Growth in the deployment of wireless messaging applications among large enterprises will accelerate in Western Europe through 2006 as key technology dynamics mature, according to “Wireless Enterprise Messaging in Western Europe: A Quantitative and Qualitative Study,” a recent report by Aberdeen Group. At the same time, smaller enterprises will require wireless data carriers to better market the business and technological benefits of mobile corporate messaging, a function which is not expected to surface until 2004.

"Ultimately, our research reveals that the growth of corporate mobile data market throughout Western Europe will be driven by the intersection of four critical, converging elements," says Dana Tardelli, research analyst at Aberdeen Group and author of the report. "We believe that these elements – specifically the developments in data-enabled mobile devices, prioritization of enterprise wireless data initiatives, wireless operator infrastructure and the establishment of a wireless data integration channel – have simultaneously reached a level of confidence that enterprise inhibitors have been lowered and adoption is inevitable."
