Acquisition frenzy for BYOD companies – has it started?

Image The news that Oracle had acquired Bitzer Mobilea provider of mobile applications management solutions, passed relatively quietly on Friday afternoon. The news was partly obscured by some decent IPO performances in the last week (Twitter and Zulily) but also obscured by the expectation in the industry that the acquisition frenzy is about to begin.

There are over 125 Mobile Device management firms in business and with the new class of Mobile application management rising the market for all of these firms does not exist.

Expect to see a lot more acquisitions in the news over the next 4 months, Good perhaps one of the biggest enterprise players that must be being eyed up by large IT product and services companies.
