How is enterprise mobility is disrupting the IT landscape? Kinvey, a Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) platform provider, maps out the acquisitions and partnerships among “traditional” IT and cloud players as they catch up to the new demands of enterprise mobility, and showcases the rise of mobile-first companies that are building innovative cloud-based mobile stacks and backend services.
The accelerating drive for mobility in the enterprise means that IT departments are looking to standardize their mobile stacks. Kinvey’s infographic illustrates how large IT, IaaS, and PaaS vendors are scrambling to piece together end-to-end enterprise mobility solutions through strategic acquisitions and partnerships.
According to Kinvey CEO, Sravish Sridhar, “Today, enterprise mobility may look like a peripheral part of the IT infrastructure, but the reality is that mobile is rapidly becoming the primary access point to apps and data for many businesses. IT infrastructures are going to have to become very mobile friendly — very quickly —or else risk becoming a legacy platform.”
