The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Collaboration, Q3 2011

Why Read This Report

Mobile collaboration means putting collaboration workloads onto all-important smartphones and tablets, then delivering a great user experience anywhere, anytime, on any device. This is a high bar to clear, but we found 13 vendors able to clear it. In Forrester's 15-criteria evaluation of mobile collaboration vendors, we found that Adobe, Box, Cisco, IBM, salesforce.com, SugarSync, Skype, and Yammer led the pack because of their commitment to tablets and smartphone platforms as well as a strategy aligned with the needs of the mobile workforce: low latency, cloud reach, and platform support. We also found many Strong Performers — AT&T, Citrix, Dropbox, Evernote, and Google. In this handpicked group of mobile collaboration vendors, no vendor slipped into the Contender or Risky Bet categories — at least as it relates to mobile support.
