IDC analysts predict that the mobile application development market will
continue to grow significantly in the coming years, with millions of apps
serving users in numerous aspects of services, information, content and
experiences in the enterprise and consumer environment. Over the course of the
next 4 years the MADP (Mobile Application Development Platform) market is
expected to grow substantially reaching $4.8 billion.
GO!AppZone follows the same licensing model as GO!Enterprise Reach and
Mobilizer, which has already contributed significantly to the overall
GO!Enterprise segment. Going forward, the addition of GO!AppZone represents a
clear differentiation from rival MEM offerings to position Globo for enhanced
growth in both the BYOD and Applications arenas.

GO!Enterprise at the end of 2012. Since then we have built a significant
understanding of the momentum of this market and we have invested

developer for all kinds of apps, Enterprise or Consumer.
