Why is Mobile Important!
 Over last year alone 3000% of WW mobile traffic ballooned. – Includes Voice

and data  This space is expected to grow 40X over next 5 years

 11% of the world owns a tablet ( now we have 89% of 6+ billion and growing)
 90% of the world has access to the mobile networks ( well this amazed me as 90% of world does not have access to clean water and food, but has access to mobile network)  2/3 of us get most of our news on mobile devices  76% take pictures and video on mobile devices  in past 2 years mobile ready sites have grown from 150,000 to 3 million  11 billion apps in 2010

 On commerce front – this year $6.2 billion purchase were made from Mobil device --- compare that to $54.2 billion black Friday sales
 If mobile users would be nation, it would be largest nation….. And I could go on…

Mobile Platform Imperatives
 At a broader level guiding principles of mobile Strategy is broken into 4 Components: – Access and Content - B2C/B2E etc – Application Centricity - Application development practice • porting vs. new development project. – Device Management : What are Mobile device management requirement • App store/device wipe/push fix-notification etc. – Security - Application (Work light) vs. Plugging into enterprise security infrastructure (TEM)  Some Questions that drive the solution design process are:  1. What is the overall Enterprise Mobile strategy? – Is the access for employees ONLY or possibly visitors (e.g. visiting physicians/heath care professionals)? – Access & Security  2. Type of application Framework? – New app vs. porting, this includes the new acquisitions and moving all mobile apps to a common framework.  3. Type of application deployment ? – Again includes the new acquisitions and moving all mobile apps to a common deployment framework

Business Drivers and technical considerations?
 New business models and paradigms  Social network! Obviously? – Everyone wants to be on Facebook/linkedin etc – Every solution is compared to scalability and availability like social networks – Capitalize on ‘perceived’ new markets on social network.  Emerging Channels of commerce – New breed of personal devices – Speed of commerce – Low tolerance for ‘slow’ experience – New lines of currency – Zynga, SMS for money transfer?  Proliferation of ‘smart’ phones (AND Data!) – Do everything but make phone calls (?) – Exponential growth of these phones ( 35% of US population as an example) – 128 million iPhones (about that many other phones) – Emerging markets ( India, China, Brazil, Russia etc)  Globalization!! – Single market for everything – Everything is linked  Brand/Image Exposure – How U interact with my business. Solution : Cloud Computing? MEAP? MCAP? Next Buzz Big thing?

Mobile Design Points and middleware landscape
Enterprise Design Points:
 Deliberate and Intentional engagement  Exposing back end services and data  Data transfer and data growth considerations  Bandwidth and TCP Socket chatter

Technical Design Points:  1.Enterprise application integration (tools and libraries  2.Device integration and peripheral support  3. Application client runtime  4. Device/OS platform support  5. Packaged mobile  6. Hosting

 Enterprise Integration  Security – enterprise and endpoint security

 Device and Platform support
 Legal responsibilities – Application store, client data and resulting exposure

 7. Architectural flexibility

What are these landscape changes driving?
Elasticity  Rapid provisioning (e.g. IWD Appliance,TPM, BladeLogic)  Configuration Automation (e.g. RAFW, etc)  Virtualization – HW (e.g. VMware/PowerVM) and Middleware (e.g. WVE) Scalability  eXtreme Caching – improving speed and scalability

 Data/cache partitioning and co-location
Data awareness and real time processing  Sense and response or even driven architectures (Fraud/Marketing/BI)  Reduced processing – or off loading to a efficient tier

 Moving data closest to application (relevant logic)
Achieve Elasticity and Scalability – Application Infrastructure (WebSphere enabled middleware) Data awareness and real time processing – require new architectures and design.
