Software Development Opportunities
"To succeed in what we expect will quickly become a very crowded category," IDC's research vice president John Jackson opines, "consumer-oriented app developers need to focus on intelligent service delivery and 'always on you' experiences that leverage the human factor improvements that smart wearable devices offer."
IDC predicts that we'll see mostly programs that connect wearable devices to smartphones in the near term. Look for standalone software as the wearable devices get smarter, and the software development community becomes more experienced.
