Cover StoryIt’s a natural law that we move away from the traditional communication systems which we are used to and adapt to new trends. I think the last time which I have texted my colleagues or my friends last would be few months ago. Thanks to WhatsApp and WeChat, that is evolving to look increasingly like text messages. I believe it’s not just for me, but its a visible trend going around us in which the communication loop has grown tighter and mobile messaging apps are gaining tremendous importance to stay connected with coworkers as its faster than e-mail. In the past two years, consumers have doubled the time spent with apps to about two hours a day. Today enterprises are serious about this sea change, to align their business goals to cash in on the trend. Hence enterprise mobility spending is taken as a serious concern by the decision makers to integrate the “mobile DNA” to their organizations.
