Cloud MBaaS : The Next Big Thing in Enterprise Mobility

The real challenge of enterprise mobile apps, is not about creating the front-end environment or developing front-end for multiple platforms. The most important thing of enterprise mobile apps is to expose your enterprise data to mobile devices where the real pain is your business data might be residing in lot of different systems including legacy systems, ERP systems etc., and these systems will be deployed with lot of security restrictions.

Exposing your data from the on-premises servers, is not a easy thing for most of the business organizations. Many organizations are spending too much time for their front-end development strategy, but they are really lacking for building a strategy on their back-end for exposing the business data to mobile apps. So building a REST services layer and mobile back-end services, on the top of legacy systems and existing middleware systems, is the key part of most of the enterprise mobile apps, where multiple mobile platforms can easily consume these REST services and other mobile back-end services for building mobile apps.

IT’s control freak security mentality is starting to unravel

The big flaw in conventional thinking on information security has been exposed now that IT is losing direct control over enterprise computing.

For years, IT has made the mistake of equating ownership with security, according to analyst firm Gartner. But with staff increasingly using their own devices and non-IT functions buying cloud services, the failings of that assumption are clear.

“It’s not about ownership and control. That worked in the past because we owned everything. We don’t own everything and we need new models for trust and trustability that do not rely on direct ownership,” VP and Gartner Fellow Neil MacDonald said.

“In fact information security was never about device lockdown, or dictating applications or building firewalls. It was always about protecting the confidentiality, the integrity, the authenticity, the availability of information. That’s our job,” he told an audience at last week’s HP enterprise security event in London.
