Mobile Enterprise Apps are Improving Productivity

I've recently shared details about the renewed interest in enterprise mobile data applications. That interest has included both internal and and external mobile service applications. A desire to enhance employee productivity is often at the core of this market development activity.

According to the latest ABI Research industry vertical market analysis of mobile enterprise customers, global services business revenues are forecast to grow at a 4.3 percent CAGR over the next four years, reaching $133 billion by 2014.

Enterprise practice director Dan Shey says, "Mobile revenue growth for services businesses is driven by data usage. Mobile messaging, information access and applications delivered to the growing cadre of enterprise mobile devices help employees in this sector improve productivity, and serve and win customers."

Moreover, data services including text and email messaging, applications (apps), and data plans are a growing portion of this sector's revenues. Currently the mobile data related-service share of total mobile services revenues has already reached 32 percent -- by 2014 it will reach 42 percent.

However, while the services sector employs over twice as many people as industrial businesses, its share of mobile services revenues varies widely by region. But there's the apparent global upside opportunity.

For instance, for North America and Western Europe, the service sector will constitute 83 percent of all enterprise mobile services revenues and grow at a CAGR of 4.6 percent by 2014.

In contrast, the services sector in all other regions including Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa will equal 65 percent of enterprise mobile services revenues and grow at a more modest 3.3 percent CAGR through 2014.

Linux Phone Standards Forum

A new Linux Phone Standards Forum (LiPS) has been founded to promote mass market adoption of Linux telephony terminals through standardization, interoperability testing and market education. The founding members include Cellon, France Telecom, FTM Labs, Huawei, Jaluna, Mizi, Open Plug and PalmSource. LiPS will support device manufacturers and operators in bringing to market Linux-based devices at lower cost (due to lower deployment costs through standardization), while facilitating the programming and development process for software and silicon vendors. The Forum said plans to work with other organizations such as the OMTP and OMA to identify requirements of distinct device categories including smartphones, feature phones, fixed-line, or converged devices. For each of these categories, or profiles, LiPS will define standard API�s that support relevant applications and services as well as a certification process for technology providers.

Cloud Services Gain New Momentum in Europe

Across European nations, more CIOs and CTOs are investing in public cloud services that become the essential foundation for the design and delivery of innovative digital transformation projects. Public cloud computing spending in Europe will reach $113 billion in 2022 and will double to $239 billion by 2026, growing at a 22 percent 5-year CAGR, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Investments in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) will continue to lead most of the spending in Public Cloud in Europe in 2022, but Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) will be the fastest-growing segment.

Strategic Digital Transformation Spending Trends

Looking ahead, many Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) continue to selectively invest in new strategic digital transformation projects that enable a significant competitive advantage. Some additional investments may go towards improving existing IT infrastructure and operations.  Worldwide IT spending is now projected to total $4.5 trillion in 2022 -- that's an increase of 3 percent from 2021, according to the latest updated estimate by Gartner. For now, most CIOs will be relieved that their budget is safe from major cuts. While IT spending is expected to grow in 2022, it will be at a slower pace than in 2021 -- partly due to a 5 percent cutback on spending for personal computers, media tablets, and printers.
