The essential guide to IT transformation

The number of Net users in the US using cell phones for wireless data applications is set to leap by a massive 75 per cent within the next year, according to research by Cap Gemini America and b2b e-outfit, Corechange. Research suggests that only three per cent of US Internauts currently use wireless gizmos to access data. The main driver to this massive leap is not becasue people can use their PDAs to access info on the move. It's not because it's a liberating experience that will enhance their lives. Instead, the primary reason for using wireless data applications is that someone else -- the boss -- will pay for it. "The wireless data application market will probably not take off until major corporations start putting integrated PC and wireless PDA application structures in place -- and fully cover the costs for operating them," explains David Ridemar, head of the strategic research group at Cap Gemini America. ®
