I conducted a workshop via webex yesterday with a mining company in Australia. It was interesting that they had a strong preference for HTML5 apps running on a cloud based mobile platform. Their thinking was that they want mobile solutions now, but they see no need to sink a lot of money into on-premise solutions and mobile platforms yet. They felt that HTML5 would give them the most flexibility and easiest implementations and deployments at this time as they mature their own mobile strategies and infrastructure and wait to see who the winners will be in the mobile platform market.
