This quarter’s iPass Mobile Workforce Report examines the evolution of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the hurdles to Wi-Fi connectivity. Mobile device choices are proliferating, and corporate BYOD strategies are evolving. Therefore, the mobile worker should be more productive than ever before, but that is often not the case. Our research shows that while mobile workers are leveraging a variety of mobile devices, Wi-Fi challenges and data limits are affecting productivity.

The iPass Wi-Fi Cost Index provides average Wi-Fi and Mobile Broadband data costs by region; models cost scenarios for international travelers; and provides insight into the impact of those costs.
This original research document centers primarily around US users travelling internationally and European users who travel both internationally and within Europe. We took this approach because the majority of an organization’s mobility costs are incurred by employees who are most likely to travel often, and beyond their own borders.
The iPass Wi-Fi Cost Index includes basic assumptions about typical business traveler usage and behavior. It documents average data usage and Mobile Broadband costs, breaking them out by region around the world. It also outlines potential savings for organizations using iPass Open Mobile for business traveler Wi-Fi connectivity.
The 2013 iPass/MobileIron Mobile Enterprise Report tells a story of the rise of BYOD, and with it increased frustration and loss of control by IT, and concern over rising mobile data costs. Results from our survey show that while Mobile IT brings with it a huge potential to improve workforce productivity, it also introduces significant new challenges for enterprise IT. We also found that Mobile IT means a new relationship between IT and the end-user. The end-user now has the ability to influence IT policy, demanding less IT control and more accommodation of employee owned devices in the workplace. Our survey validates that the shift to mobile is happening, and it’s happening fast. To fully realize the benefits of mobility and to mitigate potential risks will require a significant game change.
