Security, Apps, IoT: The Mobile Enterprise Spider Web

Your enterprise has gone or is going mobile. Sounds simple, right?

Any IT decision maker will tell you it’s easier said than done.

The state of enterprise mobility is growing daily, and like any digital transformation, its successes are paired with a multitude of obstacles and pain points. Enterprise Mobility Exchange recently fielded a survey around the state of the industry, asking IT executives about verticals including mobile security, apps, IoT, and cloud, among others.

The findings from the survey, along with interviews from thought leaders in the aforementioned topics, will be published in a white paper this summer. In the meantime, here are a few of the data points collected from the survey:

The top three enterprise mobility needs in 2017 are:

Nearly half the survey respondents said they aren’t using Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or Corporately Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) exclusively; rather taking on a hybrid model for better flexibility.

Heading into 2017, Internet of Things (IoT) was the hottest, most prevalent buzzword enterprises were tapping into. More than two-thirds of survey respondents said they are either strategizing or have already begun implementing initiatives to have a fully connected enterprise.

The data includes a plethora of information around artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as the proliferation of shadow IT and enterprise apps. Industry analysts and leaders from Global Kinetics, ABI Research, ESG Research, and IDC Research have all weighed in on the state of the industry to Enterprise Mobility Exchange and will be part of the upcoming report.

Once finalized, the report will be posted on the Enterprise Mobility Exchange website and included in newsletters, e-blasts, and social media campaigns, reaching a global audience of IT executives and decision makers.
