2014 can be called the Year of the Enterprise. With the explosion of the mobility movement and a positive reception of BYOD, it can be safely said that Enterprise apps today are as much, if not more, in demand as consumer apps. However there is a huge disparity in the demand for enterprise mobile apps and the developers who make these apps. A recent survey by Vision Mobile saw that only 16% of developers globally are developing Enterprise Mobile Apps despite the Enterprise market being more lucrative. According to this study 2 out of 3 developers, i.e. almost 67%, are concentrated in building consumer apps despite the fact that enterprise apps developers are likely to earn almost 3 times more.

Content marketing today does not need justification. It has become more or less a standard and accepted way of marketing. While more and more marketers have embraced content marketing, there still lies some confusion about type of content to create, how to make it engaging and how to derive true business value from it.
Which phone do you own? The answer to that would only be valid a few months from now. Mobile devices are the party wear of this generation: you buy one for as long as it is ‘trendy’ and dispense it off as fast as it came in after the next advertisement is out. Every manufacturer out there knows that the time elapsed between the device going off the shelf and into the trash-can is diminishing. This is one scenario that TABit seeks to leverage.

It is now more of a revolution than just a mere trend…There are roughly 120 million U.S. smartphone users and the global app economy which was worth $ 53Bn in 2012 is expected to rise to $ 143Bn in 2016. Today, people are using mobile devices to do their work, search information, make decisions, make purchases or even make donations. Recognizing this massively growing opportunity, it is not surprising that businesses are showing interest in mobile apps.

Writing anything on the subject of mobile can be very tedious as mobile has almost become omnipresent in every aspect of our life. There are multitudes of applications of mobile technology in almost every sector of industry or even every aspect of personal life. There is no proper way to start or end the topic of mobile technology given its varied history and ever expanding future. Mobile technology has literally disrupted the human life and has radically changed the lifestyle of people across the globe.
The stories of ‘the father of automobiles’, where he has a more far-reaching vision than ‘faster horses’, has been some of our first anecdotal trysts with innovation. Thinking beyond just a bunch of ticked-off questions on a form, adding empathy to the mix and creating something disruptive are catching on as tenets of a well innovated project. From the mysticism that surrounded the world of innovation ( furthered to some extent by Steve Jobs ‘misfits, rebels’ speech ) we have come a long way in crafting out the tenets as outlined above with parameters that can guide people and projects.

It was a day of joy for all e-Zest members as the company celebrated its fourteenth year of foundation on August 8, 2014. The number 14 holds special significance for e-Zest, as indeed it does for the entire IT sector. Being the atomic number of silicon, an element which drives our industry, we are optimistic that our 14th birthday is our sign of greater things to come.
True to the spirit of our value system better known as OLIVZ where Z indicates Zest for Life, e-Zestians left no stone unturned to make the day a memorable one. We believe in staying connected to our roots. So, all of us decided to celebrate the day by wearing traditional attire. The myriad colors and clothing gear displayed the diversity that e-Zest truly cherishes. There was also a workstation decoration contest which unleashed the creative side of e-Zestians. From rangolis to craftwork to music themed workstations, the Kothrud and SEZ offices of e-Zest underwent a stunning metamorphosis.
The icing on the cake was the evening event where the leadership team of e-Zest interacted with all the members. It was followed by the prize for the best dressed person and workstation prizes. The evening was concluded to some songs and cheer from the in-house band at e-Zest.
How to plan your cloud computing path
Work today is moving far from the traditional concepts that defined it. With the rise of the mobile era, companies today are veering towards flexible working arrangements that enable employees to complete their tasks with any convenient device. This mobility however, gives rise to some challenges that IT departments are addressing constantly. Mobile Device Management, Mobile Application Management and Mobile Content Management and security are some key areas of focus. The IT departments also needs to figure out the type of applications they need to develop to cater to this mobile workforce. With an enormously varied enterprise software landscape, IT managers have to identify new ways of developing enterprise apps that can integrate with internal systems. Organizations also have to look beyond the traditional email and rewire their organizations to support enterprise mobility so that employees can stay connected and complete tasks irrespective of where they physically are. Adoption of enterprise mobility will also ensure higher employee productivity and lower overhead costs. Research firmly suggests that enterprise apps are here to stay. Companies just need to ensure that they strike the right balance while adopting an enterprise mobility strategy by evaluating and understanding how employees or customers want to use it and identify ways in which this can be introduced within the organization.
Geo-fenced push ads have been a rage since the app makers discovered the power of region monitoring using GPS.
