Broadbeam's ExpressQ Wireless PlatformBeing on the road and having access to corporate applications is no longer just a dream for mobile users. Technology is available, today, that can extend enterprise applications to mobile workers. Enterprises around the world are deriving improved worker productivity, improved service and return on investment from wireless enabling their applications. Consider the following:
- IDC predicts there will be 84 million wireless Internet users in the US by 2005. Business users will make up 49 million of this total, or 58%.
- According to Morgan Stanley's CIO Study in May 2002, 45% of CIOs have either developed, are in the process of developing, or are considering developing a corporatewide strategy to Internet-enable their enterprise handheld devices.
- In a market research release in March 2002, In-Stat/MDR says they expect the number of business wireless data users to grow from 6.6 million at the end of 2001, to more than 39 million in 2006.
However, enterprises face many distinct challenges when building and deploying wireless data solutions, including how to provide a rich and productive user experience for mobile employees and how to reliably and securely connect mobile devices to enterprise applications and Internet content. In addition to this challenge, the enterprise must address the realities of multiple networks, devices and protocols, and the difficulty of maintaining communications with mobile users as they move in and out of coverage. Perhaps the most significant challenge is the fact that most organizations do not have the expertise needed to develop, deploy and manage wireless applications and therefore encounter long decision-making, development and deployment cycles with many obstacles along the way.
