IDC assessed 14 organizations that offer mobile application development,
testing, management, and infrastructure (mADTMI) services to
enterprise-class firms for this report.

enterprise mobile application development, testing, management, and
infrastructure (mADTMI) services through the IDC MarketScape model. The
assessment reviews both quantitative and qualitative characteristics

practice. In customer interviews, Accenture's customers cited that the
provider's strengths spanned a variety of business and technical
know-how areas…and an ability to establish and forge strong partnership
bonds with its clients.”

Our proven app testing capabilities are also of growing significance to
clients, as end-to-end testing is a requirement of a successful
Connected Devices strategy. With our skilled and experienced teams
creating innovative tools to help our clients get the most out of their
mobile apps, it’s rewarding to see that the close relationships we’ve
formed with those clients played such a key role in securing our

comes to applications,” said Pete Marston, research manager, Application
