This IDC Survey Spotlight provides analysis of the results of IDC's 2018 U.S. Commercial Mobile Device Survey of 500 IT managers. This Survey Spotlight focuses on the top 3 criteria that influence IT buyers when purchasing corporate- and individual-liable smartphones.

"This IDC Survey Spotlight demonstrates the challenges that IT managers face as priorities change in the enterprise. Smartphones are key in keeping business communications open and accessible; however, the lack of effective cybersecurity solutions demands that IT department shift budgetary resources from mobile to security. We believe that the upcoming shift from 4G to 5G technologies will likely spawn new investments in enterprise mobility."
