Partnering in the 3rd Platform: Spotlight on Mobility

Partnering in the 3rd Platform: Spotlight on Mobility

This IDC study is the second in a series of documents that examine the findings of IDC's most recent software partner survey, which focused on partnering in the 3rd Platform. It provides an overview of current participation in and future plans for offering mobile solutions and the reasons why partners choose to or choose not to become involved in mobile solutions and provides essential guidance to vendors that want to encourage partners to become involved in mobile technologies. "Mobility is clearly a lynchpin in 3rd Platform solutions. But the good news is that partners are well positioned to contribute to the momentum." — Marilyn Carr, director, Software Channels and Ecosystems Research
