"While IT remains the chief sponsor of enterprise mobility consulting services in an enterprise, the interest in and buying power of lines-of-business heads and the CMO's office for enterprise mobility consulting projects are almost the same. Therefore, it's ever more critical for enterprise mobility consulting providers to be able to penetrate both the IT and the business leads within their client base to succeed in winning deals in the enterprise mobility consulting space." — Ali Zaidi, senior research analyst, IT Consulting and Systems Integration Services
