Over the past two months, we have been collecting responses to our annual survey, to gather the thoughts, experience and priorities of our community with regards to Enterprise Mobility. The results of this survey have been used to produce our second annual report, the Global State of Enterprise Mobility 2014/15.

Drawing on the success of last yearâ??s corresponding research initiative, this report is set to educate practitioners, solution providers and analysts alike on what has been driving mobility forward in 2014, and what is expected to accelerate the market trends even further in 2015.

The report has revealed that, just as they were this time last year, mobile applications are still the dominant solution in terms of investment for mobile practitioners, as these are the tools that enable the highest increases in employee productivity â?? the key benefit of Enterprise Mobility.

A key development indicates that approaching mobility in a strategic way has become a much more significant part of the practitioner decision making process in 2014, as ensuring mobile solutions fit in with the overall business strategy was revealed to be the most important factor when choosing solution providers, with 52.1% of respondents including this in their feedback.
