As the “bring your own device” movement gains momentum in the corporate world, many organizations are rethinking their mobile strategies. While it was once unheard of for workers to use personal computing devices on the job, some high-profile companies have already made the move to adopt BYOD policies, allowing employees to use the computing devices of their choice.
Being prepared to deal with devices that aren’t company issued is a major first step before BYOD adoption. If your IT department is not ready to support these devices, the network and security ramifications could have an adverse effect on your business.
However, while such policies might require changes in corporate strategy, they can yield a number of benefits, including increased productivity, lower equipment support costs and enhanced employee morale.
