This is one of those once in a lifetime experiences. It was great that all I had to do was go to the break room at the office to see it!

There has been a trend over the last decade or so for IT to take more control of the reigns and dictate what is available to their customers (e.g., employees), but with the explosion of mobility, this trend is facing an uphill battle. According to a recent survey by app central, “68% of respondents indicated that their organization had made one or more custom mobile apps available to them.” This number alone shows the prevalence of mobility in today’s enterprise, but the more interesting, as frankly more frightening to IT, is that according to 67% of respondents, the budget funding those mobile apps was coming from Business units, marketing or executive leadership. Now in the time of restrictive IT budgets this may seem like a godsend, but what it is showing is that the business is moving forward with or without IT and when IT does not control the budget for the app development you can be sure they aren’t controlling the roadmap for that app development.
