With the global adoption of mobile technologies we are in the middle of a mobile revolution age. Devices are getting more compact, with the latest devices packing high-resolution touch screen displays, powerful-core CPU’ and GPU’s capablility, increased storage space, as well as HD video and photo cameras. Mobile devices have now become mobile work, learning and entertainment centers with hundreds of thousands of apps available to different platforms such as Android, iOS and Windows Phone.This wave of ICT innovation is driving demand for new ICT skills and abilities and the sector needs people who can design, develop and deploy new applications and services for mobile devices.

Businesses and individuals involved in mobile development in the EU alone, earned €17.5bn last year, a figure that could rise to €63bn in just five years, €6bn of last year’s estimated €17.5bn revenue paid to these mobile development businesses and individuals came from app sales, virtual goods and advertising. These figures emerged from research for the EU Commission “Eurapp project”, they highlighted that mobile development is the most “in demand” and growing areas of ICT (Information and Communications Technology) within the EU. The research also identified opportunities and bottlenecks for potential growth, it highlighted the lack of experienced developers in the areas of both mobile and web apps; as a consequence the skills for developing apps which run on mobile devices are becoming extremely sought across all business sectors. Angry Birds creator Rovio Entertainment said in the report. “You might be surprised how big a role mobile is playing within even the biggest companies whose primary business isn’t actually developing apps, it’s importance is recognised within companies involved in entertainment,financial services, retail, packaged goods, media, and so on.”
