Mobile Device Strategies in the Enterprise: 2018 Survey Results
This IDC Survey aims to understand enterprises' key strategic mobile device initiatives, from investment priorities to strategies and key deployments. Some of the key results and changes are highlighted and analyzed in this presentation. IDC's Western Europe Enterprise Mobility team surveyed more than 1,000 European business and IT mobile decision makers in May 2018. The sample quota consisted of 10 countries and 9 vertical industries.
"Mobility has a leading position among companies' ICT priorities. Over 36% of the total allocated mobility budget is for mobile devices as organizations expect to expand their mobile workforce in the next 12 months," said Rosie Secchi, research manager, IDC European Mobile Communications. "Smartphones and tablets have become the primary devices for mobility, with most European companies planning to purchase more in the next 12 months. Other products — particularly AR and VR — are also becoming prominent in the corporate space."
