With the number of mobile internet users in India projected to double and cross the 300 million mark by 2017 according to a report by KPMG, business mobility is emerging as a top priority for Indian enterprises.
VMware, a player in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, has reiterated its strategy to help customers in India realise the benefits of Business Mobility and transform their business processes. The company’s strategy aims to free businesses from more than a decade of client-server focused IT – which enabled mobile access to a limited number of productivity applications – and now deliver a more user- and application-centric experience.
The total addressable enterprise mobility solutions industry in Asia Pacific, which includes applications, devices, security, middleware, and professional services, is expected to grow from US $22B in 2015 to US$26.7B by 2017. The market in India is also slated to grow from US$1.7B in 2015 to US$2.3B in 2017 over the same period.
“With Indian organisations paying close attention to the future of business processes in the mobile-cloud era, we believe that India is on the cusp of the next major technology wave in Asia Pacific,” said Sanjay Deshmukh, general manager, Business Mobility, VMware APJ. “With a new generation of smartphone-powered workers who have easier access to end-user devices and network connectivity, businesses here are prioritising and reorienting themselves around mobile innovation, apps and services,” he added.
Adding o it, Charles Reed Anderson, Head of Mobility and IoT, IDC Asia Pacific said that the Asia Pacific market for mobility is in very early stages, with 80 percent of organisations ill-equipped to harness 3rd platform technologies, including Mobility, Cloud, Social and Big Data Analytics, to compete in the market.. “We see the next 18 months as a critical period for companies to accelerate efforts and investment in the enterprise mobility space. Companies are currently placing too much emphasis on devices and BYOD. Our recommendation is that businesses increase their investments in security, middleware and infrastructure, to enable better competitive innovation,” he added.
