Why Read This Report

The connected enterprise is becoming a reality. Businesses require access to the best market information regarding customer demand, supplier options, transport and logistics, and sales patterns. They also need to make the existing workforce smarter and more efficient, as well as retain and attract talent. Future business models will rely on flexible supply chains and production processes that enable businesses to apply existing strengths in a fluctuating demand and competitive context. Mobility, smart connectivity and networking, and cloud-based as-a-service delivery models are the big technology initiatives that CIOs will leverage to deal with social networking, changing user experiences, consumerization, and over-the-top services. This report helps CIOs understand where their peers stand, and what their perceptions and plans are regarding crucial elements of the connected enterprise, including mobile device and application management. This report also highlights technology purchasing strategies and how businesses intend to prepare for the future through smart connectivity and machine-to-machine solutions (M2M) solutions.
