"Organizations have grown more mature with mobility. But while mobile maturity has blossomed, extending mobile applications to a larger percentage of the application portfolio continues to be a major enterprise initiative, and organizations continue to seek assistance from third-party services firms to help accomplish their mobility goals. IDC expects mobile progression to be strong for the next several years as organizations look to further digitize large portions of their application portfolio to expand customer relationships, reduce costs, and drive competitiveness." — Pete Marston, research director, Application Development, Testing, and Management Services (ADTMS) at IDC
