In recent times mobile technology have been of great benefits, some of which not well known to many in this present time. Would like to share some with us in this steps have listed below.
1. Reductions in cost of managing health information systems. In Kenya, for example, mobile phones are being used to collect data and report on disease-specific issues from more than 175 Health Centers serving over 1 million people. This technology has reduced the cost of the country’s health information system by 25% and cut the time needed to report the information from four weeks to one week.
2.Mobile devices give individuals constant access to information, regardless of location, anytime.
3.They also provide broad social benefits such as remote access to education and health care information.
4.Smart devices help to trigger an information explosion that blurs the traditional boundaries within, and across, industries.
5.It empowers consumers and provides new and huge opportunities for businesses. It should be noted, however, that mobile technology also poses a disruptive threat to businesses and individuals that cannot flow with this trend.
OPPORTUNITIES PROVIDED BY MOBILE TECHNOLOGY
1.Given this dynamism, it is no surprise that the mobile industry makes a substantial economic contribution, with mobile operators contributed 1.4% to global GDP in 2012 and their revenues grew at a robust 2.3% p.a. to reach US$1.1 trillion in 2017. When the rest of the mobile ecosystem is included, total revenues are forecast by A.T. Kearney to reach US$2 trillion in 2017, which represents an annual growth rate of 4.7%. In support of the growth in capacity and the level of innovation, the mobile ecosystem will increase its level of annual capital expenditure by just under 4% per annum from 2012 to 2017 to US$238 billion.
2.Mobile infrastructure is now as important to a country’s economy as its energy grid or transportation network it is a key enabling infrastructure that drives and supports growth in the wider economy. The high level of investment is needed to continue the development of this infrastructure so that capacity can be built to meet the ever growing demand and so that new services can be launched which bring greater benefits to the wider economy.
