Do IT departments manage mobile applications on corporate-owned devices and employee-owned devices differently? AOTMP, an information services company, conducted a study that revealed a large disconnect between the management of mobile applications on corporate-owned and employee-owned devices.
According to the study, 72 percent of enterprises manage work-related applications on corporate-owned wireless devices, while only 38 percent manage work-related applications on employee-owned devices. Another 15 percent stated that they do not manage any work-related applications on mobile devices.
Interestingly enough, 50 percent of all enterprises cited lack of appropriate tools, and technology as the main reason for not monitoring and tracking applications on corporate-owned mobile devices. On the contrary, 40 percent indicate that it is not a priority.
