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.


Three big trends are poised to transform enterprises and the way they do business.
Our heads are “in the clouds”
Cloud technology offers an “on-demand” platform for businesses to quickly deploy applications on virtual infrastructure outside the businesses firewall “in the cloud.” But cloud comes in different flavors and with its own set of challenges which is why businesses hesitate to move fast.
With public cloud computing resources can be provisioned to support the business. Just as quickly, idle resources can be dynamically allocated to another company for their computing requirements. However, many companies are nervous about putting their data in a public cloud.
For a company that does not want to migrate its data with other users in a public cloud, they can utilize a “private cloud” that is isolated from other organizations — all the while, maintaining the benefits of a scalable cloud platform that services many users at a time. With both public and private clouds, the company still has to deploy an application and is responsible for the maintenance of the application.
While there is flexibility in cloud computing, there also lies complexity with so many options.
Going mobile is not about walking and talking
Mobility is probably the biggest game changes for enterprises, both in how they can conduct business and how their employees can perform it. Mobile technology allows workers to work anywhere and anytime. Most employees wish to go well beyond conversations with their mobile devices and access critical business apps such as sales applications, support applications and IT applications. The challenges of moving these applications that were not designed for mobile are many and they involve UI, content, workflow etc.
Social is more than fun and games
For many, social applications mean Facebook with friends or tweeting but not in a business context. It is myopic to not see social technology working across business functions and processes including decision-making, business and operational processes, product development and customer service.
Social technology can increase the pace and productivity of business only if enterprise managers understand and embrace it for their respective businesses.
Individually, each one of these technologies is a serious game changer. But it is in combination that cloud, mobile and social can be fundamentally transformational for businesses moving it to a more sense and respond model.

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.
