When you think about the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) phenomenon, does it send shivers up and down your spine?
If you answered “no” – great! Sounds like you have everything under control. But, if you answered, “yes” – you’re not alone according to our research.
These days, business and IT leadership wake up in a world where one-third of young employees use three different devices. For many, it’s a nightmare because there’s a gang of monsters hiding under the bed (i.e. security, cost, management, etc.). No wonder 73% of UK IT directors surveyed said they are concerned BYOD will cause IT costs to “spiral out of control.” Their fears are supported by Aberdeen Group’s finding that a company with 1,000 mobile devices spends an extra $170,000 per year, on average, when it uses a BYOD approach.
Yet, most IT leaders aren’t disputing the business case for BYOD.
With all this Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, filling the market, we’re pleased to offer advice and practical solutions in the latest eGroup eBook, “7 Steps to a Sensible BYOD Strategy (So You Can Sleep at Night).” In it, you will learn how to devise and implement an effective BYOD strategy. Enjoy – and don’t let those gang of monsters win!
