Recently, according to a survey from Frost&Sullivan, the use of tablets is expected to increase from 49% to 56%, while the use of smartphones is expected to decrease from 66% to just 58%. Right now, among enterprises, only 47% of tablets are issued to their workforces, while 74% are laptops and 71% smartphones.
However, this survey says that tablets are expected to bridge the gap over the next three years, as mobile applications migrate over to the tablets. It seems that only four out of ten IT organizations allow personal devices to be connected to the corporate network.
Karolina, Olszweska, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan said: “Approximately 58 percent of large enterprises have a formal BYOD policy, while only 20 percent of small businesses have a standardized policy. The most common method of enforcing BYOD policies is through network technology solutions at 67 percent, followed by mobile device management at 61 percent.”
