Sybase today released the results of a new survey by Kelton Research that found that this year, 90% of IT managers surveyed are planning to implement new mobile applications and nearly one in two believe that successfully managing mobile applications will top their priority list.
The online survey of 250 IT managers in the U.S. and U.K. at companies with revenues of $100 million or more found that 21% are looking to introduce 20 or more mobile applications into their organization. Almost half (45%) of respondents predict that implementing or managing the onslaught of mobile enterprise applications tops the priority list in the coming year, even over more common issues such as adhering to IT budgets. Also, 56% of IT managers consider customizing company information for mobile purposes a crucial part of conducting business and not just a “nice to have.” In addition, more than eight in ten (84%) of those who feel this way work for companies that are flexible about the use of new mobile applications or devices.MOBILE
