The Executive's Guide to BYOD and the Consumerisation of IT

The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon is reshaping the way IT is purchased, managed, delivered, and secured. And because it’s part of the growing IT consumerisation trend, IT leaders can’t ignore it. Nor should they want to.

From something as simple as allowing workers to access corporate email on their personal smartphone to a full-blown program in which the company subsidises the purchase of personal laptops, BYOD has the potential to increase worker productivity, create a more flexible working environment, and even reduce IT costs.

But BYOD also brings significant challenges. IT must secure data on devices the company may not own. Help desks may need to support a larger selection of devices and operating systems than they currently do. And you may need to develop new policies and procedures for device procurement and management, application deployment, and data ownership.

In this white paper from Tech Republic, key issues around real challenges of BYOD are discussed.
