Mobile Cloud Computing – The Future of The Mobile Industry

Mobile Cloud Computing -The Future of The Mobile Industry

These days cloud computing technology is being discussed just about everywhere. People are excited and curious to know more and more about this latest technology and about its working pros and cons. Cloud computing is usually viewed in the context of web, business firms, and data servers. But it is not only business companies and personal computer users which are going to feel its impact; it will bring a major change in the mobile industry as well. Cloud computing is going to dominate the way in which mobile applications will operate in near future. A new term “Mobile Cloud Computing” has been devised for a combination of cloud computing and mobile applications. In mobile cloud computing, data storage and data processing occurs outside the mobile device and results are displayed through screen or speakers. GPRS, Gmail, and Google Maps are already being used are pioneer examples of mobile cloud computing. In a few years time we can expect a major shift from traditional mobile application technology to mobile cloud computing.

Benefits of Mobile Cloud Computing

The fact that feature phones still outnumber smartphones in the world is the entry point for mobile cloud computing technology. Feature phones are not able to store and process huge amounts of data. As time moves on, feature  phones will be sophisticated enough to work as smart as smartphones do, by use of mobile cloud computing.

How will Mobile Cloud Computing be a Dominant Force in the Future?

There are two main reasons which will be a decisive factor for mobile cloud computing to dominate the mobile industry. The fact that this technology can target a huge market, even larger than the whole smartphone market, will lead to increased investment in this technology. The second reason is the way, mobile applications are distributed recently. If you want to use an iPhone application, you must have iPhone. Similarly, if you want to enjoy some Blackberry applications you have to have Blackberry. With mobile cloud computing you will be able to enjoy all such application only if you can access web through your cell phone.
Mobile cloud computing also offers all the benefits of cloud based computing. Customers don’t have to purchase and update their hardware and software every time a new application is launched. And more importantly they don’t have to pay for features they don’t use.

Market Competition among PaaS Players Could Make a Big Difference

The word Platform-as-a-service probably rings a bell. Think of: Salesforce. It is one of the leading companies in PaaS technology. Amazon Web Services and Google’s App Engine are two of the other major players. The presence of so many industry giants means a lot of competition and efforts to become the cloud market leader. Competition will automatically bring quality and economical services to customers.

When will Mobile Industry really touch the Cloud?

Within a year, we are expecting to observe a fierce competition among PaaS players for becoming the market leader in mobile cloud computing. In about 2-3 years, customers in technologically and advanced countries will be feeling a major change in mobile application technology. 2014-15 is estimated to be the year when mobile cloud computing will really start to dominate the industry.
