Mobile cloud applications are set to make deep inroads into the small and midsize business market, according to a cloud computing research report from IT research firm AMI-Partners. The research suggested that the expansion of mobile cloud (the use of mobile applications hosted by third-party providers) is being driven by the rapid growth in the number and utility of cloud applications, and by the cost savings and relative ease of use they offer. Above and beyond application provider revenues, telcos are expected to generate additional mobile data-driven revenues as well, the report concluded.
