The original idea behind Elastic Mobile was to create secure mobile solutions for businesses and organizations to increase efficiency and flexibility. The technology was ready but few used it because of lack of skills around security and mobile technology. Richard had been working on the design of this type of solution for KLT a number of years before Elastic was born. We realized the need, and we had the solution.
The solutions we created would be in placed on cloud-based infrastructure. The cloud was also a technology that was available but not widely used at that time for the same reasons as mobile data solutions. Just before the start of Elastic Mobile, Per has been CEO of a traditional local IT operation business and understood the early changing trend for the market of IT operations when global cloud players like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google gained momentum.
In Elastic Mobile, we saw a "virtual" IT operation, highly skilled, with local support, professional operations processes but with the data centers and equipment in the IT-cloud where capacity is purchased by the hour. No investments - only variable costs for both Elastic Mobile and our customers.
During the years after Elastic Mobile started, we have seen the smartphone and app-trend come, cloud-based operations have become a obvious alternative to traditional IT operations and the concept of "cloud engineering", with expertise in cloud computing, data communications and IT security, has become established.
