WHY MOBILE MATTERS TO ENTERPRISES
WHAT IS DRIVING GROWTH IN MOBILE ENTERPRISE? DYNAMICS DRIVING MOBILE ENTERPRISE GROWTH SOURCE: Tech Pro Research, Pew Research Center, IDC 2 BYOD TAKES HOLD 3 MORE MONEY FOR MOBILE 4 4 1 WORKERS LOVE IT THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT Nearly half of workers state that their mobile device is very or somewhat important for their work. Businesses are increasingly allowing workers to use their own mobile devices for work. 74% of organizations have or plan to have bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies in place. Enterprise spending on mobility-related technologies is expected to more than double over the next five years. As mobile budgets grow, entrepreneurs are focusing more on building mobile applications for business. As a result, there are more apps available to solve a wide range of business challenges.

MOBILE ENTERPRISE APPS: LANDSCAPE TRENDS § The number of mobile enterprise application companies has grown by 20% in the last year § While this isn’t a high growth rate, it is similar to the early days of SaaS when entrepreneurs were learning to capitalize on a new platform and the pace of company creation was modest. § Industry-focused apps are playing a prominent role § Approximately 1/3 of the companies on the landscape focus on specific industries. This is different from the early days of SaaS when nearly all companies were cross-industry. § Early M&A has centered around productivity apps • Microsoft has played a prominent role having acquired three productivity-focused mobile enterprise companies to date (6Wunderkinder, Sunrise, and Acompli).

MOBILE ENTERPRISE APPS: FUNDING TRENDS § Early stage funding is taking off § Annual dollars invested in early stage mobile enterprise app companies has grown at a CAGR of 38% over the last 5 years. § Several late stage breakout companies are emerging § Beyond well-known names such as Box, Square, and Slack, other companies such as Doximity and ServiceMax are approaching “unicorn” status. § Several landscape categories have been particularly appealing to investors • Productivity app companies have been the largest recipients of capital. Payments, healthcare, and sales/marketing have also seen meaningful investor interest.
MOBILE ENTERPRISE ENABLERS § Emergence publishes a landscape of mobile enterprise enabler companies annually • Our first landscape was published this year and includes 220 companies. § The landscape is segmented by problems that application developers are aiming to solve § Sometimes an enabler might help its customers solve multiple problems. In this case, we show the enabler in what we feel is its “primary” problem solving area.

MOBILE ENTERPRISE ENABLERS: LANDSCAPE TRENDS § Judging by the number of companies in each landscape category, user engagement and development efficiency are key pain points in mobile § Over half of the companies on the landscape are focused in these two areas. § Acquisition activity has been heaviest in analytics § Many mobile analytics companies continue to emerge, which may suggest app developers’ analytics needs are still evolving. § The user acquisition and monetization categories are surprisingly uncrowded • These are clearly areas of interest for app developers. Big problem plus minimal competition could be opportunity for entrepreneurs.

MOBILE ENTERPRISE ENABLERS: FUNDING TRENDS § Early stage funding of mobile enterprise enablers is accelerating § Dollars raised by enablers in 2014 nearly doubled from 2013. § Many of the later-stage enablers service both mobile and web developers § This is unsurprising as many app companies have both mobile and web-based interfaces to their applications. Additionally, many leading enablers that started as web-only have added good mobile capabilities to their offerings. § Analytics, deep linking, and telephony categories have received the most funding • Payments and development platforms have also seen heavy investment.
WHAT’S NEXT? PREDICTIONS & OPPORTUNITIES
WE PREDICT THREE AREAS OF GROWTH FOR MOBILE ENTERPRISE 1 DESK EXTENSION Continued growth of “horizontal” mobile apps, many focused on productivity improvements. 2 DESKLESS ENTERPRISE Expanding use of mobile apps for non-desk workers, with a focus on key verticals such as healthcare, construction, and field service. 3 GLOBAL MOBILE Adoption of mobile enterprise applications in emerging markets that are inherently mobile-first. These applications will be some of the first business apps used in these markets.
