Mobility market perspective and IBM’s mobile portal accelerator solution

  3. 3. Enterprise Mobility Drives Productivity and User Satisfaction: Market Viewpoints &quot;Mobility is here to stay, and investment in tools to better support mobile and remote users represents a significant upside for the business as a whole.&quot; In fact, according to the Forrester study, 91% of enterprises with manual mobile support processes believe the ability to connect to a remote user's devices would be a key IT investment. Improved worker and executive management satisfaction with IT is cited as a primary benefit (78%), with increased productivity of remote workers (72%) and IT efficiency (67%) also ranking highly. Source: Forrester: Remote Support Increases Staff Effectiveness Published on Oct 16, 2009 &quot;Similar to 2008, mobility initiatives at enterprises will be a priority — even in a down market. In 2008, Forrester’s survey results show that between 40% and 60% of enterprises in North America and Europe identified more mobility support to employees, implementation of fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) solutions, and formalization of a mobile strategy as critical priorities...... Why? Mobile applications and solutions let enterprises cut costs and improve employee productivity or worker efficiency — all important initiatives in a constrained business environment.

  4. 4. Enabling Enterprise Mobility Considerations: Market Perspectives Mobile Web a ‘Missed Opportunity’ Tara Seals - Nov 2, 2009 .... .only 1 percent of Web sites have capabilities specifically designed for mobile. And that translates into a generally poor wireless Web experience for users, and a big missed opportunity for operators, content owners and advertisers alike. Sure, those with smartphones and full Web browsers can navigate to any site on the Internet; but limitations within the handsets or within the operating system (i.e., lack of Flash support in the iPhone) can render Web sites that have been created for desktop use pale shadows of themselves when viewed on a wireless device. And, every device has its own specific way of rendering content, so a BlackBerry user might see a regular Web site as having overly large type, while a Droid user might have trouble viewing embedded images. Or, vice versa. .....Done correctly, the mobile opportunity itself is large, according to Gartner, which projects mobile ad spending worldwide to grow a full 74 percent this year to $913.5 million. By 2013, the research firm expects mobile ad spending to surpass $13 billion. Squeezing Web Sites Onto Cellphones Wall Street Journal - Dec 2, 2009 ...The move to mobile isn't without challenges. Companies have to decide whether to create a barebones site accessible by even the most basic handset, or opt for a flashier application accessible by select smart phones. Different phones, screen sizes and platforms create headaches for site designers.....
