2INFORMATION SYSTEMTask 1IntroductionCloud computing and mobile computing are the practices that are used for the samepurpose and usually works on information and data transfer that is done on a wireless basis(Rittinghouse, and Ransome 2016). Though both are the same practices, even then there aresome key differences between both of them. Primarily cloud computing is considered as atechnology which allows information and data through wireless connection mainly over somedistributed networks send to remote location (Rahimi et al. 2014). All these processes aremanaged and maintained by some cloud provider.On the other hand, the concept of mobile computing is mainly related to newinterfaces and new devices. Mainly the users access the information and data via browsers inmobile computing (Sridhar 2016). The technology of mobile computing has many differentfunctions which supports different applications with the core operating system and alsoprovides intuitive icons that are uses for searching the technologies and all other commandson the mobile (Agrawal and Zeng 2015). Both the technologies have to ability to serve morethan one user at the same time.This report consists of a detailed comparison between the cloud computing andmobile computing. All the differences regarding their working and structure are elaborated indetails.Comparison between mobile computing and cloud computingMobile computing is considered as a technology which allows data transmissionalong with video transmission and voice transmission through computer or other devices thatare wireless without having actual connection with the physical link (Sanaei et al. 2014). The

Mobile devices suchas tablets and smartphones offers more features as compared to traditional laptops anddesktops (Luan et al. 2015). The function of mobile computing includes access of internet viabrowsers, supports many application software with core operating system, and then sends andreceives many types of dataThe operating system mainly supports the users that providesintuitive icons, technology search that are mostly familiar and also command son the touchscreens.When compared to mobile computing, cloud computing is a practice that usesnetwork to the remote servers that are hosted on Internet for storing, processing, andmanaging the data which cannot be done on local server or on personal computers (Wan et al.2014). New designing of technologies and services are mainly specified by the cloudcomputing which allows the data that are sent over the distributed networks via wirelessconnection to a location that are remotely secured. The connections are maintained by thevendor who provides cloud computing. Many clients are served by the cloud service at thesame time. The cloud network arranges the access of network between the closed network orthe clients and their systems of data storage or data backups. The vendors of the cloud systemare allowed to intake all the data that are sent on the network and has the ability to store thedata securely. The vendors also have to deliver the data to the client back when the users needthem.Mobile computing is considered as a service of consumer while the service of cloudcomputing is used by companies and the businesses. Many big businesses and smallbusinesses uses particular techniques of cloud computing so that the individuals get benefitedfrom the service of cloud computing. Enterprises uses most advanced services of cloudcomputing and are most sophisticated technique(Abolfazli et al. 2014).. larger industries usesthe service of cloud to manage different processes that includes management of supply chain,
