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.

Most organizations do the mistake of treating collaboration as a bunch of tools, much like a telephone connection. Collaboration is a way of doing things. It is how you execute a particular process more effectively. What is the logic of executing a process effectively by asking an employee to get out of the application that one is using and then use some collaboration tool and then get back to the application?. Collaboration will only meaningfully work, if it happens inside the application. That is the only meaningful way to promote collaboration as an idea deep into the enterprise. This is precisely the direction that MoNimbus™ takes with collaboration. Here, we discuss two ways of presenting collaboration. Hosted Collaboration and Embedded Collaboration.
Hosted Collaboration services
Most of the large enterprise communication firms are into creating cloud based collaboration services that are independent of enterprise applications and solutions. They are stand-alone services like global Video as a service or audio as a service using a standard backhaul. Operators in conjunction with enterprise communication firms have been in the business of offering Hosted collaboration services to enterprises.
Embedded Collaboration Services
Then there’s a technology differentiator where we’ve been built from the ground up to being multi-tenanted in the operator network to provide for embedded collaboration services. Collaboration services like, Presence, Chat, audio and video embedded within the workflow of applications and business processes that are part of the MoNimbus suite. For e.g. mCRM from MoNimbus will offer business use cases that embed push to call, chat, push messaging etc. These are all the things that mobile operators understand and care about.
Enterprises are in the first stage of dealing with mobile in the sense of coming up with the right policies or approaches to BYOD. Embedded collaboration allows them to really take better advantage of mobility. Remember , for any enterprise engaging your client is about being mobile and about being a mobile enterprise. That is what MoNimbus™ enables.
