The overall research objective is to measure the current use and future decision-making behavior toward IT technologies, specifically smartphones and tablets for business purposes. Nearly 3 out of 4 organizations issue corporate-owned laptops and smartphones to their workforces, while almost half issue tablets. Almost 60% of organizations allow connection of personal devices to the corporate network; however, only 4 out of 10 IT decision makers report that their companies have a formal bring your own device policy in place. Moreover, Android has taken a surprising lead as the most common mobile operating system supported for organization-owned devices, followed by iOS, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry.
