Today, mobile phone users outnumber Internet users by 3 to 1. Over the next 10 years, however, the number of people using mobile phones will in turn be outnumbered by the sheer number of devices—from automobiles and smart meters to vending machines and emergency sensors—that have some form of built-in mobile connectivity. As the number and variety of mobile devices have risen dramatically, so has their incursion into the enterprise, as well as business-consumer relationships. Indeed, smartphones have transformed how employees interact with each other, as well as how enterprises interface with and support their customers. Furthermore, a new wave of mobile technology innovation is now further extending mobility to a range of machines and devices, all using embedded mobile technology.
Although these developments create exciting opportunities, mobility also increases the complexity of the environment for developing, launching, and managing the underlying systems, applications, devices and networks.
