Design and Develop Mobile Applications with Innovation Labs
The enterprise mobility market is expected to grow dramatically due to the rapid adoption of new technologies that enable businesses to connect with their workforce, customers and suppliers from anywhere at any time. Letâ€™s look at some of the enterprise mobility market predictions.
By 2016, there will be 1 billion Smartphone/tablet consumers. Moreover, of the 1 billion, 20 million will be at the enterprise level. As far as mobile applications market is concerned, it will reach $55 billion. By 2015, mobile workers will account for 15% of all the global workers across different verticals such as healthcare, retail, manufacturing, transportation, chemicals, and petroleum. (Forrester)
By 2016, 50% of the enterprise email users will depend largely on a browser, tablet, or mobile client instead of a desktop client. This point to the fact that by 2015 mobile app development projects aimed at Smartphones and tablets will exceed native PC projects by a ratio of 4:1. (Gartner)
By 2017, Global Enterprise Mobility Market would exceed US$ 173.9 billion. â€œGrowing mobile worker population, emergence of sophisticated mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones and introduction of several novel business applications will drive the market for enterprise mobility over the next few years.â€?

Hence, to capitalize on enterprise mobility, businesses and ISVs must build applications with the following characteristics:
Intuitive and user-friendly Support heterogeneous mobile environments (i.e., devices, OS, carriers, etc.) Integrate with backend systems Easy to install and manage Meet stringent corporate security policies
Enterprises can develop mobile applications by partnering with global leaders who have their own Enterprise Mobility technology centers. These innovation labs design, develop and support cutting-edge enterprise applications on a wide range of mobile platforms such as iPhone, Android and BlackBerry in verticals such as Healthcare Retail Finance
Their capabilities include: AdvisoryTechnology
