Forrester Reveals Wave for Mobile Collaboration

Mobile and how it changes the workforce remains high on Forrester’s research agenda with one of its latest reports: The Forrester Wave: Mobile Collaboration, Q3 2011. This is the first Wave for mobile collaboration.

Forrester looked at a number of factors, including enterprise readiness and cross-platform support. The firm only considered cloud-based apps with native applications available for more than one mobile operating system, which caused several vendors’ products to be left out (including Microsoft SharePoint and RIM BlackBerry Messenger) to be left out.

The decision to include only cloud-based apps is explained by Forrester’s previous report Mobilize Your Collaboration Strategy.

  • Forrester actually creates custom Waves based on customer needs. For example, a customer that needed strong enterprise controls and BlackBerry (and only BlackBerry) support would probably end up with a different Wave than this one.
  • This list obviously doesn’t always compare apples to apples. Box, Skype and Evernote are three very different applications.
