Mobile + Cloud—What Does It Mean?<br />Cisco IBSG’s definition: Mobile services and apps delivered from a centralized (and perhaps virtualized) data center to a mobile device. <br />Mobile cloud comprises two categories of services:<br />Traditional cloud services:The extension of traditional, wired cloud services (Saas, Iaas) to mobile devices (e.g., Mozy, Salesforce.com)<br />Unique mobile cloud services: Services that exploit features of the mobile device (e.g., camera, voice recognition) and the characteristics of mobility (e.g., location, presence) to create unique, cloud-delivered offerings (e.g., bar-code scanning, real-time translation) <br />Source: Cisco IBSG, September 2011<br />
