BYOD Trends

I recently came across an interesting infographic regarding BYOD.

Did you know that by 2016, its predicted that 350 million employees will use smartphones for their job, with 200 million bringing their own!

Currently, 71 percent of businesses feel that mobile computing increases performance. Businesses are using mobile devices for:

  • Email
  • Web Browsing
  • Contacts
  • Calendar
  • Instant Messaging
  • Office Applications
  • Task and Project Management
  • Social Media Applications
  • Line of Business Applications
  • Salesforce or other CRM

Because more and more companies are using mobile devices and encouraging BYOD, there’s also a trend in increasing budgets for mobile apps and middleware—70 percent of businesses are planning a corporate “store” for mobile applications!

So, who’s leading the head of the BYOD pack? Surprisingly, 90 percent of all financial organizations and 85 percent of all healthcare organizations are supporting BYOD.
