Enterprise Mobility to reach 80% MEA healthcare by 2017


Recent report published by the International Data Corporation (IDC) Health Insights has shown that enterprise mobility will have penetrated over 80 per cent of Middle East and Africa (MEA) healthcare organizations by 2017, reports ITRealms.

The report which is based on IDC's annual survey of the region's CIO community, ITRealms informs, indicates that corporate smart devices have already been deployed by over one-third of MEA healthcare organizations, with another 50 per cent planning to adopt them by 2017. Mobilizing enterprise applications, adopting mobile device management (MDM) solutions, and developing policies for enabling enterprise mobility are at the peak of priorities of the IT executives that are planning to embrace mobility.

The press release made available to ITRealms revealed that Information Technology (IT) security remains the greatest concern for healthcare CIOs, with the surveyed IT leaders identifying insider threats and staff-related issues as their most critical security challenges. These concerns are being further aggravated by insufficient budgets, the lack of mature security strategies, and a shortage of skilled IT security personnel.

The lead research analyst for Central Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEMA) at IDC Health Insights, commenting on the report said, "The need for a mobile healthcare workforce will be one of the key drivers of mobile technology investments in MEA over the coming years. In line with the rapidly-rising importance of enterprise mobility within the MEA healthcare industry, mobile security will dominate investments in IT security solutions. Investments in MDM solutions will see particularly strong growth."
