As Mobile World Congress is taking place this week in Barcelona, there’s a lot of focus around mobile in the news. Mobility is now essential for consumers and companies, and incorporating it into a digital strategy that also includes social, cloud, and analytics is an important part of digital innovation.
While most of the focus for mobile is on the edge of the infrastructure and delivering apps to users, you still need a backend that can support the front-end – response time and relevant data are ‘must haves’. An infrastructure that can power the complex queries of a data-driven strategy is part of a mobile strategy that will allow business data to flow across the enterprise. As consumers, we don't think or care about the backend, but as providers you need to ensure it will support the service levels required.
You can read more about this topic in last week’s Forbes article titled, “Here's Why Mobile Shouldn't Stand Alone” in which I discuss this issue with my colleague Suhas Uliyar, vice president of mobile strategy product management at Oracle.
How important is mobility to your customers and what are the most challenging issues that it’s posing to your organization?
