INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Jul 5, 2012) - AOTMP, the leading authority on driving efficiency and performance into fixed and mobile telecom environments, has uncovered a large disconnect between the management of mobile applications on corporate-owned and employee-owned devices.
AOTMP's research revealed that 72% of enterprises manage work-related applications on corporate-owned wireless devices, while only 38% manage work-related applications on employee-owned devices. Irrespective to device ownership, 15% of enterprises cited that they do not manage any work-related applications on mobile devices.
In response to the lack of monitoring and tracking of mobile applications, 45% of enterprises indicated that it was not a priority for their organizations, while 38% referenced a lack of internal resources as the reason for not monitoring and tracking mobile applications.
Nearly 50% of enterprises cited lack of appropriate tools and technology as the reason for not monitoring and tracking applications on corporate-owned mobile devices, while 40% indicate that it is not a priority.
Alarmingly, only 54% of enterprises indicated that they know the number of mobile application licenses they own and the number of licenses which are currently in use.
"As businesses grapple with the question of allowing employee-owned wireless devices they must also address their mobile application management practices," noted Tim Lybrook, CEO of AOTMP. "The market is clearly lacking in defined practices and standards in this area today."
