According to Gina Luk, Senior Analyst of Mobile Workforce Strategies and author of the report, "Mobile CRM, data growth and the need to manage large amounts of data, such as transactions records and multimedia, are driving the uptake of corporate mobile SaaS."

"The emergence of cloud BI and analytics has prompted this evolution. Large enterprises, for the most part, have still been reluctant to adopt cloud BI and analytics solutions, especially on mobile devices, as these solutions continue to lack the best-of-breed capabilities found in premises-based solutions. However, as enterprises tackle new challenges around capturing, storing, and analyzing "Big Data", they are increasingly going to look at mobile cloud-based solutions," added Andrew Brown, Executive Director of Enterprise Research at Strategy Analytics.
