Why There Is A Visible Relationship Between Mobile Apps And Cloud Computing

In the last decade, cloud computing has grown immensely. Private companies, individuals, and non-profit organizations have adopted various cloud solutions in equal measure. The most common among these have been the hosting-based applications. More and more companies host their applications in the cloud. Similarly, there has been an increasing demand coming in from mobile users. The relationship between mobile apps use and cloud computing is direct, but the reasons for this fantastic development may not be that obvious.

Immense growth in the mobile sector

The results of a recent survey show that, since 2009, there are more mobile phone users in the world than at any other time. This is especially true about powerful mobile phones that support app use and installation, such as smartphones and iPhones, which sell like hot cakes today. The number of people who are using the apps is huge. But how does this relate to increased cloud computing use?

The answer is simple. People are understandably using their iPhones and smartphones to do a lot with their messaging and apps. All these represent a lot of data to store. Naturally, the cloud is the most obvious place where the data is stored. Storage, however, is not the only function these resources play; there are many other associated cloud functions.

Demand for mobile apps developers

With more businesses trying to scale the different mobile apps sector for their clients, customers and shareholders, the demand for app developers has increased. Naturally, there are many app developers out there; however, for these businesses to leverage their results, many app developers are on the cloud—doing what they do best—creating mobile apps.

Moreover, the demand also works positively for cloud computing because of the virtual nature of the app developers’ work. The platforms they use to execute their works are also responsible for the increased cloud computing-apps development demand situation.

Rapid evolution of the cloud and mobile apps markets

Mobile apps and cloud computing markets exhibit the highest growth rates witnessed in history, making them two of the hottest topics of discussion for most corporates and businesses. This means that, when one business adapts to a technology like mobile apps to reach its customers, the others are looking for ways to leverage their losses. In a techie field, what better way is there to help businesses leverage this than cloud computing? Thus, these sectors end up growing side by side.

These are only three scenarios to explain the connection between cloud computing growth and mobile apps boom, but since the implications are more complex than this, many other explanations exist.
