Cloud Computing is an emerging style of computing where applications, data, and resources are provided to users as services over the Web. The services provided may be available globally, always on, low in cost, ‘on demand’, massively scalable, ‘pay-as-you-grow’. Cloud computing is a technology that allows users to access software applications, store information, develop and test new software, create virtual servers, draw on disparate IT resources and more- all over the Internet.
Industries such as Logistics, E-commerce, Travel & Transport, employ a big chunk of their task-force to work in the field, who carry-out company’s flagship service. Often times, the team even works in other parts of the world. Such scenarios create management gray areas, where managers have no clue of the job status and possible risks. Field workers, on the other hand have no clue how to fix those possible risks and of further assignments.
Cloud Solution is now a mainstream technology, and in much better shape than it was, two years ago. Proof? Nearly all Fortune 500 companies have already adopted cloud solution services to cut-down costs and increase sales. Powerful IT professionals have commented on its inevitable dominance on Information Technology Industry in the coming years.
Business Process Automation – The term is a power that gives your full-fledged company the potential to optimize its operations further. To avail this capability, mobility needs to be the central resource that your organization needs in order to conduct its wide array of tasks. Whether is orchestrating your staff, enabling faster decision making, or real-time monitoring of your resources – everything can be tackled with Enterprise Mobility.
In our previous blog in the blog series Enterprise Mobility, we have discussed about its evolution and the need for it. In this blog, we will discuss about enterprise mobility ecosystem and a little about its landscape.
An enterprise can be of small, mid or large size. Earlier, only large enterprises were considered to embrace well-defined catalysts in their execution cycle, due to cost and infrastructure overheads.
Enterprises stress at gaining competitive advantage. User delight, efficient/productive workforce, and resource optimization lead them to versatile challenges for mobility. In the process of achieving it, the companies might face challenges in terms of data security, enterprise data gateway, device/platform diversity, manageability (application distribution and data management), and user experience. In order to break through challenges and fulfil the need of desired focus areas, enterprise solutions have also emerged with time.
By now, we all have understood the importance of Enterprise Mobility. It helps in increasing the productivity, smart decision-making and acts as a cost benefit analysis. Many-a-companies will feel that it is always better to build an IT infrastructure for automating the workforce. Building an in-house enterprise mobility solution not only incurs costs but also there are many chances for failure.
Cloud computing refers to the practice of transitioning computer services such as computation or data storage to multiple redundant offsite locations available on the Internet, which allows application software to be operated using internet-enabled devices.
The essential characteristics of Cloud Computing:
On-demand self-service: Individuals can obtain computing capabilities such as server time or network storage on their own.
Scalability: In an ever-changing business environment, scalability is essential in administrative, functional and geographic fronts. The application architecture must accommodate an increasing number of licensed devices users-on-demand. Managing & budgeting a growing a number of licensed devices may be a challenge. Front-end application functionality must be easily adaptable to include new features because of used demand.
