BYOD in Enterprise Applications and Cloud Environment: Challenges and Market Opportunities 2013 - 2018
Bring your own device (BYOD) has become one of the most popular topics in information technology resulting from employees bringing their personal devices into the enterprise and then wanting to use them to access company information such as email and various enterprise files.
Clearly, the consumerization of enterprise IT is a movement that is not a fad. Rather, it’s a trend that is going to sweep over all of enterprise computing for decades to come. ‘Consumerization of enterprise IT’ means how enterprises are dealing with the employee using a number of consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets (and other devices) in the enterprise. BYOD has helped create great new software and services that enable the employee and the company to get what each wants: a simple and easy way to manage consumer and enterprise utilization.

Mind Commerce Publishing's research methodology encompasses input from a wide variety of sources.
We rely heavily upon our Subject Matter Experts (SME) in terms of their market knowledge, unique perspective, and vision. We utilize SME industry contacts as well as previous customers and participants in our market surveys and interactive interviews.
In addition, we rely upon our extensive internal database, which contains modeling, qualitative analysis, and quantitative data. We review secondary sources and compare to our primary sources to update previous findings (for prior version reports) and/or compile baseline information for technology and market modeling.
We share preliminary models with industry contacts (select previous clients, experts, and thought leaders) to verify the veracity of initial modeling. Prior to final report production (analysis, findings, and conclusions), we engage in an internal review with internal SMEs as well as cross-expertise, senior staff members to challenge results.
We believe that forecasts should be prepared as part of an integrated process which involves both quantitative as well as qualitative factors. We follow the following 3-step process for forecasting.
Step 1 - Forecasts Input:
The inputs for the present and historical revenues are derived from industry players. Financial and other quantitative data for individual sub-market categories are derived from original research and tested with interviews with major industry constituents.
Step 2 - Forecasting of Future Years:
Mind Commerce extends forecasts based on a variety of factors including demand drivers as well as supply side data. Key success factors and assumptions are considered.
Step 3 - Validation of Data:
The final step is to validate projections, which is accomplished in consultation with both internal and external industry experts, including both topic and regional experts. Adjustments are made to the forecasts based on factors identified throughout this process.
