Many Parts to Mobile Ecosystem
From an enterprise perspective, the mobile ecosystem – in conjunction with cloud offerings – presents a significant shift. Rather than having tight control over the entire experience, IT architects now must contend with devices that often serve dual purposes and connect to third-party systems. The accompanying chart illustrates this challenge.
This leads to many questions:
- Who is in charge of the physical device?
- Who controls the software on the device (including the OS?)
- Who controls the way the device connects?
- How secure are the backend systems that are accessed through mobile apps?
