This IDC study summarizes the results of a fall 2012 online survey on 1,700 employed consumers (out of 7,000 total consumers) practicing bring your own devices (BYOD) for work purposes. This survey spans across seven countries across Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan), including Australia, India, Indonesia, Korea, China, Singapore, and Thailand. This study will explore the user habits and utilization differences among smartphones, tablets, and notebooks across the region. Additionally, the survey also provides a first look at the consumer sentiment on Windows 8-based devices in a BYOD model.
"Knowledge workers are the best candidates for BYOD. In developed countries, enterprises are now offering these users a choice of corporate-issued smartphones and tablets. At the same time, companies in these countries tend to have better defined policies that restrict the use of personal devices; both of these factors are affecting BYOD in developed regions," says Ian Song, research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific Enterprise Mobility.
