This IDC study discusses the worldwide connected devices 2019 predictions.
"IT faces a significant challenge as employees ask for new devices they believe will help drive increased productivity such as smart assistants, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) headsets, and increasingly capable wearables," said Tom Mainelli, VP of Devices at IDC. "Perhaps even more challenging — and potentially beneficial — is how today's existing technologies and how companies buy and deploy them are changing. IT has a tough job ahead of it, but the results could drive big dividends for their companies."
