36 percent believe they are secure; 84 percent of respondents want to
work remotely, but 70 percent have inadequate mobile tools
Modern knowledge workers are valued for their experience and approach to
problem solving but their tools are stuck in the Stone Age
According to the survey, 73 percent of companies are using cloud apps,
but only 36 percent feel that cloud-based apps are secure.
90 percent of companies surveyed are required to comply with
government regulations, but 40 percent of companies are not regularly
updating their tools.
54 percent believe that the model company embraces working remotely,
11 percent said it’s an inconvenience and only four percent believe it
should not be allowed.
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Corporation, a provider of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) applications
for Dynamic Case Management (DCM), today announced results of a survey
that consisted of over 200 respondents and found that modern workers do
not have the necessary tools in place to do their jobs.
Survey results, which include responses from knowledge workers,
executives, IT/technicians and specialists, point to an insatiable
appetite for the latest mobile, cloud and PaaS technologies, but a slow
adoption of these business critical tools.
For example, modern workers need advanced technologies that support
working remotely, and anytime anywhere access to business-critical
information. However, although 84 percent of respondents indicated a
need to work remotely, 70 percent said they have inadequate tools to do
so, and 16 percent said they are not even allowed to bring their own
device to work.
The survey pointed to a number of other disconnects in the use of
technology to accomplish business critical functions.
“At Eccentex, we are striving to deliver a customizable cloud-based
platform that empowers the modern worker,” said Glen Schrank, CEO at
Eccentex Corporation. “We want workers to be satisfied with the tools
they are using, which enable tasks to be executed quickly, efficiently,
and effectively. Modern technology in the workplace not only increases
productivity, but keeps companies competitive in their respected
industry as well.”
