Mobile cloud computing offers a platform-agnostic, cost-efficient and flexible solution. Let's take a look at where it stands in the cloud technology market.
The progress in the realm of mobile and cloud computing, along with wireless technology and multimedia communication, has transformed the outlook of the global mobile cloud market. The three deployment models of the mobile cloud are the same as that of any other cloud infrastructure – public, private and hybrid.
In essence, mobile cloud computing (MCC) is a combination of traditional cloud computing and mobile web. Therein, data processing and storage are taken care of by centralized computing platforms.
Growth in the Mobile Cloud Market
The advancements in cloud computing bring about greater flexibility by provisioning the services via portable devices. Mobile cloud gives access to cloud services and applications in the hands of the end-user. Due to this, businesses are quick to adopt mobile cloud services.
The mobile cloud market valued $12.07 billion in 2016, is expected to reach $74.25 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 30.1% from 2017 to 2023. Furthermore, in the past year, the growth rate of the mobile cloud market has risen. According to forecasts, MCC is to grow at a CAGR of 30.71% from 2019-2025. Therefore, at the new CAGR, the market will be valued at 118.70 billion by the end of 2025.
The tangible increase in the use of smartphones and other portable devices is likely to create new possibilities. The high amount of usage will build new roads for cloud service providers and application developers to enter the market.
Advantages of Mobile Cloud Computing
Market drivers for MCC are increase in smartphone usage, availability of faster network connections, and a rise in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) technologies. Here are some advantages of MCC:
The ability to access cloud services and applications from any portable device is the most significant benefit of mobile cloud computing. All you require is an internet connection and a device to make the most of the centralized computing platform. Your cloud data is in your hands (both literally and figuratively)!
Whether your device supports android or iOS, you can use cloud applications with ease. Developers that design such applications do so with end-users in mind. Thus, cloud computing services can easily be modified regardless of the platform.
Elimination of the cost of hardware makes MCC highly economical for individuals and businesses alike. The upfront cost associated with mobile cloud computing is meager, and you pay only for the amount consumed.
Effects of Mobile Cloud Computing
Among other industries, healthcare is among the most crucially impacted by these advantages mentioned above. Healthcare cloud applications have seen a rise in recent times to keep patients and doctors better informed and prepared.
Not only is the mobile cloud computing market highly competitive but also gives a vantage point to those industries making use of it. If you are looking to implement more scalability in your cloud infrastructure through a financially viable plan, then mobile cloud computing is for you.
