This IDC Perspective provides feedback from Fortune 1000 organizations on the key lessons learned through deploying their mobile applications. Throughout 2017, IDC conducted in-depth telephone interviews with 20 different organizations across the world. Rather than develop mobile applications using internal application development and IT resources, each organization utilized a third-party services firm to develop a custom-made mobile application for their company. Through the course of the interviews, IDC sought to gain insight into the results of organizations' mobile application deployments and key lessons learned that they were weaving back into their management techniques for ongoing rollout of applications. The 20 interviews spanned 11 industries, namely, insurance, banking, media, entertainment, automotive, consumer products, government, high tech, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, and oil and gas, and nine countries, namely, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Norway, Italy, Australia, India, and Japan."Mobility has become further entrenched within the application portfolio, and organizations continue to roll out mobile applications to support their businesses at a rapid pace," says Pete Marston, research director, IDC's Application Development, Testing, and Management Services. "While organizations are becoming more mature with mobile, mastery in deployment continues to be elusive. As a result, they continue to refine capabilities through applying lessons learned to their delivery models to drive more operational efficiency and effectiveness."

  • Report Delivery
    • How and when I will receive my Report?
    • Most reports are delivered right away in a pdf format, while others are accessed via a secure link and access codes. Do note that sometimes reports are sent within a 12 hour period, depending on the time zones. However, you can contact us to escalate this. Should you need a hard copy, you can check if this option is offered for the particular report, and pay the related fees.

    • No. Once your order has been processed and the publisher has received a notification to send you the report, we cannot issue any refund or cancel any order. As these are not ‘traditional’ products that can be returned, reports that are dispatched are considered to be ‘consumed’.
  • User license
    • The license that you should acquire depends on the number of persons that need to access the report. This can range from Single User (only one person will have the right to read or access the report), or Department License (up to 5 persons), to Site License (a group of persons based in the same company location), or Corporate License (the entire company personnel based worldwide). However, as publishers have different terms and conditions, we can look into this for you.
