The report took in the views of over 4,000 full-time employees, supposedly making it the largest BYOD study to data, and found that there was a ‘concerning level of ignorance’ from IT professionals on the BYOD trend.

Ovum revealed that nearly half of [...]

Tablets lead the way, reports says mobile ad revenue will more than triple by 2016

A new Yankee Group report says mobile advertising revenue is set to grow globally three and a half times where it is today by 2016.

By 2016, the report says that over a quarter of smart mobile devices globally will be tablets.

“Yankee Group identifies mobility as the primary catalyst for disruptive change, and advertising is a prime example,” said Yankee Group principal analyst Jason Armitage, author of the [...]
