– Senthil Krishnapillai, Director of Product Management at Sybase (www.sybase.com), says:

More and more, enterprises are encountering a growing interest from employees in having mobile access to business data and we’re seeing a the trend of employee owned and purchased devices being allowed inside the corporate firewall.

A combination of users bringing their choice of mobile device and well-known enterprise applications is lowering the learning curve because users already are familiar with the application and the ins and outs of their device. So they are much more likely to test and explore the application without needing as much assistance from IT. Employees already see themselves as adept users of both their smartphones and the applications on them.
