  • 1. Citrix Mobility Report: A Look Ahead December, 2013 Will BYO in 2014 be more of the same? To get a glimpse into mobility and BYO trends for 2014, Citrix recently conducted a survey among enterprise IT organizations. This survey provides insights into 2013 trends and predictors for 2014, pointing to more BYO challenges in 2014 as the variety of devices and applications increase. Despite the rocky road ahead, IT organizations must continue to embrace BYO as user choice will remain supreme and business owners will find creative approaches to leverage mobility to grow the top line, improve customer relations, and drive higher levels of productivity and efficiency. IT must have a plan in place and adopt an enterprise mobility management solution that allows them to adapt to the dynamic changes in their BYO environment. BYO devices will increasingly extend beyond smartphones and tablets and include desktops and laptops. Our survey results reveal that while the spotlight around BYO device adoption has largely been focused on smartphones and tablets, organizations are also having to support BYO desktops and laptops. In fact, BYO desktops/laptops account for 18% of BYO devices in 2013. A survey of Citrix customers confirm high levels of BYO for mobile devices % devices that are BYO 60% 40% 50% 54% 20% 18% 0% Smartphones Tablets Desktops/ Laptops
  • 2. Citrix Mobility Report 2 December, 2013 In 2014, organizations predict BYO desktops and laptops will grow to 25%. By the end of 2014, approximate percentage of the devices in your environment that will be BYO (Average percentages) 60% 54% 50% 40% 25% 20% 0% Smartphones Tablets Desktops/ Laptops Windows-based desktops and apps will continue to be dominant. While the use of BYO smartphones and tablets in the enterprise has increased, mobile apps only account for 6% of all apps used. That means almost 94% of apps in an enterprise are not mobile. Windows apps still dominate accounting for 64%. Mix of app types in enterprises Predicted mix of app types in enterprises by end of 2014 6% 9% 20% 64% 10% 54% 23% 14% Mobile SaaS Windows HTML5/Web In 2014, Windows will continue to be the dominant platform despite its decline from 64% to 54% of all app types delivered by IT admins. The implication is that IT must find a solution to mobilize and manage these different types of apps while delivering them to a diverse set of BYO devices.
  • 3. Citrix Mobility Report 3 December, 2013 2014: Year of mobile app proliferation and confusion For many organizations, the growth of mobile devices and applications is largely driven by employees’ desire to be more productive. As a result, IT organizations are supporting a wide variety of applications with email being the predominant mobile app. When it comes to supporting mobility, what are the most important types of mobile applications to your organization? 100% 80% 90% 60% 40% 35% 20% 0% Mobile email (including calendar and contacts) SharePoint access 48% 21% Enterprise file sync and share Web conferencing 36% Secure browser 39% Collaboration tools 52% Line of business apps In 2014, the number of apps in use by organizations will increase. 42% of respondents expect to manage 100+ apps, with 21% of those respondents expecting to manage 1000+ apps. We predict that there will be a state of app confusion driven as IT struggles with answering key questions including: ŸŸ Determining whether to wait until native mobile or cloud versions of commercial-off-the shelf apps are available. ŸŸ Deciding what platforms (iOS, Android, WinPhone, etc.) internally developed apps should support and in what order. ŸŸ Holding off further adoption of native mobile apps in favor of web or cloud based apps. ŸŸ Creating the appropriate organizational structure and processes to support the development and management of a heterogeneous application environment.
  • 4. Citrix Mobility Report 4 December, 2013 Security concerns will still exist, but won’t slow down BYOD. While IT organizations are clearly concerned about security risks such as corporate information stored locally on mobile devices, these concerns will not slow BYOD adoption. The implication is that IT must find a solution that allows them to secure data from a variety of different applications on different devices without impacting user productivity and satisfaction. For native mobile applications (apps downloaded onto a device), how concerned are you about corporate information from those apps residing in applications locally stored on the device? 13% Very concerned 29% 58% Somewhat concerned Not concerned Mobile device and app management strategies will need to evolve. Most organizations have strategies in place to manage mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud data. Does your organization have a corporate strategy in place to manage mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud data? 120% 100% 80% 66% 56% 60% 40% 20% 0% 28% Devices (mobile device management) 36% Mobile Apps (mobile application management, enterprise app store) 41% 49% Cloud Data (cloud data sync and sharing tools) Yes No Don’t know
  • 5. Citrix Mobility Report December, 2013 5 Conclusion Organizations will need to re-evaluate existing mobility strategies to account for the increase in complexity in 2014 (outlined above), including the growth of BYO desktops and laptops and the need to support Windows desktop and legacy apps on all BYO devices.
