IT managers can no longer ignore BYOD

Employees are the ones driving the BYOD trend within the workplace, simply because they continue to demand it from their employers. As technology evolves and mobile devices continue to take the workplace by storm, employers can no longer ignore BYOD. It’s time they embrace it.

Research shows mobile device computing (not just cell phones) adoption rates are growing by the millions each year. Non-IT professionals, including employees at all levels within organizations, are bringing and using these devices (a.k.a. BYOD) to work.

BYOD is now a staple in the workplace, forcing IT managers to think past the typical problems (upgrades, training, apps management) first associated with the trend.

While some still struggle to integrate smartphones and tablets into operations, smart IT managers are using the BYOD trend to create innovative new business processes, like using BYOD as a tool to develop client-ready mobile initiatives, or pairing devices with other developing technologies, like embedded sensors, to capture business intelligence.

Hugo Perez, managing director at United Data Technologies, has identified five BYOD realities facing IT managers today.
