Mobile Support Lacking for Most Workers

Only one in five workers strongly agrees that their employers make it as easy to do their jobs on mobile devices as from a work computer.
Most companies come up short in terms of equipping workers with the mobile tools they need to succeed. Mobile devices and applications are commonly perceived as productivity boosters, if not outright necessities, but a Sybase survey shows that few professionals think their employers do a good job of creating a mobile-friendly environment. Survey participants also give low grades to their IT departments with respect to the management of these devices and apps. "Enterprises need to broaden and accelerate their enterprise mobility strategies," says Dan Ortega, senior director of product marketing at Sybase. "Employees are beginning to have a much greater understanding of mobility, resulting in increased expectations from IT.” One possible solution: company-managed app stores, which seem to be gaining greater acceptance within many enterprises. More than 500 employees in the U.S. and the U.K. took part in the research. For more about the survey, click here. Additional research was taken from this report.
