More than 130 million business users could be in the mobile cloud by 2014

The number of business users accessing cloud-based applications from mobile devices will rise to more than 130 million by 2014, according to Juniper Research.

It says the Apple iPhone and Apple's App Store can take credit for boosting the market for connected enterprise apps, with the number of enterprise apps increasing and apps becoming more attractive.

While most cloud-based application revenue over the next five years is expected to come from enterprise applications, consumer applications will generate more than a quarter of the anticipated $9.5 billion (£5.9 billion) revenue by 2014.

Dr Windsor Holden, who wrote the report, said "A cloud-based ecosystem for enterprise apps will be attractive both for developers and enterprises alike. For developers, cloud opens up a far wider potential audience for their products; for enterprise customers, outsourcing application management to a remote third-party, costed on a scalable, pay-per-use basis, offers far more flexibility combined with a significant reduction in capital expenditure."
