Mobility - business driver or disrupter? [ITWeb]
(ITWeb Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) At the ITWeb Mobility Summit 2014, Accenture's Suren Govender will unpack why and when business leaders should go mobile.
By 2017, mobile apps will be downloaded more than 268 billion times, generating revenue of more than $77 billion and making apps one of the most popular computing tools for users across the globe, says Gartner.
As a result, Gartner predicts that mobile users will provide personalised data streams to more than 100 apps and services every day.
"Mobile apps have become the official channel to drive content and services to consumers. From entertainment content to productivity services, from quantified-self to home automation, there is an app for practically anything a connected consumer may want to achieve," says Brian Blau, research director at Gartner.
The growth here sees mobility having the potential to become either a major disruptive force or a real business driver, depending on how business and technology leaders approach the changes required, which span the enterprise from back-end systems to front-end contact with both external and internal customers.
