  • Issue 41 October, 2013 MaaS rains benefits – reign of enterprise mobility begins Two of the most prominent technology trends, Cloud and Mobility, have joined hands – giving rise to a robust enterprise mobility platform. Mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) is born out of the hybrid combination comprising infrastructure elements, security applications, operation tools and other components. The various components combine well to promote deploying, managing and monitoring of mobile devices, users and data. Most importantly, MaaS initiates the shift of responsibility from the enterprise to service provider, when it comes to mobile infrastructure and management system. MaaS gives the push for enterprises to set up a mobility platform, boosts user productivity by enhancing scalability, reliability and security.
