How Mobile Devices Are Impacting the Enterprise

By Don Reisinger  |  Posted 11-27-2012 Print

Mobile devices are infiltrating the enterprise at an astounding rate. From smartphones to tablets, the corporate world is being inundated with products that are designed to keep employees working while they're away from the office. Most companies believe the effort works. In fact, the sheer number of smartphones and tablets entering the enterprise seems to indicate that without mobile products, many companies believe that they wouldn't be able to compete as effectively in the marketplace.

A new study from iPass, the Global Mobile Workforce Report, examines mobile products’ impact on the enterprise. Not surprisingly, iPass found the corporate world is relying heavily on smartphones and tablets. What's more, survey respondents indicate that in the coming years, the average firm's reliance on mobile devices will only increase. In short, get ready for smartphones and tablets to increasingly affect your IT operations.


Surprise, surprise: Apple's iPhone owns 53% of the enterprise market, up from 45% last year.
