Impacts and Recommendations

  • The number of employees working from multiple and remote locations will increase by a total of six percentage points over the next three years, forcing end-user computing (EUC) leaders to reassess their mobile and endpoint strategies
  • "Enterprise-supplied, no choice" managed devices will decrease in favor of a mix of enterprise-managed CYO and personally managed BYO devices, forcing EUC leaders to focus on endpoint-neutral content delivery mechanisms
  • Configuring, updating or replacing existing applications for use across device and platform types behoove EUC leaders to create an architecture that enables interoperability
