With the advent of smartphones a world where mobility is a must was created. If we can’t use it on the go then we don’t want it. In the recent years tablets have joined the mobile market and are growing in popularity, especially among businesses. In fact, enterprise tablet adoption will grow by almost 50% per year. In a sense, tablets are a hybrid of the smartphone and laptop but without the ability to make phone calls. Since tablets are so convenient, businesses are adopting them at a fast rate. However, the most important part of these mobile devices is the applications, without them they would be worthless.
With the demand for tablets on the rise, mobile application development will continue to grow as well. By 2015 mobile app development projects will outnumber native PC projects. This makes sense because mobile devices will outnumber “traditional computers” 2 to 1 in a network by the end of 2012.
With the rise in large businesses using tablets, enterprise applications market growth will increase as well, a 4.5% increase to be exact. Enterprise applications refer to software platforms that are too large and too complex for individual or small business use. These applications are designed to integrate with other apps within corporate networks while meeting strict requirements for security and administration management.
