Overview:
Virtualization technology is a game-changer that
is accelerating innovation across the “Internet of things”—from smartphones to
feature phones, and from M2M devices to connected cars.

In countries
such as India and China, mobile virtualization enables OEMs to offer
feature-rich devices at an affordable price point. In mature markets, it is
enabling consumers to bring their own device (BYOD) to work without the
associated security risks to the enterprise network and corporate intellectual
property.

IDC believes that the benefits of virtualization technology
can be significant to manufacturers and operators, and that an unprecedented
opportunity awaits in expanding use of virtualization beyond smartphones and
tablets to the growing number of wirelessly connected devices, sensors, machines
and automotive vehicles. IDC believes that by 2020, approximately 30 billion
devices will be connected, each requiring cost-effective use of software and
hardware resources, efficient integration with legacy systems, enhanced security
and faster time to market. Mobile virtualization is the answer.

This
webinar brings together industry experts from IDC, ARM and Red Bend Software to

next-generation smartphones, connected devices and automotive vehicles. The
