Gartner’s 2012 and 2013 Expectations1. In 2012, we will look for the social networking capabilities that field services management vendors integrate.2. In 2012 we will look for the use of advanced analytics in field service processes.3. Another disruptive element in mobile is HTML5 and the possibility to support disconnected field service applications without having to resort to native code development.
