Antero Juntunen, Vesa Suikkola, Yrjo Raivio, Sakari Luukkainen

Abstract

Cloud computing is emerging in several ICT areas, including the mobile services industry. This development is known as mobile cloud computing (MCC). MCC may save mobile energy consumption and be utilized to overcome the fragmentation challenges of application developers, who must take into account various mobile operating systems. This paper introduces a novel mobile-device-independent development approach. Mobile applications will be placed into a cloud and will utilize open application programming interfaces from the telecom infrastructure. This approach, called Open Telco, enables application deployment that is fully based on cloud-computing principles. In this study, we present a business model analysis of an application case called Event Experience, using the Service, Technology, Organization, and Finance (STOF) framework.
