IT and enterprise themes will dominate at MWC

Mobile World Congress  Analyst Mark Newman gives his Opinion

For the first 30 years of its life, mobile communications felt like a standalone industry with its own technology, services, vendors, and service providers. A select group of telecoms vendors created the technology road-map and vision; a relatively small number of investors and operators captured the most lucrative licenses to build and operate mobile networks; and a few European, US, and Asian vendors controlled the mobile phone sector.

The Mobile World Congress, which takes place in Barcelona next week, will highlight just how quickly the technology and services landscape is starting to change. It will mark a further shift in the evolution of mobile communications from a sector in its own right to a service and a capability which other companies in other sectors – banking, enterprise technology and software, and digital media to name just a few – can use to deliver improved services to their own customers.

The hot topics at MWC will come mostly from the world of IT. Cloud, data analytics, and SDN will all feature prominently on the exhibition floor. Enterprise services and applications become a dominant theme. And most of the “future-gazing” on display will be around the Internet of Things.
