Mobility in the workplace has transformed the way we work.  Using a laptop and VPN to connect to a corporate network to access data has been around for many years and is something even small companies can provide. Providing employees with anytime, anywhere access to email and calendar on the phone, tablet or through a browser has also become significantly easier because of the evolution of both the email platforms and the mobile platforms

However, as an organization grows and becomes more complex in terms of number locations, employees and IT infrastructure, architecting and managing mobility and BYOD becomes more difficult and more critical. Business leaders and employees are demanding increased mobile access to applications and data and IT organizations must respond while at the same time keeping networks and data secure.

Collaboration-Apps-300x248In light of this evolving work environment, Cisco contracted Illuminas to conduct in-depth research to gain a better understanding of what is driving the need for enterprise mobility and BYOD and how IT organizations are delivering it. Do organizations have a mobility strategy or are they just reacting to employee and organizational demands without any coherent plan in place? How far are organizations pushing mobility and anytime, anywhere access? Are they developing applications or making current applications available via mobile devices

These questions and more were explored in great depth using a quantitative online survey around the world, and we’re excited to present the initial insights gained from our research that began in the United States.  The infographic we developed for Cisco distills the most important data into a meaningful set of insights and conclusions, and will allow organizations around the country to evaluate how they stack up in terms of mobile strategy.  How does your organization compare?
