The Progeny of Cloud and Mobility holds the Financial Service Growth

Cloud and Mobility-The ability to access servers holding important files, the sharing of databases and other useful application can all be achieved today at LAN speeds no matter the location of the users. When it comes to business, all this can be put to good use by colleagues working in the same physical office or those who are on a completely different continent.
At the same time, only the activity which is attributed to user terminals passes through the communication links, which means mouse clicks, keystrokes and updates that are seen on-screen. That is why cloud technology is gradually finding its way into many different industries. But, an often overlooked factor in its application possibilities has been the appliance of cloud-based management service in the mobility domain.
This includes everything from device management, management of mobile apps, sharing of secure documents and management of mobile expenses. This is the domain where cloud tech and mobility merge to form an even more powerful symbiosis, supporting each other in a very functional manner. Here are the reasons why management through cloud-based mobility includes several important benefits over traditional server-based options.

Flexible expense management: When it comes to cloud-based systems, there are no payments made up front and users instead pay predictable fees for services which are billed monthly. Cloud service allows users to scale the scope of functionality as the business grows. This means that companies of different sizes can take up equal amounts of resources, while the service is provided in equal amount of time.
One console to rule them all: An operation that supports more than one operating system needs multiple consoles. An MDM solution can provide a unified view for these consoles, but these are expensive and cumbersome, and also tend to take up a lot of time. By using Mobile Cloud Computing and management based on cloud mobility, devices like iPhone and iPad can utilize the same console. This, in turn, can function equally well on Android based devices or anything else that might come in the future.

Your desktop goes with you: Users of Mobile Cloud Computing have the ability to access their accounts from a variety of computers and other devices. This means that a user can have the same level of functionality in their office, hotel room or home, having access to the same files and applications. The same are delivered through a personalized and constantly updated desktop environment.

Mobile work force: This approach provides support to many different sectors of a company, including salespeople, technicians in the field, delivery teams and everyone else who works outside of a regular company office. Mobile Cloud Computing grants the equal access to central data and application, and these can be run from any device used outside of the company.

Flexible access: Access flexibility presents users with unlimited ways of getting to the data and apps they need. By being browser based, these can include remote access which is no different from the regular access options available in the company itself. Apart from the Internet, access options include VPN’s (Virtual Private Networks), point-to-point lines, or even dial-up modems.

Strict security: By incorporating a high level of security standards which are employed in the financial sector and the defense industry, any content located on a cloud service is very secure. That is the reason why Mobile Cloud Computing offers additional security to those who start to use it.
