Constellation Research, Inc. the research and advisory firm focused on helping organizations understand technological disruption today announced the publication of "Inclusion Layer Products Enter the Market” by Constellation Principal Analyst and Vice President, J. Bruce Daley. The report explores a new class of products from Amazon Web Services, Salesforce.com, and aMind Solutions that is creating an 'Inclusion Layer' between traditional software stacks. A complimentary snapshot of this report is published on the Constellation website.
This report discusses:
- The potential of mass market mobile devices to lower IT spend and increase user satisfaction;
- The maintenance nightmare being created by bring your own devices (BYOD) to work policies;
- How some companies are taking the lead in addressing the mobile device management problem;
- The benefits of an 'Inclusion Layer' approach for end users, developers, IT, consultants and third party software companies;
- Benchmarks so other companies can gauge their progress against the market leaders.
Products like Salesforce1, AppStream, and aMind Web and Mobile Frameworks belong to a new layer of infrastructure built in the cloud above standard software stacks - the inclusion layer. The new level is called an inclusion layer because it allows devices and applications to be included together to form compound applications that can be run on mass market devices such as mobile phones or tablets.
“The current approach of bring your own technology to work is creating a maintenance burden only the very largest IT organizations will be able to address,” noted J. Bruce Daley, VP and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research. “Fortunately a number of companies have begun working on solving this problem. In the process they are creating an innovative new class of software that will disrupt the market and create new career and business opportunities.”
“The market and even most analysts have been confused about where products like Salesforce1 fit into the picture”, said R “Ray” Wang. “This report offers a new way of thinking this kind of software and how IT and the industry will benefit from them.”
