enterprisemobility image1There are 1.6 billion smartphones in the market and growing.  The number of connected devices is set to see further acceleration through pads, sensors, glasses, and watches.

With the increase of these devices at the edge of an enterprise, the first contact with the enterprise for most clients will be the mobile channel.  It makes mobile a strategic imperative and initiative for the enterprise. It becomes an important part of the enterprise IT stack and more the reason for embracing it at the earliest.

Consumerization leads to flexibility, untethered workers

Enterprises need to understand Mobility is the future.  The sooner they understand and move towards mobile the sooner they will see a competitive advantage.  If this is coupled with a better user experience it can lead to more efficient, smart workers.

Some businesses are taking it too literal and making the move to mobile first strategy with a rewrite of applications to a device.   This device centric focus costs huge time and money with very little to show on user experience.  What is necessary is a transformation of the application to next generation experience that embraces mobile, cloud and social.  Further if Applications take into account location, context, push to text, cross platform usage, leverage power of mobile they can result in making the app more predictive and anticipatory, thus making the user smarter and efficient.  This is the approach that MoNimbus prescribes.

It is through a cloud based middleware that can extract existing apps and transform them in real time.  The emphasis of this enterprise mobility approach is to keep the enterprise focused on its mission.  Digitization of the enterprise i.e. creation of web assets is what the company does best and should continue to do so. MoNimbus servers do the rest. That is active and real time transformation of application assets to optimized and intelligent experience on any device, anywhere in real time and on a SaaS model.

 


 

building and running wtih mobile apps image

The BYOD and BYOA trends have actively been redefining the role of enterprise IT professionals. With so many mobile devices and free applications to choose, employees have changed the definition of “work” and “being at work” as many now have the opportunity to do their jobs far from the office. But this newfound freedom is the reason for the battle between employees who want to use apps of their choice and IT departments who strive to control how enterprise documents are used and with whom they are being shared.

Enterprise IT is once again in the eye of the perfect storm of convergence with mobile, cloud and social technology factors. Enterprise CIO’s must manage IT budgets of hundreds of millions of dollars and reduce operating expense given the increase in budgets is not increasing more than 0.7% a year. While doing this, they must provide higher quality service that “aligns with the business” and manage a service delivery stream that is being turned on its head due to BYOD and consumerization of IT.
One lesson on the road to Lean operations is that IT needs the systems and processes in place to run a strategic business function. IT delivers Services and LOB apps to the business. Organizing around common business processes to the business and providing for mobile enabled LOB applications and services IT can be on a road to services that can be monetized. Organizing around services provides a common language on which to align IT with the Business and moving to a new platform of mobile, social and cloud can create a market for IT products. This establishes a framework for IT to operate like a ‘business” and manage the true costs and value of the services delivered.
Enterprise IT can then make supply decisions based on demand for e.g. do we bring out mobile sales or mobile services or mobile travel first. Enterprise IT can weigh market alternatives (cloud solutions, outsourced development cost)on equal terms. In addition, IT can establish a credible baseline unit cost of each service per user per seat, and acquire visibility into the discrete cost drivers of each service. By tracking the subscription cost per business service , IT leaders can communicate with business leaders in a language they understand, manage demand for IT Services, and better align with business priorities. Based on this model they can extend services built for their enterprises to others.
This is where MoNimbus™ can help accelerate enterprise IT to move into a revenue model for applications investment. MoNimbus™ changes the velocity of mobility adoption and its economics with its platform for configuring business services and readymade solutions. Enterprise IT can either make their own investments and depend on MoNimbus to embrace mobile social and cloud or go through NoNimbus public cloud for enterprise application hosting and configuration for optimized mobile experience.


The BYOD movement has become a trigger to the evolution of enterprise mobility solutions. The first step towards enterprise mobility has been device centric. It has been about empowering employees to use any device they own for work-related activities. After all mobile means anytime, anywhere on any device.

Most organizations are evolving the required security, management and compliance infrastructure to enable a BYOD environment. Mobile Device Management software has played a big role as a starting point to build the mobile-first enterprise.
However mobile enabling enterprise applications and business processes whether it be LOB apps, client facing apps, employee facing apps or partner facing apps that access corporate data from personal devices in a secure and efficient manner is the true end goal of the mobile-first enterprise. It is the goal of MoNimbus.
The goal of MoNImbus™ is to enable mobile applications to leverage data and workflow of any business process within the enterprise in real time. In addition, it is about adding value with related business workflow and technology services in the cloud to make for an intelligent and optimized experience. It may be conceptually trivial, but the process of mobilizing business apps is extremely challenging. MoNimbus is focused on this challenge.

The IT transition to cloud/mobile/social has entrepreneurs and investors salivating, while providing Enterprise IT and business users with three factors to consider:
• newer opportunities
• better options
• reduced costs
Nevertheless, enterprise technology faces an incredibly complex series of challenges and opportunities:
The Rental Economy. The operational savings and speed presented by Cloud and SaaS technologies are changing how we pay for IT. Why invest when you can rent? This is a good thing, as resources will be used more efficiently. But it poses challenges for infrastructure technology vendors and professional service players. They need to change business models. App and platform makers like MoNimbus could even take care of the infrastructure.
BYOD and CITE. Enterprise IT managers are being forced to cope with a new model of IT, with the advent of business users Bringing Their Own Devices and Consumerization of IT (with applications being downloaded for sheer delight and experience). The classic enterprise software license that they are used to are a few apps away from oblivion.
User Experience – Consumers long used to the consumer mobile devices that sport sharp colors, strong resolution, use of the mobile features such as high resolution two way camera, , touch screens, two touch zoom able user interfaces all of which that transform the viewing and user experience of consumer applications are in no way ready to go back to boring UI of existing web applications. They want applications that leverage power of the mobile, leveraging the context based on location, leveraging the collaborative features of mobile, leveraging the integrated social media, and available anytime anywhere on the cloud.
MoNimbus meets all of these challenges with a mobile cloud platform and business applications with next generation experience.


In the late 90’s the Internet boom gave way to scaled Physical data centers housing thousands of servers. In the past years they have given way to virtualization leading to increased CPU utilization and efficiency, rationalization of costs of storage, rack space and labor costs. The reduction of physical infrastructure has resulted in a larger benefit of mobility of the enterprise.

Virtualization has paved the way to cloud deployment. Moving to cloud is a business decision based on a modular, efficient, scalable platform delivering an on-demand self service user experience. The Promise is of lower costs and move to a newer business model.

Enterprises moving to cloud in addition to business benefits will have the added advantage of increased mobility and scale at any time. This scale factor coupled with the BYOD phenomenon implies growth of mobile end points – fones, tablets etc, and extension of services to all of them. Enterprise IT has to deal with the compressed time to provision and deploy new applications services across all of these end points. The challenge is to accelerate adoption of the mobile web of applications and services within the enterprises i.e of scale. Another important challenge is to introduce a level of experience that comes with the mobile enterprise.

MoNimbus™ is geared to meet the challenges of Scale and Experience with its cloud based mobile enterprise application platform and applications.
