CLOUD Generating Demand MOBILE Worldwide

Mobile is the future of how we engage

Disruptive technologies are by definition transformative, and the growing use of mobile technologies is creating sweeping changes in how people interact and behave in their personal and business lives. When both your customers and employees are going mobile, there’s little doubt that the future of how we engage is mobile.

The following research shows us just how much online behavior is changing:

  • Pew Internet Research reported that as of October 2014, 64 percent of American adults own a smartphone. 63 percent of adult cell phone owners are using their phones to go online, and 34 percent of cell phone internet users go online mostly using their phones.1
  • IDG looked at the business use of mobile, and found that smartphones are a critical business tool for senior executives; 92 percent of whom own and use a smartphone for business.2
  • A mobile technology survey by IBM Business Partner Sage found that slightly more than half of the survey respondents (51 percent) personally use a mobile device to access work-related information remotely (when away from the office or their main computer). These employees are using mobile apps to check their email, text message, manage contacts, and access their calendars, documents, banking and social media.3

    I wanted to add that the above offerings where JUST enabled in the US for business partners to sell (April 1, 2015) – contact any of the names referenced above for further interest and discussion on how you can help consult your clients on their mobile transformation – I know no one would disagree we are all experiencing how mobility is changing the WAY we work. This is also a good foundational understanding to have for those #IBMPartners who are participating in the upcoming Global Business Partner Transformational Workshop. Glad to have the conversation in advance of that workshop!
