In a May 2011 survey of IT Business Edge members, conducted by Palmer Research, 85 percent of respondents cite improved employee efficiency as one of the most important benefits of mobile device connectivity, and 64 percent cite streamlined communications. Even with mobile connectivity high on their radar, though, fewer than 50 percent have set standards and support for some or all mobile devices in their organizations. For those who are developing a formal support structure, the average timeframe for completion is under 12 months for over 80 percent of respondents.

These organizations are planning to connect an average of 19,100 smartphones and/or tablets in the next 12 months, which creates an opportunity for even higher employee productivity. That is, if employees are able to access the necessary enterprise software. A recent IFS study conducted among manufacturing executives and professionals of middle market to large manufacturers found that while many respondents viewed the mobile interface as an important consideration in enterprise software selection, few respondents actually have access from their mobile device.
