ABI Research to Host “Mobile Cloud Computing” Webinar

The limited capabilities of mass market mobile devices and the restricted expansion of mobile applications due to mobile OS fragmentation are the two primary barriers to the explosive growth of mobile applications. But, asks ABI Research’s Mark Beccue, “What if you could build applications based on web standards, move the processing associated with the applications off of the mobile device to powerful, centralized platforms and then use the Internet to access the applications, in essence moving these applications into the ‘cloud’?”

On December 10, ABI Research will host a Webinar on the subject of “Mobile Cloud Computing,” hosted by key members of the firm’s expert consumer mobility team: Practice Director Dan Shey and Senior Analyst Mark Beccue. It will address, among other topics, these critical questions:

  • What applications, products and services could leverage mobile cloud computing?
  • What are the forces driving developers towards cloud-based applications? What are the inhibitors and limitations?
  • What applications have already been developed?
  • What companies are building the foundations of this transformative technology?

The seventh in ABI Research’s “Stay Connected” Webinar series, this informative and enlightening session will explore the types of mobile cloud applications that will succeed, and the drivers and inhibitors affecting the growth of mobile cloud computing. It will review case studies for both consumer and enterprise applications, present ABI Research’s thoughts on where the market is going, and offer forecasts and recommendations for interested players.

The Webinar will take place Thursday December 10 at 11:00 US Eastern Daylight Time.

The event is free. Please register at:
