The State of Mobile Enterprise Software in 2015: An IDC Survey of Applications, Platforms, Decisions, and Deployments

This IDC study details the recently conducted IDC's 2015 Mobile Enterprise Software Survey of 508 enterprise mobility decision makers in the United States. The survey results cover an extensive array of topics related to enterprise mobility. Key topics of coverage include budgets, priorities, decision factors, expectations, applications deployed, mobile application platforms, deployment issues, and future investment in mobile technologies.

"IDC's 2015 Mobile Enterprise Software Survey reveals enterprise organizations are deploying more applications than in previous years and are looking toward cloud-based solutions in order to do so. The number of business applications reaching enterprise employees is rapidly increasing and, in turn, driving demand for flexible and scalable mobile security solutions." — Bryan Bassett, research analyst with IDC's Enterprise Mobility research practice.
