    range of of mobility solution unique users (e-mail,calender, SFA, CRM, ERP, etc.)   vis-a-vis number of PCs for the same orgnisation parameter would have been good addition to survey.

    CIOs should look at MEAP rather than point Mobility solutions. Enterprise Mobility involves extension of Enterrpise Processes and that would involve taking your ERP, CRM, SCM, HR etc. processes anytime, anywhere in the hands of the employee. Enabling offline mobile transactions will also be the key as bandwidth / network connectivity is still a concern. A Business Process Optimisation & Improved User Interface approach will be key in defining the right Mobility strategy.
