ARC Launches Industrial Mobility Survey

Oct. 22, 2013
The biggest technology news across industry over the past few years has been the rapid adoption of mobile devices. To better understand current mobile deployment and usage trends, ARC Advisory Group is rolling out a new survey.

Few in industry would disagree with the notion that the adoption of mobile device for business use has likely been the most notable—and noticeable—change to occur in recent memory. From rollouts of Wi-Fi networks and increasing adoption of cellular connectivity to an influx of tablets, smartphones and BYOD policies, it’s clear that mobile technology has firmly claimed its spot in the automation toolbox.

To get a better grasp on how mobile technbology is affecting operations today and what the outlook is across industries, ARC Advisory Group is launching a survey designed to help industry better understand what it all means—or will mean—with regard to production operations moving forward.

According to ARC, this survey is designed for and should be taken by “stakeholders or champions who are involved in implementing mobility solutions and strategies at their organizations.” If that description is not pointed at you, ARC asks that you make the person in your organization who does fit that description aware of this survey by forwarding this article and link to the survey to them.

Respondents to the survey will be able to view preliminary results immediately after completing the survey. A Strategy Report on the results of this survey will be released later this year. By taking the survey, you will receive a free copy of the aggregated results.

ARC has confirmed that all respondents’ answers are kept strictly confidential, and no company specific information or individual responses will be disclosed. In addition, ARC does not disclose the fact that you participated in the survey.
