Ninety Percent of IT Managers Planning New Mobility Applications

Yesterday Ian Thain from Sybase reported these findings from a recent Kelton Research survey:
  • Ninety percent of IT Managers surveyed are planning to implement new mobile applications.
  • Nearly one in two believe that successfully managing mobile applications will top their priority list.
  • Twenty-one percent are looking to introduce 20+ mobile applications into their organizations.
This is BIG news!  Earlier this week in an interview with T.L. Neff from Pyxis Mobile, T.L. also reported that customers are planning multiple mobile application deployments.  What does this mean?  It means good news for companies that are in the EMM (enterprise mobility management) and MDM (mobile device management) market.  This information also matches up with the opinions and predictions that Bryan Whitmarsh from Sybase made in his recent interview.

Products like Sybase's Afaria, Syclo's Agentry Analytics (see short video) and B2M's mProdigy are set to play more important roles in 2011 than in any previous year.
