There is little doubt that bring your own device (BYOD) to work is fast becoming a major factor in the way that employees work for a business. There are now simply too many devices from too many different providers to keep track of. The problem is that if you run a business then you NEED to keep track of them as they will typically have corporate information on them.
The issue with BYOD is that the turn-over of these devices is much greater than was ever experienced with desktop PCs. This means that a soon as you have one device under control then it has been replaced with another with loads more functionality. Now imagine this for every employee with one, two, and more devices.
Another thing businesses need to consider is the fact that the domination of devices in the workplace is only going to increase. For many employees, what device they receive or get to use when they commence work is more important than any other conditions they receive as part of their employment contract.
So the big question for most businesses is what are you doing about the move to BYOD? What policies and procedures are you putting in place to manage these challenges?
