50 Open Source Tools for the Mobile Workforce

As smartphones and tablets become increasingly popular with consumers, they’re also becoming a common work tool for employees. A recent study by Dimensional Research found that 87 percent of enterprises allow employees to use personal devices for work. In addition, 80 percent of those companies allow employees to use personal smartphones for work.

In response to this growing “consumerization of IT” trend, the open source community is beginning to develop apps aimed at the mobile market. In particular, they’ve created a large number of open source development tools that can help enterprise IT departments create mobile apps. In addition, several mature open source apps now have features that enable mobile workers to use them from their smartphones or tablets.
