Business Benefits of Convergence of Mobile, IoT and Cloud
Overcoming Current Limits
Though all these three technologies have evolved and come of age, they are handicapped by their own limitations. Let’s take the example of IoT, while it promises to make devices smarter and take their decisions independently, there are times when it would require human intervention and this is where mobiles may act like remote control for IoT powered devices. Similarly so many interconnected devices would generate tons of data and this need to be stored, processed and made accessible to users and this is what Cloud Computing brings to the table.
Connect Business To Customers Unlike Before
If there is one thing that redefines business of 21st century it is how they connect with their customers. Increased collaboration lead to better customer service, which acts as a transformation agent for the business. With the convergence of these three technologies, businesses tend to scale upward. It will help customers access services in near real-time as they communicate with businesses. In easy terms this would be a huge improvement over the present device-to-gateway model that is in place with cloud and Internet of Things solutions.
Maximize Resource Utilization
Maximizing resource utilization has become an important goal for businesses across industries. It also helps them cut costs and competitively price their products and services. Convergence enables sharing of resources between mobile, IoT and cloud computing solutions. In fact this will ensure that businesses get the best out of devices, networks and applications.
Personalization of Services
Customers around the world aspire to use tailored made products and services that have been customized to their liking. With convergence, businesses would have more access to user preference and would thus be able to personalize their services to meet the expectations of the users. While such information is still available with the present model of computing, it doesn’t quite foster real-time processing of such information. To avail real-time access, it is important to understand the business needs, and personalize the solution accordingly.
Last but not the least, return on investment is what interests businesses across the board and convergence promises to offer healthy return on investment to any business. It is estimated that by the end of the decade close to 30 billion devices would be inter connected in the world through wireless technology. With convergence, businesses would be able to process data being generated from all these devices and offer better customer experience to their users. Convergence would also reduce the need for human intervention in some of the mundane tasks that are performed by businesses.
The true benefits of convergence can only be derived when businesses focus on these three elements individually. It is thus important to focus on these three key elements and build them to seamlessly converge and complement one another.
