Bigtincan's Content Intelligent report for the last half of 2013 finds that enterprise users increasingly need to manage, control, or simply oversee how much their users share content both inside and outside the organization. The biannual BIgtincan survey is conducted to highlight mobile users' interactions with content and emerging trends. The latest (and third) Content Intelligent report is based on anonymized and abstracted data from millions of interactions with mobile device users who use Bigtincan, an enterprise content and productivity hub, to access a wide spectrum of content. The data are calculated based on usage, connections, downloads and over 100 interaction types. Users were from 12 countries and speak 10 different languages. The second half of 2013 saw a 23 percent increase over the first half of 2013 in the number of mobile user sessions connections and iOS continues to dominate, according to the report. "We expect that as more and more business is conducted via mobile devices, the importance of governing content will be a big issue in 2014," says David Keane, founder and CEO of Bigtincan. "We are seeing customers implementing governance policies that are being enforced in real-time around what mobile users can and can't do with content based on the user's functional role in the organization, the sensitivity of the data and content, the location and network type that the user has accessed the content from."
