NEC has launched new software which allows users to work offline and then synchronise and back up their data in the cloud as soon as they are connected.
The Japanese computing giant said that Cloud in Your Pocket has been designed to fit on a small device such as a 3G/LTE modem or USB dongle, and the firm is likely to work with network operators to bring the technology to market.
The software will allow mobile workers who lose connectivity to carry on updating and managing their data, and to synchronise and back up the new version in the cloud as soon as connectivity is re-established, the firm said.
Cloud in Your Pocket also automatically encrypts data, thus allaying any security fears IT managers may have.
"The NEC Cloud in Your Pocket has made the mobile cloud a reality by enabling operators to provide pervasive mobile access to cloud resources, and profit from new services over the cloud," said Jaime Serrano, Cloud NEC Europe vice president.
"For the first time, a cloud working environment is available anytime, anywhere and regardless of online connectivity or broadband speeds.
"Users can continue to manage and process their work even, for example, while in-flight, and synchronise any updates via the cloud as soon as they land at the airport."
Cloud In Your Pocket can be deployed in public, private or hybrid environments, said NEC.
