With the growing need to be constantly connected and having easy accessibility to multiple apps that provide real-time information, there has been a paradigm shift to a mobile world that has compelled enterprises to leverage the benefits of mobility. By 2020, an estimated 80 billion connected devices will exist, and telecommunications would move from a consumer-centric role to a smart-enabler role.
The Mobile e-mail market dominates the current landscape of enterprise mobility in India. However, future growth engines are core business applications and M2M markets, which are experiencing significant traction. The Mobile e-mail market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 percent by 2017. Core business applications are estimated to grow at a CAGR of 37 percent, and M2M services at 41 percent by 2017, which illustrates the momentum behind more workflow mobilization and growing awareness in enterprises.
According to Thejaswi Parameshwaran, Program Manager, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan, South Asia and Middle East, “In the next few years, an important mega trend we expect is that IT Infrastructure would be around 80 percent wireless on a single integrated platform. Thus, wireless intelligence will be the key factor that enterprises will use to enable faster decision-making in their business processes. The enterprise mobility market represents a diverse ecosystem of best-of-breed players in different fields of expertise, and the core strategic influencer for the market will be how they synergise together across the value chain to provide enterprises a one stop shop for their mobility needs.
The way forward would be to evolve from a standalone provider to a mobility management provider that drives an ecosystem around it. Enterprises are expected to gravitate toward such ecosystems with a key flagship entity, as it would enable confidence and reassure them of return on investment (ROI) and quality of service for their mobility investments.”
The Enterprise Mobility Summit 2012, hosted by Frost & Sullivan, discussed the key trends and challenges in this sector. The Summit saw participation from telecommunications companies, system integrators, and device manufacturers. A panel discussion on Increasing Productivity, Lowering Total Cost of Ownership: Developing the Right End-to-End Mobility Roadmap for an Enterprisesaw participation from key panellists from Arkadin, Research in Motion Ltd, Wipro Technologies, and Vodafone.
