Apps In The Workplace

I came across an interesting article this morning. The article was published on regarding a study done by Forrester with the subject “80pc of time spent in just five apps: Forrester”.

The basic premise of the article was that users spend 80% of their time on just 5 apps: Pandora, Gmail, Facebook, Youtube, Maps. 80% of usage is an incredible amount of time!

If the same rings true for company owned devices, then businesses have a great savings opportunity and new focus point. Identifying a way to better enforce wireless policy or finding a way better leverage mobile application management through an MDM solution is a great starting point.The benefits are two fold:

  • Data usage decreases resulting in potentially monthly savings

  • User productivity may increase resulting in potential soft dollar savings

Out of the 5 apps referenced, 4 of these are for personal use the majority of the time, with the exception being Maps and for companies utilizing Google Apps for Business, Gmail as well.
