• Mobile Cloud

    "Mobile and cloud computing are converging to create a new platform—one that has the potential to provide unlimited computing resources. Mobile devices are constrained by their memory, processing power, and battery life. But combined with cloud computing, data processing and storage can happen outside of mobile devices. What IDC calls the “Third Platform” will allow for better synchronization of data, improved reliability and scalability, increased ease of integration, anytime-anywhere access to business applications and collaborative services, rich user experiences, and an explosion of new services.”

  • Next-generation mobile networks

    “Ubiquitous mobile computing is all around us, not only when we use smartphones to connect with friends and family across states and countries, but also when we use ticketing systems on buses and trains, purchase food from mobile vendors, watch videos, and listen to music on our phones and portable music playing devices. As a result, mobile computing systems must rise to the demand. The Cisco Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update projects that global mobile data traffic will increase 18-fold between 2011 and 2016. Many systems in urban areas take advantage of robust networking infrastructure, gigabit-bandwidth backbones, high-speed relays, and unlimited power and recharging capabilities. However, many operate within degraded network, power, or computing environments, such as for first-responders in a catastrophe, mobile phone users in remote regions or countries with degraded communication infrastructure, or when millions of people watch fireworks and overwhelm the local networking infrastructure. In these scenarios, the needs of mobile customers can outstrip the infrastructure’s capacities and result in degraded performance. Researchers must develop tools, middleware, and applications that can help with these quality-of-service issues.”

  • Enterprise Mobile Devices and Enterprise Mobility

    Mobile Devices with built-in hardware-based Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that would run secure applications for corporate users. Progressive organizations worldwide are prioritizing productivity and innovation by empowering employees with mobile devices. Apple has teamed with IBM already to build comprehensive tools on corporate networks so Software Engineering services can focus on helping employees transform how they work.

  • Improved Security

    In addition to improved device capabilities on corporate security, mobile operating environments are also getting better with its security. These features help corporate Software Engineering departments to implement their own security policy so that their employees can bring to work and securely use their own mobile devices. Improved mobile security means that corporate users can be provided with mobile technology to improve productivity.
