How Many Enterprise Workers Will Work in the Mobile Cloud? Try 130 Million

Juniper Research has come out with more analysis that shows just how big the mobile enterprise market will be for cloud computing.

According to Juniper, the advent of collaboration tools will mean that 130 million enterprise workers will use the mobile cloud by 2014.

The steep climb will be in part due to the Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings from companies like Google and Microsoft.

The rise is already evident as more people adopt smartphones. In particular, Juniper points to the iPhone and the App store as catalysts for the growth. People are using their iPhones to use a variety of applications for the work they do.The report also cites the iPhone user interface and how it has spurred adoption and lead to a higher level of quality in smartphones across the wider market.

The report also cites how cloud computing providers have opened up their API’s, which in turn has attracted waves of developers. The benefits to developer and customers are cited as reasons why we will see the surge. Developers can easily deploy applications to the cloud. And the greater variety of offerings drives a higher customer base.

In February, Juniper predicted that mobile cloud computing will grow to $9.5 billion by 2014.
