Interesting trends...
Nice article....I liked to see the trends, though my sector (industrial manufacturing) falls a bit behind.

One part stood out for me....to say that "BYOD is officially no big deal -- 86% of Elite 100 companies let employees use company email on personal devices" - seems a bit disingenuous. I don't think anyone would consider "company email on personal devices" as BYOD, as every major provider has some web interface that any company would let employees use from anywhere.

Re: Interesting trends...
To me, that just shows me how far we've come with BYOD -- three, four years ago it was FAR from a given that you could access your work email on your personal device, especially if you were in a financial services company. 

Are you seeing the industrial manufacturing sector exploring internet of things/industrial internet ideas -- maybe collecting machine performance data for analysis and alerts?

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
