There is an overwhelming need for individuals who can create mobile applications that connect to the cloud. Below are some quotes from a couple of the largest technology research analyists in the world.
“Juniper Research expects the total market for cloud-based mobile apps to grow 88 percent between 2009 and 2014. About 75 percent of that market will be enterprise users, Juniper predicts.”
“Cloud computing, social networking, mobile applications and devices as well as video will be some of the top strategic technology trends in 2011, according to analyst firm, – Gartner.”
“The analyst firm revealed the PC market was dwarfed by the handset market. It predicts by 2014 about 450 million mobile PCs will be shipped as well as 1.9 billion handsets.” – Gartner
“IBM’s annual global Tech Trends survey identified cloud computing and mobile application development as the hottest tech trends and most sought-after IT skills for the next five years. An overwhelming majority of survey respondents (91 percent) expect cloud computing to overtake on-premise computing as the primary IT delivery model by 2015. More than half (55 percent) of survey respondents believe that in the same amount of time, the need to develop applications for mobile devices (such as Android, iPhone, iPad and PlayBook) will far surpass the need to develop software for traditional PCs and servers. These trends will impact IT jobs and the skills needed to do them. ” – ITWorld Canada
