Take it with a grain of salt if you will: Rove (http://www.roveit.com), a provider of mobile IT management solutions, says IT decision-makers are increasingly turning to Android smartphones and tablets to manage their networks using the company’s remote monitoring system, Mobile Admin.

“Android tablets provide users with a device that is a serious competitor to the iPad in the tablet space,” says Matt Moore, Rove’s director of Development.

Rove Mobile Admin is a secure tablet- and smartphone-enabled IT management solution giving IT staff mobile access to incident detection, diagnosis, triage and resolution. Rove Mobile Admin uses agentless technology and enables network administrators to access and perform management operations on an extensive array of IT servers and services.
