Mobile application development has become a top concern for enterprises and their CIOs. According to Gartner’s 2012 CIO Survey, 61% of respondents plan to enhance their mobility capability during the next three years, and 48% believe they will become leaders in their industries by fully adopting innovative mobility solutions. Gartner further states “increasingly, enterprises are looking for a single MADP that can address most, if not all, of their future projects across all scenarios and meet requirements for B2C, B2B and B2E projects.”
