Research and Markets: Blended Mobility: When Your Car is Your Mobile Phone

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3khrnq/blended_mobility) has announced the addition of the "Blended Mobility: When Your Car is Your Mobile Phone" report to their offering.

This SPIE explores the dynamics of a blended mobility environment, as well as the impact this will have on consumer buying decisions. It will be of interest to telecommunication carriers, automobile manufacturers and those companies who provide them with technology.

Introduction

Many years ago, the author of this SPIE was an Army Signal Corps officer. In that prehistoric age, he was responsible for radio communications for a Cavalry unit, and had to maintain an inventory of radio equipment. One of the items was a short wave radio; and, in the list of authorized parts for this radio was listed: M-557 Armored Personnel Carrier (one each). A 17-ton tank was considered to be simply a component of a radio system!

As ridiculous as this example may seem, the consumer communication services market is quickly making conventional automobiles an adjunct to the communication devices that users carry. For example, in-vehicle telematics, once considered something of a solution aimed at an exclusive market, is set to enter the mainstream in a significant way.

Major telecommunication carriers, such as AT&T and Verizon, are already engaged with automobile manufacturers to embed 4G communications capabilities in every automobile that is delivered to the market. Many entry level players, such as Charmtech Labs, are also introducing innovative ways to access this new connectivity.

Potentially in the future, the automobile will be considered not just a mode of transportation, but the seamless fulfillment of an action initiated over a wireless communication network. For example, the driver speaks non-fat latte near work and the latte order is placed, the electronic wallet debited, directions to the coffee shop near the speaker's work location are assembled and programmed into the automobile's navigation system, and the driverless automobile negotiates through traffic to arrive at the coffee shop at the very moment preparation of the non-fat latte completes - nirvana!

This profound blending of transportation with wireless mobility introduces new considerations for both the vendors of the enabling technology as well as the consumers who are expected to buy it. Consumers will increasingly be asked to choose cars based not only on such considerations as horsepower and aesthetics, but also on such features as wireless coverage and communications suites. It is likely that at some point the value assessment will swing in the direction of communication functionality. When that happens, a car lease may look like a wireless calling plan that also happens to include a car - for a small additional monthly charge, of course.

This SPIE explores the dynamics of a blended mobility environment, as well as the impact this will have on consumer buying decisions. It will be of interest to telecommunication carriers, automobile manufacturers and those companies who provide them with technology.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
