Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/024ad8/mobile_virtual_env) has announced the addition of the "Mobile Virtual Environments: The Opportunity for Guest Applications and Operating Systems" report to their offering.
This report looks at the market for virtualization technology and the emerging trend of separating applications and operating systems from the underlying OS or hardware. Technologies such as hypervisors, secure application containers, thin client solutions, cloud application solutions, and application virtual machines are being used to run Android apps on non-Android devices and support secure BYOD solutions.
The explosive growth of mobile applications and waning battle between application ecosystems are creating a new reality in the mobile industry. Apple and Google have effectively prevailed in the platform war, leaving OEMs without access to these ecosystems at a significant disadvantage. Users are also demanding a wide choice of innovative applications on all their digital devices: smartphones used for work and personal use, tablets and e-books, in their cars and on their TVs.
OEMs need to provide Android apps to their customers but are hesitant to relinquishing control of their branded experience and services. Enterprises want to drive productivity by providing their employees access to slick consumer applications alongside secure enterprise apps on smartphones and tablets of their choice. Virtualization solutions can solve these challenges by creating environments that are independent of the underlying OS or hardware in which to run foreign applications and guest operating systems.
This report analyzes four virtualization technologies that all take different approaches and are designed to address notably different markets. These technologies include:
- Mobile hypervisors
- Secure application containers
- Thin client and cloud solutions
- Application virtual machines
Companies mentioned include Apple, Facebook, Google, LG, Oracle, Samsung, and others.
