The Samsung Mobile BYOD Index is based on a survey of IT decision makers and employees from a range of mid-size and larger companies.

The survey was conducted on behalf of Samsung by IDG in November 2012 and this report provides a fresh look at the drivers behind the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend from both the IT and end user perspective and outlines both group’s perspectives while also benchmarking the growth of BYOD programs in the United States.

I am going to share some of the valuable statistics in this article however you can Click Here to download the complete Samsung Mobile BYOD Index PDF.

Here are some of the vital statistics:

  • 61% of all companies currently have some form of BYOD policy in place with only 15% explicitly prohibiting the use of personal mobile devices.
  • Of the companies surveyed with no formal BYOD policies in place, 44% consider the need to create a BYOD policy a high priority.
  • 39% of companies with BYOD policies also formally provide subsidies for the purchase of BYOD devices.
  • 71% of companies with BYOD policies in place extend the option to all employees to use their own personal mobile devices to access enterprise applications and data.
  • 76% believe that it is somewhat likely that their company will adopt a preferred standard for BYOD operating systems (e.g. iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry).
  • 24% of employees reported that they used a mobile device as their primary computing device for work-related activities. Employees also predicted that these numbers would jump to 31% in two years and 49% in five years.
  • 71% of companies with BYOD policies in place extend the option to all employees to use their own personal mobile devices to access enterprise applications and data.
