The new Software Usage and Waste Report from 1E offers an unprecedented insight into the modern enterprise desktop, and more information than ever before into how much the average business is squandering on unused software.
The report builds on previous 1E studies into this area by increasing the number of participating devices to 4.6 million (an increase of one million), expanding the study to encompass 149 organizations and 16 different industries in all.
It gives a snapshot of global, regional and industry specific waste levels.
The study reveals, for the first time, those applications that are most widely deployed among the survey’s participating businesses, the applications most likely to go unused, and those costing businesses the most money.
Last but not least, it provides guidance for enterprises looking to seize the financial opportunity implicit in the high waste levels.
