Whether we like it or not, the revolution is here. The consumerization of IT – or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) – is transforming client computing as we know it.
More and more companies are finding that employees want the freedom to choose the devices they work with. This is putting additional pressure on IT to find ways to safely and securely integrate a variety of new devices into their infrastructures. And while BYOD does present challenges, the one thing everyone does agree on is that ultimately, it benefits users and organizations by creating better work-life balance, improved productivity and greater flexibility.
As our infographic points out, this revolution is happening quickly. By 2014 mobile will outpace desktop internet usage. So it’s best to start addressing the challenges now – to ensure that you have a plan and policies in place to survive and thrive as the workplace environment changes.
