visiongain intelligence: Wireless enterprise spend will triple by 2008

visiongain intelligence has issued a new report that predicts worldwide wireless enterprise spending will "rise from $50 billion in 2005, as operators, handset manufacturers, enterprises and other companies begin to adopt more coherent strategies." Enterprises of varying size and location are also "embracing wireless services in multiple ways and spending is set to increase to more than $130 billion in 2008 for enterprise wireless hardware, software and services."

Nancee Ruzicka at visiongain said, “While some of the issues that have prevented widespread deployment of data services have been resolved, most enterprises remain organised around separate IT and telecoms functions. This corporate lack of organisational and operational convergence makes enterprise wireless implementations risky, expensive, and less likely to succeed."
