With most organizations looking to increase investment in their mobility efforts in 2017, cloud integration is emerging as a must-have IT mobility capability, according to a recent survey from DMI and Clutch. Companies are also proactively pursuing mobile device and mobile app management, in addition to internet of things (IoT) integration, findings reveal. And to make sure the device deployment doesn't lead to security breaches and other problems, organizations are coming up with a policy creation and enforcement plan. Through such measures, they're reaping the rewards of greater employee productivity, data access, sales, internal communications and data capture. However, they still struggle with device management challenges, as well as employee training gaps. Through continued collaboration with users, CIOs and other IT leaders hope to resolve these issues, while fostering an enterprise mobility environment that maximizes the benefits of the cloud, the IoT and data tools. "We have seen the way mobility has grown in the enterprise," said Varun Dogra, CTO of DMI. "Initially, it was about device security and accessing emails. Now, enterprise mobility is more about applications and data. It's mobile-first, cloud-first everywhere." More than 580 U.S. IT decision-makers took part in the research.
