How big is the enterprise mobility market?
asked May 8, 2012
I’m interested in getting a sense of the scale of the enterprise mobility market…any help would be appreciated. Scale in terms of dollars in particular as well as future projections. Thanks!
Think I recently read there is somewhere around 100 companies providing some form of enterprise mobility software??
Question is, what's the long term viability of the dozens that seem to be popping up month-to-month? We recently held a free webinar and talked a little bit about the growing trend and needs for enterprise mobility management, which you can view when you have some time. The first third to one-half of the webinar are used to discuss the mobility landscape. Hope that helps some!
