This IDC study gives IT mobility stakeholders 10 key predictions around mobility-related issues that will impact their organizations within the next 12–36 months. Predictions are designed to be broadly relevant and resonant, with concise impact assessments and actionable essential guidance for IT.
"Mobility continues to challenge enterprises across a number of fronts led by security, data integration, and device management," said John Jackson, IDC's research vice president for Mobility. "But the prognosis is good if not extremely good when we consider the massive new sources of efficiency and innovation that mobility delivers," he continued. "Technology suppliers across hardware, software, service, and connectivity markets continue to innovate furiously, to a point where most of the mobility-related challenges identified by enterprise mobility stakeholders are addressable. The near-term future will see attention swing more squarely toward proactive innovation, both around mobility and what comes after it."
