What Mobile Software Vendor Will Oracle Buy in 2012?

I asked this question because SAP bought Sybase, IBM bought WorkLight, HP bought webOS

What mobile software vendor will Oracle buy in 2012?  This the question I asked, and sixty-six people shared their thoughts.  Here are their answers:

  • 42% - Antenna Software
  • 27% - Kony Solutions
  • 13% - Verivo (formerly Pyxis Mobile)
  • 12% - Syclo
  • 4%   - Rhomobile


I asked this question because SAP bought Sybase, IBM bought WorkLight, HP bought webOS (oops!), and it seems like Oracle must make a move into enterprise mobility soon.  The market will not wait for Oracle, so if Oracle wants to control their future they need to act.
