“By 2014, more than 70% of Global 2000 organizations will have at least one gamified application, driving 50% of all innovation.” –study from Gartner, Inc.
There are many similar quotes and predictions from sources such as Gartner and Forrester. Gamification represents a software design choice proven to drive user engagement with business systems and applications. While some purport that Gamification may be a temporary fad, integration of gaming elements into business solutions has been a practice for many years. It’s only recent that this practice has become more widely recognized and adopted by mainstream channels.
