The Rapid Evolution of Mobile Technology
In today's mobile world, we have come a long way from making calls and sending SMSes to executing one's every day transactions; be it browsing the internet, booking movie tickets, measuring vital health statistics or performing bank transactions. Today, everything can be done on your mobile phone. It is the era where mobile phones are smarter and faster than humans.
There is no other technology in the world that 87% of the world population owns. The mobile technology is displacing the dependency on fixed location technologies that keep people and businesses chained to physical places. Recent research shows that 31%-33% of companies are developing and implementing corporate mobility strategies and policies. Smartphone penetration in the world's top 19 digital markets is expected to double from 35.5% last year to an average of 71.7% in 2015, according to a new media forecast published by ZenithOptimedia. Smart-phones and wearable technology will power the world in future.
Mobility is now creating an ecosystem across education, healthcare, entertainment, life style, finance and retail. In the next five years, we will see more traditional businesses getting outcast by mobile technologies. Change is occurring so quickly that only the companies built to be immediately responsive to customer changes will remain competitive.
