BYOD: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it

“BYOD” Bring Your own Device. A great idea that can easily turn messy.

 

Biztech has introduced the BYOD: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly infographic asking you to answer 6 easy but important questions before you launch into a BYOD situation.

 

If your company is considering allowing employees to bring their own devices to work, make sure you have a game plan in place.

BYOD has freed up many enterprises from the responsibility of exclusively purchasing and maintaining computing devices, such as notebooks, tablets and smartphones, but companies still need to have policies set in place to make things work.

BizTech magazine has put together an infographic that highlights six core questions every company should consider before moving forward with BYOD:

 

- Who buys the devices?


- What’s the right policy?


- What’s the employee’s role?


- What’s the impact on IT?


- How do we tackle security?


- How about apps?


For each of these questions, we’ve outlined a good answer, which we’d advise you to follow; a bad answer, which probably isn’t the best way to handle things; and an ugly answer, which should be avoided at all costs. Hopefully, this will help your company remain on the pleasant side of this growing workplace trend.
