In addition, mobile is more than just smartphones and tablets. Mobile encompasses the “Internet of Things,” which includes a wide variety of connected devices from the connected car to smart electric meters to traffic sensors and others, and it is expected to grow to three times the number people on earth in the coming years. From an infrastructure perspective, enterprises need a common framework to gather, store and analyze this mountain of data. The variety of different mobile platforms and devices adds complexity as does the fact that developing mobile applications is fundamentally different than designing applications for PCs.
But the mobile application itself is only part of the story. For an enterprise to progress from simply mobile to mobile , insight is required, such as capturing data on how mobile applications are used in the real world and applying that insight to process and application enhancements.
