Mobile Usage Growth.png
Today, people access and use data on the go. We use tablets, smart phones and various other hand-held devices for instant and comprehensive functionality. This dovetails with other technologies and, especially, cloud computing, since little local computing power is required, enabling the heavy lifting typical of professional apps.[1] These can be company-provided or, increasingly, personal devices through a policy known as "BYOD".[2] Compatibility with this trend is advisable to the extent that relevant work practices involve them. And in any case, any websites or other online information must be consistent with those formats if they are to be maximized. This was apparent even as early as 2014.[3][4] All of LabLynx's web pages have been updated to be mobile-friendly.
