Olof-Wallin will share insights from his research, which focuses on enterprise mobility, to answer the following questions: What will be the key mobile and wireless technology, and market trends through 2018?

Enterprise Mobility in Europe: Achieve Greater Levels of Maturity

Twice each year, IDC takes an in-depth look at how European Heads of IT are thinking about and tackling mobility issues in their organizations. IDC uses data from this research to gauge the levels of maturity that European enterprises are attaining in their approaches to mobility. Until recently, enterprises have been reactive, focusing mainly on the potential problems of mobility in areas such as security, liability and cost. But now, IDC sees enterprise mobility entering a more mature phase: forward-looking organizations are developing strategies to tap the benefits of embracing mobility, such as higher efficiency, improved productivity and better customer service. Join John Delaney, associate vice president of mobility at IDC, to hear details of what characterizes a mature approach to mobility.

Delaney will present IDC’s latest thinking about dealing with the challenges of mobility, and about using mobility to enhance and transform a business. Points that John will cover his keynote will include:

  • How enterprises are moving to balance enablement with control, in their workers’ use of mobile technologies
  • How and why the focus of mature organisations is shifting away from mobile devices and towards mobile applications
  • How the availability of 4G mobile services is impacting enterprises’ approach to mobility
