The IT world is always full of a never ending buzz!

Recently when a group of techies were asked to name two emerging technologies that they hear a lot about that will definitely have an impact on their life, the answer was: Cloud Computing and Mobile Computing. The same is agreed by HR recruiters that Cloud computing and Mobile software developers are in high demand.  In the technology industry you hear a lot about cloud computing, SaaS, Mobile Apps, Smart phones, Mobile telecom etc.

Move to 2010 and beyond… Mobile Cloud Computing. (Cloud computing and Mobile computing)

‘By 2015, more than 240 million business customers will be leveraging cloud computing services through mobile devices, driving revenues of $ 5.2 billion.

One can now see business executives doing all their daily tasks on a mobile device. Communication? Yes. Viewing Media Reports? Yes. Tweeting? Yes. Scheduling? Yes…

What is Mobile Cloud Computing?

As with the cloud computing, most of the power of infrastructure, processing, data storage resides outside the mobile device. While mobile devices have the ingenuously made mobile apps within them, they rely on powerful outside cloud sources to process and deliver the requirement. In a typical cloud computing scenario involving IaaS, Paas, SaaS, a PC acts as a client to make use of the cloud with a connectivity solution; in this case, the internet. The most popular Mobile devices fueling this growth are the Apple iPhone and Google Android products.

MobileMe by Apple

MobileMe is a cloud service by Apple that allows you to synch all you mobile devices. After a free trial period, it is a paid service costing around $100 a year. The services are for mail, contact, calendar syncing through a cloud storage space. This service is evolving and now there are plans by Apple to make this as a cloud platform. A recent update is the Mobile iDisk App, which may enable cloud iTunes and streaming services.

Other mobile cloud vendors:

The giants Google and Microsoft are also on with their plans. There are certainly some early startup companies to watch for. Nuance Communications Soonr, Upvise are some. Upvise Mobile cloud for small businesses is an interesting service offer.

Summary:

Mobile Cloud Computing Platform promises to be beneficial to both individual mobile device users and enterprises. As we saw in reality, the only industry that showed growth even during the recession was the mobile industry. Phone/mobile devices get more and more technically sophisticated to a level that we can call them mini computers so connecting to the cloud would make the more sense. With Mobile internet usage ever increasing, Mobile Cloud Computing is expected to be the next big thing.
