Mobile Cloud Computing Industry Outlook Report: 2011-2016

NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Mobile Cloud Computing Industry Outlook Report: 2011-2016 Understanding the Mobile Cloud Conundrum Until recently, cloud computing has been thought of within the context of the evolution of the Web and PC. In 2011, we are seeing a paradigm shift in business models, with mobile becoming a key feature in cloud computing conundrum.

Mobile cloud has the potential to change the life of consumers and enterprises beyond what can be conceived today. We believe that the size of the mobile cloud market is poised to reach over $45 billion by 2016.

Our research suggests that the mobile cloud ecosystem is rapidly evolving. With new, complex and secure products available on the market, cloud players and enterprises want to capitalise on the opportunities offered by this burgeoning market.

Mobile cloud is being used by both the Consumers and the Enterprises The cloud market has gone through major changes in 2011, in the consumer market, services and apps being offered include the Gmail and Facebook for mobile users. On the enterprise side, mobile cloud services are changing the entire structure of the IT industry. This is where the greatest action in terms of revenues generated and technological changes will take place during the forecast period of this report.

Mobile Cloud Market Dynamics Mobile network operators are at the forefront of monetizing the cloud opportunities. We believe MNOs can replace CAPEX with OPEX and offer new revenue-generating services. They can also move real-time communications services (voice, video and messaging) to the cloud. This option opens up new business models with compelling ROI. Although these models remain untested, they offer the promises of positioning the operators as an important player in the mobile cloud value chain.

Our research suggests that by offering branded mobile cloud services, operators have a chance to improve ARPU and profit margins. Visiongain believes that MNOs need to identify the suitability, feasibility and acceptability of the cloud strategy in their particular markets.

Other market players can also effectively monetize the cloud and increase their revenues.
