From the millennial masses up through the C-suite, employees are using personal technology—be it laptops, tablets, smartphones, or cloud computing services accessing their companies’ networks—at work, fueling the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend.
It’s generating a lot of buzz about BYOD, and depending on who’s doing the talking, conversations tend to center around productivity (end-users), security/privacy (CIOs and IT departments), or cost (finance folks).
SummaLogic’s Robert Keahey chummed the BYOD waters recently at focus.com when he wrote: “We’re a couple of years into this new paradigm, and with the use of SaaS, cloud-based integrated business suites and digital supply chains on the rise, we should step back and see what we’ve learned.
Has BYOD helped or hindered your business model? Has IT been able to respond to this challenge/opportunity? … What are your experiences (or those of the companies with which you work)? Success stories? Horror stories?”
