Accenture Mobility Research Report Infographic (Graphic: Business Wire)

Mobility is the most important digital technology priority for large enterprises, a new global study by Accenture (NYSE:ACN) has found. Reflecting its role as an enabler of other technologies in today’s digital businesses, 43 percent of respondents ranked mobility as a top one or two priority, with 77 percent placing it in the top five. Big data analytics came next with 72 percent putting it in the top five, followed by connected products* at 65 percent.

To shed light on how companies currently view and use digital technologies—especially mobility, one of the key enablers of the digital business – Accenture surveyed nearly 1,500 C-level executives at companies in 14 countries around world in the Accenture Mobility Insights Report 2014.

Over one third of enterprises (35 percent) expect the convergence of social**, mobile, analytics, cloud and connected products – grouped together as digital technologies – to increase their sales in existing markets, according to this research. Three quarters view the adoption of digital technologies as a strategic investment rather than something to be evaluated on a case by case basis, as 29 percent expect their adoption to generate additional revenue; 28 percent plan to build entirely new digital businesses or services as a result of convergence, and 27 percent expect to penetrate new markets altogether, showing significant promise around the world from mobility and digital technologies, and demonstrating that they are viewed as drivers for better engagement with customers, and the creation of new revenue streams.

However, new revenue streams are not the only financial consideration. One in ten respondents reported over 100 percent return on investment (ROI) for mobility implementations in the last two years, and while a further 26 percent saw returns of between 50 and 100 percent, those with the greatest ROI, the leaders, shared common traits in their approach to new technologies, which are viewed as enabling operational efficiency and long-term growth.
