Why Read This Report

Having business applications available while away from the office is nothing new; neither is using mobile devices as an integral part of a business process. Until recently, however, the former has mostly consisted of standard PC applications running on a laptop, and the latter has largely been the realm of specialist, often ruggedized mobile devices used for a single purpose, such as order tracking. The advent of smartphones and tablets has changed the dynamics of what mobility means in a business context. Whether it's executives or field engineers, knowledge workers or hospital staff, there is an increasing realization that extending business intelligence applications to mobile devices can transform entire business processes as well as individuals' work patterns. This report offers insight into how this market is developing by looking at adoption patterns and main usage scenarios. It also introduces the types of "packaged" solutions that are available in the market and who's offering them.
