Using Cloud in Mobility Solutions
What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is internet based computing in which by using a network of remote server hosted on internet to allow access, store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer is called Cloud Computing. It is a type of computing data that relies on sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. So the phrase cloud computing means “a type of Internet-based computing,” which provides different services such as: servers, storage space and applications — are delivered to an organization’s computers and devices through the Internet.
Why are we using Cloud Computing?
A user/company will manage large amount of data/files, to store & manage a huge amount of data will require a large memory space or server. People want to access those data whenever & wherever they are. In case if the data is corrupted or any problem arises in Server or any kind of hardware problem occurs, user fears for loss of data.
By using cloud storage user need not worry about losing data, slow accessibility and it is easy to manage any kind of huge amount of data. It will save user’s time, money, easy access and gain market share.
People now want the freedom to stay connected whenever & wherever they are, by using any type of devices like smartphones or tablets, to work at home or any other locations will be able to share information. Cloud computing gives us this ability, providing access to hosted services on a subscriber-based model, ensuring that the services that customers consume are consistently updated and improved which in turn will drive loyalty and engage users.
Growth of using Cloud ComputingIn 2008, the global cloud computing industry was estimated to be worth $46 billion. By the end of 2014, the industry is predicted to be worth more than $150 billion. Many companies use more than one type of cloud computing service.
What is Cloud Computing in Mobility
Mobile + Cloud computing is the combination of cloud computing in mobile networks to bring benefits to Mobile app users, network operators, as well as cloud computing providers. Currently we are in the midst of a mobile revolution in which every customer wants data security & access their data through applications anywhere and anytime. Consumers are increasingly bringing their devices to their work places, expecting to use their enterprise applications and be supported by their IT organization. This trend is being accelerated by the increasing popularity and availability of Smartphones and tablets. But smartphones are small devices having less memory space, within an application we cannot store or save all the data in the device memory, so we are using server to save data. But server is not safe for storing a large amount of data & for easy accessibility of customers anywhere & anytime.
Mobility in the Cloud is a Platform as a Service offering (PaaS) where the Middleware layer consists of software. This Platform can be managed directly by the corporate customer or by one of the partners. Mobility in the Cloud includes a large number of mobile apps that can be the extensions of your traditional business suites dedicated to lines of business or specific industries. It includes analytic apps and any of your custom apps.
Mobility in the cloud platform introduces a multilayer approach to corporate security designed for mobility that ensures both internal and external device users can securely connect to enterprise information systems. The confidentiality of any network link that transfers corporate information and, of any location that stores the enterprise data is guaranteed.
What are the benefits of using Cloud Computing in MobilityUsing cloud computing, no longer is work defined by a physical location. The limits of location and time are removed, allowing employees to work at anytime, anywhere. Instead of clocking in to the traditional eight to five job, employees are now free to work outside of office and also without traditional business hours.
Using cloud computing, enterprise can now allow their employees to work from anywhere, anytime and any type of device allowing them greater productivity, flexibility, and an overall competitive advantage.
Your business will gain competitive advantage in the marketplace. Customers are happy to using the application easily without any slow processing. Use any application at anywhere and anytime.
Cloud solutions can also allow you to perform faster and easier access of mobile application management, view app distribution and monitor usage for all devices and users across the enterprise, no matter the operating system they’re running or whether the device is corporate-owned.Following are the Major benefits of uses of Cloud Computing:
- Quick Services
- Universal Access
- Secure Services
- Satisfying User Experience
- Cost Effective
- Multi-User Access
- Development Platform
- Infinite Storage
- Distribute documents and data
- Carry out over-the-air inventories (devices, apps, …)
The concept of mobility solutions emerges very rapidly with the concept of cloud computing. This technology creates an unparalleled platform for organizations with enterprise mobility solutions.
The other benefits of cloud with mobility solution are reliability, scalability, empowerment of employees, and real time updates, save time, save money and increase business space. It therefore represents the opportunity for mobile application development company to increase customers & gain market share.
