IDG Enterprise’s 2013 Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise Research Details Main Stream Adoption of Mobile Devices, the Increasing Use of Business Apps and Cloud and Security Challenges

FRAMINGHAM, MA–(Marketwired – Apr 15, 2013) - IDG Enterprise – the media company comprising Computerworld, InfoWorld, Network World, CIO, DEMO, CSO, CIO Executive Council, ITworld, CFOworld and CITEworld — releases the results from the 2013 Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise (CITE) research, highlighting the adoption of mobile devices for business purposes, the growing use of apps and the cloud and the security concerns this adoption places on an organization.

Main Stream Adoption of Mobile Devices
While most organizations are dealing with CITE in a reactive way, they are embracing the use of personal mobile devices. Currently, 60% of organizations support the use of personally owned smart phones and that will remain stable over the next 12-18 months. However, the support of personally owned laptops (57%) and tablets (51%) will swap places in the next 12-18 months with 50% and 58% supported respectively. Overall, organizations have increased their policies in allowing employees to use personal devices to work over the past year.

Gartner Says There's No Reason to Delay, CIOs Should Be Experimenting With Media Tablets in Business

Special Report Provides Advice on Best Practices for Business Uses of iPad and Other Media Tablets

Press Release, 4/5/11

Media tablets are presenting a variety of new opportunities for businesses, but they are also requiring a new set of policies, technologies and skills for enterprises, according to Gartner, Inc.

“CIOs are determined not to make the same mistakes they made with smartphones, which were often written off early as expensive and frivolous toys, or executive status symbols — which then left room for more inventive leaders who saw the competitive advantage that mobile applications would bring,” said David Willis, research vice president at Gartner. “They are also more willing to see that they don’t need to supply and manage every device that employees use at work: Consumerization is here to stay, and moving very fast. If you can think of an application for tablets, your competition may well be thinking in the same way — and acting on it. It is time to explore the use of media tablets in business.”
