IDC recently issued its Worldwide Business Mobile Email Forecast, looking at handsets, OSs, protocols and the like around the business market for mobile devices. In this growing segment of the collaboration marketplace, RIM and MS's ActiveSync are, as IDC says, the #1 and #2 players. What didn't quite make the press release, but is in the third summary pargraph of the report, is that IBM is the #3 player in terms of number of mobile subscribers, as measured by use of Lotus Notes Traveler. IDC further points out that IBM's share is the fastest-growing business mobile email platform in terms of number of subscribers "on the heels of stronger adoption of its IBM Lotus Notes Traveler across Symbian and iPhone (and just launched its Android beta in June 2010)."
Some good recognition for the mobile solution that just works. Great job to the Notes Traveler team!
