MSP Model Good for Mobile Computing
Mobile computing has skyrocketed in the U.S. and around the world. Many businesses, local and international, are more likely to be delving deeper into mobile computing solutions than they are on procuring new PCs and servers and other traditional ground-based computing.
At a conference in India, the word "billions" was floated around as far as the growth potential of managed services provided for integrated mobile telephony and IT environments. This could be taken with a grain of salt, as there are as many surveys hyping managed services growth, as there are cool new mobile phones rolling off the assembly lines every month.
But the gospel isn't just being preached in India. Other research groups, such as Informa, suggest that mobile carriers are moving into third-party management of mobile data services This presents an ample opportunity for small and large managed service providers to throw their hats in to manage the storage, security and operational efficiency of mobile computing infrastructures for organizations at the SMB and enterprise level.
Symbianone says that the main priorities for managed services in the mobile space "include specialist services such as web discovery, advertising, content management and hosting data-centre management."
Now, all you need to do is make the call.
