Dell 2014 International Tablet Survey Shows IT Decision Makers Believe Tablets are Improving Workplace Productivity and Mobility

To help combat the IT managers’ security concerns, Dell’s Enterprise Mobile Management solutions for both corporate-managed and BYOD tablets allow encryption, policy management and data loss protection through a simple-to-download app. With many employees now using numerous devices to access corporate information, managing all of the additional tablets, cell phones and laptops has become an unwieldy task for the IT manager. By changing the focus to policy-driven access to applications and content both inside and outside the enterprise, companies are able to more effectively establish a governance model for how employees gain access to corporate information in any given scenario. Using EMM, IT managers are able to determine, for example, whether employees are able to access documents based on role, location and device, helping to secure corporate information without increasing their administrative burden.

“Dell has the tools to solve the customer pain points around security, by securing apps and data in a secure, manageable and reliable way,” said Hand. “The ability to remote wipe a device, or fully encrypt all the content from a single location should provide a sense of comfort to IT managers everywhere that data loss, viruses, and other threats can be efficiently dealt with should they occur.”

About the Dell 2014 International Tablet Survey

The 2014 International Tablet Survey conducted by Harris Poll and sponsored by Dell, surveyed IT Decision Makers (ITDMs) in 10 countries: US, UK, India, Japan, China, Brazil, France, Russia, UAE/Saudi Arabia, and South Africa. The purpose of this study was to gain insight and feedback from the ITDMs in these countries regarding their tablet usage, specifically: their policies toward the use of tablets in their company; their tablet purchase habits for their company; the impact of tablets on their company in terms of benefits and challenges; their views on tablets vs. desktops, laptops and smartphones; and how well tablets met their expectations. Results of the Tablet Survey can be viewed in their entirety here:


In the US, 250 interviews were completed online by Harris Poll among IT Decision Makers aged 18 and older who are employed full-time at companies with at least 500 employees and have a major influence on computer purchasing decisions. The other countries had the same qualification criteria except the company size was at least 200 employees; 150 respondents in the UK, 152 in India, 152 in Japan, 153 in China, 154 in Brazil, 152 in France, 102 in Russia, 77 in UAE/Saudi Arabia, and 77 in South Africa were surveyed.
