Engage End Users

Engage and work with end users to understand what they need and how they work. A BYOPC policy is only relevant if the end users are engaged and involved, as it is likely that they are already finding innovative ways to access content from their own devices, whether those devices are smartphones, tablets or PCs. Corporate IT needs to form a partnership with the workforce to ensure that service adoption and usage remains high, with appropriate feedback to help improve all IT services, BYOPC being a significant focus. This closeness will help ensure that the BYOPC program is successful as the workforce is involved in both the setup and ongoing concerns.

The advent of bring your own device (BYOD) has brought about a revolution in the way employees access corporate resources, namely via their smartphones and tablets. And, although initially resisted by IT departments, many organizations now have a policy in place and allow employees to use their own smart devices for work. Enterprises, however, are no longer focusing only on BYOD, but instead have broadened their responsibility to encompass the bring-your-own-PC (BYOPC) movement.

As BYOPC evolves and takes hold, IT departments must decide whether the current technology offerings in the market are reliable and secure enough to protect corporate data. To do so, organizations need to establish a solid plan for dealing with BYOPC. In this slideshow, 1E outlines steps organizations should take to develop a successful BYOPC program.
