How Mobile Virtual Reality is Impacting Industries

How Mobile Virtual Reality is impacting industries

The Virtual Reality (Virtual Reality) Technology on mobile is gaining traction with many mobile hardware manufactures like Sony, HTC, Microsoft, Google and Lenovo launching Virtual Reality Devices and Headsets. The Gaming and Entertainment industry, the primary beneficiary of Virtual Reality technology, has been able to churn out cost effective and affordable Apps that is easily accessible by all, decreasing the dependency on bulky hardware and complex technologies. The interest in this segment is growing by the day and it is evident from investments made by some of the big tech giants, like Facebook’s investment of $2 billion for Oculus, Google’s $542 million into Magic Leap, Microsoft’s wonderful HoloLens.

Of late, companies across different industry verticals are planning to leverage on the Virtual Reality technology to minimise cost and maximise revenue. We will take a look at some of the industries that are poised to make the most out of the Virtual Reality Technology using Mobile Devices.

Education and Training Industry:

The Education industry is well-poised to take advantage of the Virtual Reality Technology using mobile. Education can be more effective if theory is combined with practicals. This is the primary reason why apart from books students take part in practical execution of knowledge. Thus e-Learning is gaining prominence where students are educated using videos and supplemented with practicals through Mobile App and Tablets. The education industry can use Virtual Reality effectively to impart education in the fields of Medical, Automobile & Machinery, Biology etc. This is a boon for NGOs who are trying to educate children at remote locations in the absence of books and other Educational Materials.

Virtual Reality for Sales and Marketing:

The Sales and Marketing division of companies are on constant lookout to use trendy and eye catching innovations to reach more people. Similar to Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality can also be the next big thing for Marketing.

Field Marketing and Sales Agents can use their mobile to display their products easily to their prospective clients to give them a hands on Virtual Experience. There is immense potential to market the product to users who can experience the product before they actually use it.

Therapy Using Virtual Reality:

Virtual Reality Technology is used in the medical field for treating patients with Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Alcoholism.

Virtual Reality has been a part of treatment for more than a decade as an instrument for therapists to administer Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy (Virtual Reality ET) in an Environment that is safe and controlled. But during the earlier stages of Virtual Reality technology, the cost and technology limitations were huge, which made the treatment unaffordable. But with inception of mobile Virtual Reality headsets, there are newer avenues to be explored in reaching-out to more patients.

Museums and Art:

Museums have been safeguarding Artefacts and Historic relics, which is also displayed to public for imparting knowledge and teach what history is to general public in various parts of the world. But the very singular existence of many items in museums make them difficult to access. People cannot travel across to various cities just to visit museums making it difficult and sometimes impossible. Emergence of Virtual Reality on mobile is one way of solving the problem.

Speaking about the Entertainment Industry, companies are looking for different options to enhance the movie watching experience from their comfort of home using Virtual Reality Mobile technology. As mentioned earlier, the biggest benefactor would be the Gaming Industry, which has been striving over the years to provide a Live and Interactive Environment

With rapid improvement in Hardware and Software Technology, the Virtual Reality devices will become much smaller, lighter and cheaper. All these could make it more affordable and usable to many users.

How Mobility can Foster Innovation

While enterprise mobility is one buzzword of this decade, innovation management is another. What if the two are combined? Mobility can foster growth in innovation and support innovation in multiple ways.

Traditionally innovations have been considered as accidental discoveries. But the modern companies refuse to believe so and are putting in place innovations team comprising of innovation manager and staff. Fresh ideas, fresh ways of doing things and fresh perspectives benefit enterprises enormously, some can even be a turning point for an enterprise.

Encouraging innovation is one of many ways to welcome change and mobility can bring about speed and precision to innovation.

Quick access to data

By mobile-enabling enterprise functionalities, important data can be accessed easily from anywhere, anytime. Innovative ideas are like electric sparks that can create a blast only if the fuel is available at the exact moment. Quick information gathering, keeping data handy and a detailed knowledge of the possible gaps in implementation, helps innovations officers to quickly access supporting data, connect the dots and discover new areas, new consumers, new channels and new methods. This process is reliably supported by enterprise mobility.

Information management and feasibility analysis

Managing and handling innovation needs discipline and commitment. While ideas can emerge from anywhere, excellent ideas can get ignored as well. It is important to manage new ideas, deeply analyze the pros and cons, analyze supporting data, brainstorm and come to a conclusion on the appropriateness of implementing an innovative idea. Mobility allows the staff to document such ideas on the go, brainstorm effectively, and document their thoughts as and when they occur. This quick and efficient collaboration not only saves time and resources, it also fosters creativity and interest which in turn foster innovation.

Idea translation into profits

With great ideas comes great responsibility to translate it ‘effectively’ into profits! Appropriate implementation is the key. When to implement, where and how? are some of the questions that need thorough analysis. Is an idea too early for the market, does it need phased implementation, does it need tweaking, what if it backfires, what are the challenges? Mobility allows the staff to access and document information quickly. Real-time effect of the idea can be observed. Simulations can be carried out and various analysis reports can be accessed at the tip of your fingers; quick projections can be carried out. All these help one understand the impact of a new idea implementation and allow the CIO to decide if the idea is worth pursuing. Any losses can be contained with efficient use of mobility by the staff.

While a great innovation is necessary, it is of no use if it cannot be translated into profits with better data management, speed to market, feasible and superior implementation, post implementation analysis and efficient follow through. Mobility allows an enterprise to achieve just that and is very apt in today’s business ecosystem.

Enterprise Mobility Administration: Some Clever Solutions

Making a decision on implementing mobile-enabling solutions and bringing about the required changes in order to create conducive environment is only the beginning of enterprise mobility. What is important is to set up a good, efficient and reliable mobility administration system in place. This will ensure continued control over mobile-enabling activities and the associated areas. Here are a few solutions that stand out as imperative for optimal performance of any mobile-enabling solution.

Mobile Virtual Private Network (m-VPN)

A mobile VPN created apart from enterprise and other VPNs, can pave the way for reliable and secure connectivity tackling network uncertainties. These VPNs also address device visibility to control and provide access to critical systems. Separate mobile VPNs can be created for end-users, managers and customers for simpler monitoring and management of mobile devices in the wild.

Controlled Usage

Mobile devices that access enterprise backend systems can be controlled by enforcing network wide device and user specific policies. This system allows remote devices to be controlled and improves security by protecting users from inadvertently taking actions that can render harm to their devices, software, data and even backend systems. Enterprises can restrict corporate devices from being used for personal purposes by restricting access to applications, browsers, games etc. and even specific websites. Further, allowing data synchronization only in known and corporate networks can help in reducing bandwidth in expensive networks and data integrity in unsecured networks. With this kind of secure system, every possible action of a mobile device can be defined and controlled for micro management and total control over deployed devices.

Standards Compliance

Secure over-the-air (OTA) access for mobile devices requires enterprises to be compliant with applicable corporate and regulatory standards and procedures. This in turn calls for additional security measures to protect network, devices, application and data throughout the enterprise (including systems not directly related to enterprise mobility). However, enterprise mobile management (EMM) and mobile device management (MDM) frameworks and solutions ensure secure, flexible and optimized mobile infrastructure including complete compliance with changing corporate and regulatory policies.

Update Management

Mobile enterprises function on the cutting edge of technology for enhancing value to their business against market competition. This calls for quick deployment of patches against known and discovered exploits lest security or functioning of the enterprise gets jeopardized. With varied mobile devices on different networks and diverse platforms, a central cloud-supported update management system can ease enterprise mobility management and bring in significant cost savings by automating push updates.

Enterprise Mobility – Possible Setbacks

As is the case with any change agent, mobile-enabling arena is not devoid of setbacks and obstacles. Some of the common setbacks that an enterprise may encounter in their pursuit of mobility are:

User Acceptance

Enterprise mobility depends a lot on user preferences. A workforce not used to smart mobile devices will have a higher learning curve (requiring significant orientation, demos and training sessions) and may hamper enterprise productivity (especially for time-sensitive industries). Unlike, traditional software services, mobile applications can be updated or changed completely including interface, workflow etc. in no time by harnessing the power of APIs and features, in current and updated mobile operating systems. This move has the potential to upset the workflow of end-users, who are already grappling with the functioning of the new mobile enterprise. In case of BYOD deployment, even technologically sound users may show reluctance to use their personal devices for enterprise computing, or carry multiple devices to keep personal and enterprise data separate.

Data Connectivity

Enterprise mobility depends on perpetual connectivity. There is no real-time data or instant analysis without uninterrupted connection to the backend infrastructure. Although cloud services can reduce the connectivity impact by offering quick access and storage for offline interaction, it is only a stop-gap solution. Corruption of data due to failure of connection midway and its recovery while simultaneously keeping the mobile enterprise functioning are areas of critical concern. Further, there are issues in serving across the globe with different cellular and wireless options, and confidentiality of encrypted data over unsecured and free WiFi hotspots.

Device Visibility

Enterprise mobility may pose visibility issues. It is not possible to keep track of all deployed devices across multiple networks and platforms due to network problems and software hang ups. Planned updates may fail due to low battery or zero connectivity. Similarly secure deletion of sensitive data may prove futile, if the lost device is never connected to the Internet. Device IDs can get cloned in unsecured networks allowing backend systems to give access to rogue devices, slowing down the entire mobile infrastructure, and forfeiting the benefits of on the go computing.

Enterprise Mobility – Transition Plan

Enterprise mobility is here to stay and the sooner enterprises realize this and plan on making the transition, the easier it will be for them to adapt to the fast approaching changes in the way world works. Enterprise Mobility is the future of business, and all the associated activities so to say.

While there are challenges in terms of technology, planning, strategizing and solutions deployment, sooner or later these challenges need to be faced. It is becoming imperative to mobile-enable in order to survive and grow in this highly competitive business environment. The inherent cost factor can be set off in phased mobile-enabling measures, where in a number of cost cutting measures can be brought about and productivity and performance can be enhanced. The benefits to the bottom-line are enormous and the cost of mobile-enabling is just a fraction of it. The question is not “if an enterprise should adapt mobility”, because it sure needs to, the actual question moves further to “how to mobile-enable and which company to partner with for mobile-enabling solutions”.

While collaborative applications such as e-mail were the largest deployed mobile applications in the last decade, a recent IDC survey suggests that 70% of organizations are currently deploying at least one other mobile application, with more than 30% of these companies are deploying multiple mobile applications. In the next two years, most organizations are expected to extend their mobile applications to areas such as CRM, ERP, SCM and a host of other functions.

Partnering with sophisticated solutions providers such as Karya Technologies, who have proven solutions in this arena, will benefit organizations planning on mobility in a multitude of ways. Whether it is the custom-built mobile applications development, pre-built mobile application deployment, customization of pre-built mobile applications or an end to end solution in terms of consultation, planning, strategizing and implementing the mobile-enabling endeavors, Karya Technologies is ready to accompany your organization in ensuring that your enterprise traces superior growth trajectory in the years to come.

Striking Features of Enterprise Mobility Solutions

An efficient mobile-enabling solution needs to address several factors amicably in order to deliver the desired results. The most important areas that need to be addressed harmoniously in the quest for superior mobile-enabling solutions are:

Heterogeneous Infrastructure

Although most enterprises feel developing, deploying and supporting a single mobile platform would be easy, efficient and cost effective for mobile-enabling their enterprise, the truth is radically different. Since true enterprise mobility is not restricted to the enterprise and its workforce, consideration for other mobile platforms is critical for the success of a mobile-enabled enterprise. The support for heterogeneous mobile infrastructure with various devices and iterations of mobile operating systems such as Symbian, Palm, BlackBerry, iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and other Linux variants is the need of the hour.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

BYOD in enterprise mobility is more of a reality than a concept. With executives and end-users preferring to carry a single, unified and simplified gadget for work and communication, access to enterprise functionalities on their smart devices makes business sense. It is cost-effective, reduces training and instantly improves productivity due to device and its operating system familiarity. Enterprises have observed a remarkable shift from desktops to laptops or netbooks, and now it is time to transition to handheld mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Extensible Architecture

Enterprises need a mobile platform that can adapt to their existing backend IT infrastructure, a variety of mobile application development scenarios and different mobile devices and mobile operating systems. Enterprises are also keen on open systems for rapid development, deployment and delivery of mobile solutions and services. This kind of open and extensible architecture helps enterprises to go mobile without affecting their existing enterprise infrastructure and try out new mobile, web and cloud services in the extended enterprise.

Cloud Connection

Enterprise solutions work flawlessly within the enterprise even with simultaneous access, control and updates. However, when enterprise functionalities leave the premises, connectivity and storage takes importance. Most mobile devices work with limited resources be it processing, memory or disk space. On top of it 24/7 internet connectivity, regardless of the location, is still not a reality in any country. In such a situation, cloud services rescue enterprise mobile deployments and enables mobile devices to function offline with the latest data. Later when there is connectivity, enterprise databases can be synchronized safely and securely.

Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM)

Enterprise mobility on heterogeneous devices, and its software ecosystem, requires a unified management system. It is impossible to individually manage each mobile platform, especially when the end-user’s device, software system and location is unknown or changes frequently. Mobile Device Management (MDM) can help enterprises to centralize operations of multiple smart devices effortlessly, transparently and seamlessly.


Simplified System

Enterprises go mobile to add strategic value to their business. However, any complexities in the mobile platform is an obstacle in deriving value from it and even affects the existing infrastructure, especially during integration with backend systems and third-party or custom solutions. Therefore, the robustness of the enterprise mobile platform in terms of security, usability and productivity is critical. Such a system reduces technological complexities, integrates holistically and simplifies enterprise mobility for smooth deployment and effortless management.

Embracing Enterprise Mobility

Enterprise mobility is a strategic tool that accrues business values across functions. Although enterprises like to function on the go, there are a variety of complexities involved in the mobile ecosystem and this perceived complex nature of mobile platforms, technologies and deployment options may deter enterprises from full scale adaption of mobile-enabling services.

Some of the factors that may act as deterrents are:

  • Multiple backend systems, legacy solutions and new generation of services
  • A growing number of disparate mobile platforms – Symbian, Palm, BlackBerry, iOS, Android, Windows Mobile
  • Myriad devices and system software iterations that create a dilemma that can stump even veterans in technology selection and management
  • Diverse cellular standards to deal with – GSM, CDMA, WiFi, WiMax, 4G and other promising technologies

However, what enterprises have come to realize is that all this diversity is here to stay. In order to trace the continued growth trajectory, enterprises need to adapt and allow mobility.

The following was the forecast by IDC back in 2007 that projected the mobile professionals at about quarter of a billion by 2011.


Although enterprises cannot change the current mobile world complexity, they can simplify it for their enterprise by building a robust enterprise mobile architecture that plays along with this kind of heterogeneity.

An enterprise mobile platform that can handle different backend systems, mobile devices and infrastructure is the need of the hour. Such a platform offers tools for rapid deployment of applications and services across mobile platforms and networks, synchronizes data transparently, and brings in web services (cloud access, storage and sync) for universal accessibility.

This is not a distant dream but a reality that delivers key enterprise management and security components surpassing the expectations of IT managers and mobile end-users. Karya offers ready to deploy and custom-built enterprise mobility solutions specific to industry verticals.
