Just in case you had any doubts that mobile enterprise is back and bigger than ever, check out the latest findings from Frost & Sullivan. The researcher claims that the market for mobile enterprise services in the 12 major Asia-Pacific countries (excluding Japan) will grow from $20.68 billion in 2006 to $35.51 billion by the end of 2011. That's a compound annual growth rate of 11.4%.

Right now the two biggest drivers of this growth are voice and mobile e-mail. In the future, mobilization of existing applications in vertical sectors, like shipping or logistics, is expected to help drive more growth. Other emerging applications, like mobile VoIP and fixed-mobile convergence, also will add to the mobile enterprise market in this region.

The three biggest hurdles to mobile adoption in the Asia-Pacific region remain justifying costs, return on investment, and concerns about security.
