Usage Policies

When employees use their own devices for business processes, it becomes necessary for businesses to be able to maintain some semblance of control over said devices. If an employee loses a device, for instance, a standard procedure is to remotely wipe the device of sensitive information. When implementing any sort of MDM (mobile device management) software, it’s important for IT to be clear and transparent about their usage policies for such tools so as not to invade employee privacy.

Much has already been said about BYOD and how it affects end users, as well as what it takes to build a successful BYOD policy. But one of the most important ways that BYOD affects the workplace is through the IT employees who are forced to completely change the way they think about workplace technology.

In addition to changing hardware policy, BYOD alters the dynamics of workplace interactions between IT professionals and employees. While helping teams transition into BYOD is a high priority, it’s also essential that IT teams prepare for changes in the way they’re perceived.

By allowing teams to bring their own devices, new and unexpected variables come into the mix. By preparing for these new obstacles and expectations, teams can create an effective, adaptive BYOD gameplan. In this slideshow, Icreon Tech provides eight of the most important ways that BYOD is changing the role of IT in your workplace.
