More than a quarter of chief information officers across every industry nationwide have yet to sign on with any type of mobile strategy, according to a new survey released today.

After reaching out to some 2,300 CIOs across different industries, IT staffing company Robert Half Technology officials found some 28 percent of them currently have no mobile strategy, with healthcare CIOs reporting the lowest mobile adoption rates.

Healthcare services had the greatest percentage of respondents -- 36 percent -- reporting that their organization had no mobile technology strategy. The business services and retail industries had the highest percentages of respondents -- 65 percent and 63 percent, respectively -- using a blend of apps and mobile-friendly web pages.
