I’m happy to report that we have already received responses from 30 different countries, with America first, the Netherlands second and the UK on the third position. There is no change in the order of the countries, however we still need to get 20 more to beat last year’s amazing survey. So are you from a cool country? Start now and help the community.

State of EUC 2018 As the survey questions are quite detailed and there are quite a few, it takes on average 16 minutes to fully complete the survey. There are always exceptions of course, the fastest participant completed all the questions in 5,4 minutes while the slowest (or should I say most thorough one) took almost 8 hours.

When it comes to devices we see that tablet usage has decreased a little bit since last year and smartphone usage has increased significantly. Our data also shows that Apple is losing some market share in our community. From all the people who completed the survey on their phone 65% of them where done on an iPhone last year where this year its “Just” 49%.
