Rich Miner, a partner at Google Inc.’s venture-capital arm and a co-founder of the company’s Android mobile-operating system, said he expects to see a new “wave” of enterprise applications for tablets.
Mr. Miner said corporate CIOs are mastering mobile-device management and learning to safely use consumer apps like Dropbox.
They are now ready for the “next level” of mobile applications that will reshape industries such as trucking and construction, he said.
“Now that [developers] realize there are tens of millions of workers with smartphones,” Mr. Miner said, “you’re going to see a wave of what was traditionally enterprise and SAS-based applications for tablets.”
