristics of Wi-Fi are excellent. Therefore, Wi-Fi is a low risk investment as long as a security assessment and appropriate risk mitigation measures are included as part of the overall strategy for implementation.
