IT consumerization is all the rage. Growing numbers of tech-savvy employees are bringing their smart gadgets and apps to work, driving trends from BYOD and BYOA to BYOx. While the mobile grass looks greener, we at ManageEngine wanted to better understand our customers’ views on desktop computer usage and their views on mobile device and desktop compatibility.

To that end, we conducted a global survey of IT admins to understand how IT teams are responding to the challenges of managing mobile devices and desktops together. Our survey asked questions about:

  • How IT departments are adapting to IT consumerization trends
  • What level of awareness the typical  IT team has regarding device usage patterns within its organization
  • What their device management software preferences are when it comes to adopting a solution to manage the desktop and mobile devices
  • And more

We’ve brought together the survey results and prepared the “Desktops vs. Mobile Devices” infographic to give you real-world insights about desktop and mobile device behaviors and the significance of IT consumerization for today’s organizations.

Perhaps the most important takeaway from the infographic is this: more than 90% of employees are accessing their mobile devices for official email transactions. And that means you have to monitor the devices with the utmost caution.

Check out our infographic here. In addition to the trends we discovered, you’ll find ideas that could help you embrace the technology change being driven by the convergence of desktops and mobile devices.
