Research and advisory firm, Gartner, has released its list of technology predictions and trends for the years 2013 and beyond.
For many enterprises, the timing is right to create a next-generation mobile strategy. Although many CIOs have already implemented mobile technology, much of it has been tactical in nature. CIOs and their teams should now pursue a more strategic approach to mobile capabilities. If not, they risk making the wrong long-term investments, or, more importantly, they may miss emerging customer needs that are to become commonplace.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms announced on 26th April showed that the MADP market continues to be largely distinct from the larger application development tools market, because developing mobile applications for enterprises presents unique challenges.
Gartner has identified key mobile technologies that will impact every organization in 2012 and 2013. In general, the technologies on the top 10 list enable an improved infrastructure, more effective mobile application delivery, new business opportunities, innovative applications or experiences, and/or better management and control.
