Mobile Application Performance, Speed and an Optimized User Experience Survey

Who wants a mobile turn-by-turn navigation system that was delayed by 30 seconds?  "You should have turned," is not what I want the automated voice to say to me.  I want a real-time experience on mobile apps. The challenge is that not all back-office systems and IT environments were designed to support real-time interactions with mobile apps.

I am currently working on a research project to better understand how the requirement to support real-time interactions with mobile applications will impact IT organizations.  Would you be willing to take a short survey to contribute your observations to it?  If so, please follow the link.  All participants will receive a free copy of the final report.

Survey - http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e9hmymorhwv3wle0/start

Thanks in Advance!
