IDC: Mobile Enterprise Application Market to Reach $3.5 Billion by 2010
"The worldwide growth of cellular networks, the proliferation of handheld devices, and a general level of 'connection' in individuals' personal lives are quickly finding their way into the enterprise," said Mary Wardley, vice president of IDC's CRM applications research.
This study indicates that the entry into mobile enterprise applications is one that all enterprise applications vendors must consider and include in their applications portfolio to a greater or lesser extent.
In order to be successful, IDC recommends that vendors realign their understanding of the user experience in the context of mobile enterprise applications. The value to the user will be increased by what is not visible to them by virtue of the behind-the-scenes automation.
This IDC study, Worldwide Mobile Enterprise Applications 2006-2010 Forecast and Analysis defines and quantifies the market for mobile enterprise applications.
