Introduction

The BYOD phenomenon has been a significant factor in shaping the boundaries of the new mobile and collaborative workplace. People are more mobile now than they ever were before. Workers now own and control a large part of their own connective infrastructure, and they are using it to give themselves unprecedented control over how, when and where they get their jobs done. In doing so, they intensify the challenge of coordinating their interactions with the counterparties and collaborators they still have to work with. In this research note, we define the emerging Mobile Collaboration market and review 13 major providers.
