IT organizations will spend More on Mobile Apps

Based on a recent survey of 295 senior-level enterprise mobility professionals conducted by Enterprise Mobility Exchange and published in February 2015, mobile applications were the top investment priority for organisations in 2014, and will continue in this position in 2015.

IDC LOGOIt has been clear for some time that the demand for enterprise mobile apps will continue on its steep upwards trajectory as the C-suite acknowledges the intersection of cloud, social media, big data and analytics as an opportunity to disrupt existing business models to increase revenue.

Gartner predicts the market for enterprise application software to reach an astronomical worth of $575billion by the end of 2018.

To support this, according to IDC, IT organisations will be devoting at least 25% of their software budget to mobile application development, deployment, and management by 2017. IDC also forecasts that by 2017, 100% of the line of business apps in customer-facing roles, and 75% of line of business apps in internally-facing roles, will be built for mobile-first consumption.
