Report finds mobile technology helps companies weather uncertainty
Stratix Corporation, a provider of Managed Mobility Services in the USA, has partnered with Hanover Research on a new survey of IT leaders that shows companies are investing in mobile technology to get the nimbleness and efficiency they need to succeed as disruption continues and the economic outlook appears recessionary.
The Stratix 2023 Enterprise Mobility report shows that companies are investing in mobile to handle whatever difficulties may come. It found that 86% are using mobile more now than in the last three years, and 97% say mobile is very, or extremely, important to their business.
“What is different in this year’s Enterprise Mobility Outlook report is that we are seeing IT leaders prioritizing mobile investment strategies to transform workflows, enhance employee enablement and collaboration, and improve supply chain efficiencies,” explained Stratix Senior Vice President of Marketing Elizabeth Klingseisen. “Despite — or perhaps because of — economic conditions, businesses are doubling down on cost-effective mobile technology to be more competitive and effective.”
The study also found the proliferation of mobile use cases is expanding to more than phones and tablets. The report found:
- 59% are leveraging more wearable devices in workflows now than in the past three years
- 67% are using more IoT
- 78% say emerging technology impacts overall IT strategy
The report also revealed the proliferation of mobile technology is putting pressure on those same organizations.
“Most IT teams are overwhelmed by the number and diversity of technology they’re now expected to support,” said Klingseisen. “It’s leading to burnout, security concerns, and other problems, so they are increasingly turning to partnering with Managed Mobility Services providers to get the expertise needed to be successful.”
The full survey results and findings can be found in the Stratix 2023 Enterprise Mobility Outlook research report.
