This IDC Survey focuses on mobile enterprise management and security and compares results between this year's and last year's Western Europe Enterprise Mobility Survey. IDC's Western Europe Enterprise Mobility team conducted a survey of more than 1,000 European business and IT mobile decision makers in May 2018. The sample quota consisted of 10 countries and nine vertical industries.
"IT departments are taking more control of enterprise mobility initiatives (and downsizing shadow IT), while a dedicated mobility team, possibly part of a digital department, is leading developments going forward," said Angela Salmeron, research manager, IDC European Mobility. "As enterprises' mobility strategies mature, the adoption of management and security solutions (with enterprise mobility management or EMM, mobile threat management, and mobility identity management, for example) is rapidly increasing."
