Mumba appears in the Australian Financial Review

Mumba has been featured in the AFR this month with an article titled "Mumba gears up as mobile app demand rises." The article highlights our recent successes as mobility continues to grow within Australian enterprises.

Angelo Demasi from Boston Consulting Group mentioned in the article that "this market is definitely growing" and he expects enterprise demand for mobile apps to double in the next three years.

Accenture, Australia's mobility leader Abraham Sahley said that he expects mobile applications to become a normal part of enterprise technology however he believes the expense is currently a deterrent.

Most interestingly, the industry pundits have identified the precise issues that Mumba is currently tackling regarding the costs of development and ongoing ownership. In fact next month we are releasing our report that details the 'total cost of ownership' for an enterprise business app. Please contact us if you would like early access to this report.
