Revenue associated with mobile workers using enterprise business apps on
mobile devices is expected to nearly double over the next 5 years as a

"The consumer mobile experience has taught mobile workers to expect,
even demand, access to information and applications from anywhere using
mobile devices," commented Mark Levitt, Director of Business
Cloud Strategies research at Strategy Analytics. "Mobile workers
have moved beyond just mobile email and messaging to include other
collaboration apps such as conferencing, productivity apps such as
content authoring, and business process apps such as CRM and even ERP."
"The business imperative for workers to be productive while on the way
to, from and at customer and other remote work sites is driving the
rapid mobilization of business apps. Growth in secure application
distribution through mobile device and application management (MDM and
