Western Europe Enterprise Mobile Device Survey, 2017: Wearable Device Usage in the Enterprise
IDC's Western Europe Mobile Device research team conducted a survey of more than 800 European business mobile decision makers in September 2017. This IDC study is focused on tracking the usage of wearable devices in the enterprise, addressing current usage compared to expected usage in the next 12 months, and breaking these numbers down by company size.
"Wearable devices have yet to gain relevance in the enterprise segment for other than specific use cases such as employee safety, health tracking, and glanceable information," said Francisco Almeida, senior research analyst, European Mobile Devices, IDC. There are several trends in place that will help change the way enterprises use wearables, which are discussed in this document.
