Mobile Cloud Market to Be Worth $1 Trillion by 2017, Heavy Reading Finds

Incorporating attributed derived revenue and indirect revenue as well as direct revenue effects, the mobile cloud will explode into a $1 trillion market by 2017, new report says

BOSTON, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The mobile cloud will explode into a $1 trillion market by 2017 – when considering the broader market, including attributed derived revenue and indirect revenue, as well as direct service revenue – according to a major new research report from Heavy Reading (www.heavyreading.com) and its research partner, BSG Advisory.

The Mobile Cloud Market & Outlook to 2017 offers a compelling forecast of the mobile cloud's coming dominance in the communications sphere. The report primarily focuses on direct mobile cloud revenues for services, along with the overall economic impact of the mobile cloud, including attributed and indirect revenue effects. The report also identifies five major changes the mobile cloud will drive and five major issues facing the development and growth of the mobile cloud.

The new report is the fourth and final entry in The Mobile Cloud Survival Series, a report service from Heavy Reading and BSG Advisory that addresses one of the biggest issues that will affect the entire telecom ecosystem over the next 10 to 15 years: the development and deployment of infrastructure and technologies to enable mobile cloud services. The series includes four major reports, each of which focuses on a critical aspect of mobile cloud development.

"Cloud computing will be the single biggest technological driver for national economic growth in developed economies over the next five years, and the mobile cloud is the biggest element of cloud computing," notes Victor Schnee, president of BSG Advisory and co-author of the report with Alfred Boschulte, chairman of BSG. "This dynamic growth will be heavily oriented toward the personal/consumer cloud. All information and communication technology market leaders therefore need a successful mass-market cloud strategy."

Schnee and Boschulte are widely recognized and respected telecom industry thought leaders with a proven track record for analyzing and anticipating disruptive changes that have shaped and reshaped the telecom ecosystem over the past three decades. Schnee has written 10 major industry studies, including a 2001 report that predicted the convergence of telecom, mobile and Internet services; and a 2011 report that anticipated the explosive growth of mobile apps. Boschulte served as chairman and CEO of Nynex Mobile (now part of Verizon Wireless) and was a founder and managing director of Excelcomindo (now PT XL Axiata), a major mobile operator in Indonesia.

This report provides a five-year forecast for mobile cloud for key elements, including physical network elements, middleware, applications and services. Forecasts include market projections by user segment (enterprise, SMB, consumer). It analyzes the strategies and options available to players in all of the key segments of the mobile cloud ecosystem: network operators, equipment suppliers, application developers, device manufacturers, platform providers and middleware companies.

The Mobile Cloud Market & Outlook to 2017 costs $4,995 and is published in PDF format. The price includes an enterprise license covering all of the employees at the purchaser's company.

The Mobile Cloud Survival Series includes an enterprise license for all four reports in the series and costs $12,995.
