This IDC study covers the relative size, growth, and decline patterns for "packaged" mobile enterprise applications software. Market trends such as the rise of the 3rd Platform, "mobile first" application development methodologies, and software industry transformation all play a role in the trajectory of revenue in this forecast.
"Mobile first is the development priority of many/most software providers," said Amy Konary, research vice president for Software Licensing and Pricing with IDC. "New market entrants are leveraging their inherently mobile and cloud-based architectures for rapid deployment. Traditional players are building mobile enterprise applications to help modernize on-premises legacy applications."
