The consumerization of IT and “bring your own device” (BYOD) phenomena that took information technology departments by storm over the past two years is an unstoppable force. Organizations around the world, of every size and across virtually every industry, are therefore embracing BYOD strategies. For executives and sales personnel, a “BYOD” program lets them consolidate their previously-carried standard-issue device and their shiny, new favorite personal device. Now they can carry just one device for work and life, streamlining their communications and improving their experience.
Organizations realize that enabling personally-owned devices makes employees happier and more productive, and as such, more than three-quarters of organizations allow employee-owned devices at work, according to the Center for Telecom Environment Management Standards.
