Rating: research2guidance looks at ‘off the shelf’ apps
The number of enterprise-relevant apps has doubled from 100,000 to 200,000 over the past 12 months (Q1 2011 to Q1 2012), according to research2guidance.

There will definitely be a market for mobilising core enterprise functions, like sales and services,” says Ralf-Gordon Jahns, research director with research2guidance.

(See our previous story here). Continue reading

Today sees the official announcement that Antenna has bought out Volantis – a company that does much the same thing, just on the mobile internet.
A US-based company called LOC-AID claims that mobile location is undergoing a game-change – wireless carriers have decided to get in the game. They’re opening their core location information to developers, allowing third parties to build carrier location into their services. And LOC-AID is the gateway to that information – it’s a single source of location information from every major American carrier, making the location of over 300 million wireless subscribers in North American and Mexico. We talked to Rip Gerber, President & CEO of LOC-AID Technologies, to get a better idea of how it works. Continue reading
