Why Read This Report

The rising expectations of your most valuable customers demand contextual mobile experiences. Delta Air Lines got this right by proactively serving next-step options to customers whose flights were canceled. Doling out systems data to a mobile app won't be enough; companies need to integrate situational context and operational data coming from mobile devices and systems of automation. Few companies achieve the results they seek because the architectural requirements to marry multiple internal and external systems are complex and the landscape of vendor solutions is fragmented and confusing. This report examines how different groups of vendors extend their capabilities to compete in the arms race to deliver contextual mobile apps and provides guidance for CIOs on managing the myriad solutions entering their organizations.
