ISVs Ignite Social-Mobile-Cloud Fusion in the Enterprise
Although Yankee Group has seen strong interest in both supply and demand for social computing, application mobility and cloud computing, 2009 did not deliver on the fusion of all three elements. Still, strategic changes did occur within the enterprise application marketplace that are energizing the industry for positive change in 2010.
Just as nuclear fusion can be a positive change for the world, the fusion of the three elements will create a positive charge for enterprises, changing the way they learn, innovate and operate as a dynamic combination of workers, customers and partners, and energizing them to become true Anywhere Enterprises. How interested are businesses in social computing, application mobility, and cloud computing and how have suppliers helped or hindered the Anywhere Network and its transformation of the enterprise and its work force partners and customers?
