BANGALORE: To map out the latest enterprise mobility trends in India, BlackBerry and CMR announced the findings of the first-of-its-kind survey report titled ‘India Enterprise Mobility’. The report highlights that enterprise mobility and BYOD have gone beyond discussion forums asmobility emerges as a top priority for most organizations. Indicating this shift, BlackBerry-CMR survey finds that 71 percent of the organisations surveyed either have a mobility policy or are currently in the process of drafting one.Selecting the right platform and developing an enterprise-wide mobility strategy emerged as key challenges for implementing a mobility solution. Telecom expense management, packaged apps for mobile collaboration and MDM – spell out MDM in first reference solutions featured in the three key areas of investment in enterprise mobility for India.



The report analyzes the continuous growth and evolution of the mobility market, driven primarily by the requirements of consumers rather than enterprise buyers.  However, with BYOD initiatives, both the worlds are coming together. Though BYOD is a prevalent trend across sectors, only 42 percent of the organizations surveyed have a BYOD policy in place with the IT/ITeS vertical leading the pack, followed by BFSI & Telecom, and Media & Entertainment.Across all sectors, data protection followed by device security emerged as the biggest concerns while implementing BYOD policy.



Apalak Ghosh, Lead Analyst, Emerging Technologies, CMR said, “The era of mobile enterprise has arrived. An entire ecosystem needs to be developed to support enterprise mobility. Design, development, deployment and maintenance of devices and applications will assume critical importance in this process. The report presentsexciting opportunities for enterprise mobility vendors and attempts to provide a direction to enterprises to align their mobile policy to address the new requirements.”



“As the perenial Gold Standard in enterprise mobility solutions, BlackBerry is constantly looking at new opportunities and avenues to further strengthen our enterprise offerings and address the growing complexities and risks of mobile communication. We believe this report will highlight the disruption taking place in communication across enterprises as it offers compelling insights as well as a future roadmap for the industry at large. Mobility as an enabler for enterprises has become a business imperative and BlackBerry is uniquely positioned to offer end-to-end mobility solutions,” said Sunil Lalvani, Managing Director, BlackBerryIndia.
