  • 2. Mobile commerce market
    • Over $50 Billion in Europe by 2006.
    • Japan's $30 billion e-commerce market is 1/5 th the size of the market in the USA, reports Reuters.
    • The Yankee Group also predicts that the size of the U.S. mobile commerce market will reach $15 billion by 2006
    • Mobile commerce is still a nascent market with too many vendors, too many standards and too many device manufacturers.
    • Mobile is the way; Mobile is the future.
  • 3. The Future Wave...1
    • Mobile Applications & Services: The applications and services expected to generate the most revenues across a wide range of sectors.
    • ERP/DATABASE and other enterprise server based markets are saturated or "taken up" by big names like Oracle, SAP.
    • Current situation in mobile commerce industry is similar to what it was in database or enterprise application industry 20 years ago.
    • 2005-10 is ripe for visionaries to look into "unseen" and "untapped" opportunity if started early on.
    • US market lags behind Asia/ Japan and Europe in mobile computing and applications usage. Once the flood gate is opened there will be far too many players for smaller companies to compete.
    • Today in the USA Wireless service providers / carriers (not the device manufacturers) hold the sway but once they open up to 3GL and 4GL the market will be starved for “killer” applications
  • 4. The Future Wave ...2
    • The best opportunities exist in service ticket logging and project mgt. (monitoring, reporting and control) enterprise mobile softwares.
    • Financial sectors offer manifold of opportunities for
    • Mobile applications because in US human interactions are expensive and considered risk/ error prone activity.
    • SOA (service oriented architecture) enabled services are much talked about these days and developed countries want to get out of manufacturing.
    • Commitment, delivery capability, and quality are the fulcrums to climb.
