2012 Enterprise Mobility Outlook

As 2011 comes to a close and we again face the ominous task of putting together our predictions for the coming year. Considering what transpired in 2011, it is hard to imagine a year as face-paced and filled with opportunities. Clearly enterprise mobility has evolved from a niche point solution to a mainstream segment of the IT landscape. There were numerous developments that signified 2011 – from Motorola landing a large managed services contract with Sears and Lowes deploying over 40K iPhones for their store associates to the introduction of the first rugged Android-powered tablets and mobile POS gaining momentum. 2012 is promising to be just as dynamic. Some of the most influential issues and trends we believe will shape the enterprise mobility dialogue in 2012 include:

  1. Consumer vs. Enterprise Lifecycles: Security Issues Loom Large. 
  2. Mobile Payment to Reach Critical Mass…especially for Many High Growth Customer Facing Applications. 
  3. Rugged Android…Is the Market Ready?
  4. Mobility Budget/Cost Pressures Loom Large.
  5. Can RIM recover in 2012? 
  6. The Cloud Vulnerabilities Continue for Mission Critical Enterprise Mobility.

We will be posting the complete research note on our website shortly. Stay posted..
