App Fatigue and Other Growing User Issues

By Karen A. Frenkel  |  Posted 02-25-2016 Email

Is 2016 the year app fatigue will reach its tipping point? What should CIOs do to adapt to the changing needs of their employees? What will come of the duel between Google and Microsoft, and what implications will it have for future offerings? Can IT decision-makers and information workers reap the benefits with increasingly competitive prices, licensing structures and enhanced product features, innovations and ecosystems? "The way work gets done will continue to shift in 2016," said Mark Mader, CEO of collaboration work management company Smartsheet. "From the transition of bring your own app (BYOA) to bring your own platform (BYOP), to the impact end-user-introduced and managed solutions will have on employee engagement and satisfaction, the agility and flexibility of CIOs to keep up with the changing demands of workers will be pivotal," he said. Mader addresses these topics in his predictions for 2016, which enterprise IT executives and CIOs should watch closely.
