Enterprise Spending Impact on Operational Agility: Mobile/Remote Worker Connectedness and Services-Related Investments for 2021
This IDC Survey Spotlight provides insight into how enterprises are evolving their IT budgets to ensure connectivity with remote workers, driven by the shifts in work patterns because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The document contains data from IDC's Future Enterprise Resiliency and Spending (FERS) Wave 2 Survey conducted in February and March of 2021. The purpose of the FERS survey series (12 monthly surveys) is to explore a range of topics related to IT spending priorities, digital resiliency, and technology/organizational priorities in the next normal. In FERS Wave 2 Survey, IDC explored worldwide enterprise expectations for spending on remote worker connectivity platforms and services, including VPN, mobile broadband, and dedicated business broadband lines. It segmented results based on planned spending changes for 2021 versus 2020. The survey solicited replies from 790 respondents across the United States, Europe, and Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) as well as across a range of industries.
