Considering the current sensation for smart phones and tablet PCs, a large number of software developers are expecting a gold rush for business applications development.

A recent study from IBM indicates that tech pros from all corners of the world are expecting a huge increase in business application development for devices like Apple’s iPhone, iPad, Google Android phones and BlackBerry devices such as PlayBook and its other smart phones. According to the survey, which included 2000 pros from 87 countries, most software developers are expecting that  mobile apps development will surpass any other kind of business software development in the next three or four years.

According to Forrester Research’s senior analyst Jeffery Hammond, “Mobile devices have become and they are going become a lot more powerful than what they are today.  Software development for these devices is becoming easy, and soon there will be somewhat innumerable players trying out their luck in mobile apps development.”

Many tech-savvy users are looking for smart solutions to incorporate leads and contacts from their computer based Twitter and Facebook accounts into their cell phones.

IBM developers relations manager Jim Corgel says: “The fundamental demand here is for simple, secure and easy access to information that’s going to help people do their business without being tethered to an office.”

There will be steady growth in the development of generic mobile business applications that are directly marketed to enterprise customers. The technologies these developers are developing are not likely to crop up in online stores that seem to focus more on their consumers.
