State of Enterprise Mobility 2013 Survey Results | Part 1

MobileEnterpriseStrategies.com

I am working on the "State of Enterprise Mobility 2013" survey report this week and wanted to share some of the interesting results.  Here is the first question, "How important is B2E (business-to-employee) mobility to your company's success?"  Here are the answers:

  • End users - 30% stated it has a large to critical impact
  • Analysts -  69% stated it has a large to critical impact
  • Consultants - 40% stated is has a large to critical impact
  • Mobility Vendors - 51% stated it has a large to critical impact
  • Software/ERP Vendors - 46% stated is has a large to critical impact

Here is the second question, "How important is B2C (business-to-consumer) mobile apps to your company's success?"  Here are the answers:

  • End users - 40% stated it has a large to critical impact
  • Analysts - 23% stated it has a large to critical impact
  • Consultants - 33% stated it has a large to critical impact
  • Mobility Vendors - 35% stated it has a large to critical impact
  • Software/ERP Vendors - 29% stated it has a large to critical impact

It is very interesting that "end-users" value B2E less than the rest of the market, but value B2C more than the rest of the market participants.

It is also interesting that "analysts" place a much higher value on B2E mobility than the rest of the market participants, but value B2C less than the rest.

What are your interpretations of this data?
