Summary of New Findings Real-life consumer trends and increasing number of devices in the workplace are causing employees worldwide to question relevance of IT policies – and break them A disconnect exists between IT policies and workers, as employees strongly desire mobile work options and flexibility with devices and applications IT policies need to keep up with a workforce that is demanding to be connected anywhere, any time, with any device and any information – or employees will do so, regardless of IT policy IT can increase employee satisfaction if it keeps up with the top market trends – and depending on country/culture, trust employee judgment The use of video is on the rise for consumer and enterprise communications – almost seven in ten of IT professionals expect the use of video to increase

IT Policy of Acceptable Use Q. Does your company have an IT policy outlining acceptable uses of company resources such as personal computers, cellular telephones, smart phones or PDAs?

Almost half of the workers in the study (47%) either do not have an IT policy on device usage or do not know that one exists
Growing number of devices in the workplace – and consumer trends such as social media and video – are causing employees to question the relevance of corporate IT, especially if they are not aware of the specific policies
