As technological differentiation becomes a moot point, the mobile enterprise solutions market is increasingly focusing on the value that application software can bring. Middleware vendors are looking to design their own application suites, while large ISVs are looking to work more closely with platform & device vendors though their fixed-line heritage is causing functionality headaches for them.

This report covers three areas: Europe, Asia-Pacific, the US. The report clarifies and explains recent market developments, detailing the models that have emerged & explaining which have long-term viability and provides strategic recommendations in light of forecast market development.

There are 3 models that have emerged for the mobilization of enterprise data: mobilization of the entire current application; mobilization of a cut- down version of the current application; mobilization of existing data with a new application front-end. It is believed that vendors adopting the third model will be most successful in this market

It is also believed the .NET CF is best positioned for success in the next 12-18 months. Compared to J2ME, .NET CF lacks complexity, is integrated across all aspects of Microsoft's solution & enables solutions with superior functionality (though Microsoft's fixed-line heritage sometimes make mobile application development somewhat problematic).

From reading this report you will understand the main differences between the .NET CF & J2ME & discover why it is believed the Java platform will continue to struggle. This report will help you to understand the key success factors that vendors addressing this market need to be aware of in order to be successful over the next 18 months.
