Moving Business Applications to a Mobile Environment
The advent of the mobile phones and the birth of mobile applications recently makes business a lot more easier for most business and business owners. There are a lot of business apps available and we can already see it accelerating at a quick rate.
That is the reason why business owners are now trying to migrate business applications to the mobile world. That too, is why there are reports that business strategies are beginning not just looking to be able to move business oriented applications to the mobile environment, but they are also looking to move mission critical application to the mobile environment.
Presently, there are billions of cellphones sold annually. What we are seeing is a tremendous growth in the smart phone and iPhone app development category too. Take a look at Blackberry as an example. What developers are doing now is they are basically trying to come up with an overall platform, that is to be able to provide consumers with the ability to be able to remotely manage their environment.
What is great about that, is that companies can inject close to an hour in efficiency gains for the company per employee by investing in mobile platform. Also companies, regardless of size, are developing or have in its place, wireless strategies or plans. In the past, that may sound unusual. So what does that mean? It means that they are looking at how they can mobilize their backend environment. They want to inject efficiency from a maneagablity perspective of those devices or those smart phones that they’ve deployed to their employees in the field.
So there is really much more to mobility than your email or internet. You can now mobilize those back-end applications that you are accustomed to and basically put it into the hands of your employees. An example would be, the wireless carriers who have deployed Blackberries with applications into the hands of their field level technicians, so that they can establish whether there is an issue at a much faster time.
Technology has indeed come a long way. It is up to us how we can use these advancements to our advantage. It is also up to us how we can use its full potential to upgrade procedures in terms of business and system strategies. Let us use this to make systems and procedures more easier and much faster through mobile business application.
