BYOD technologies enable and better business

IT managers can’t afford to look at technologies as essential tools to help productivity, but rather, they will be forced to pursue advanced business degrees (or certificates) to learn how BYOD and its associated technologies can help their business become more competitive, improve cost-efficiencies, and ultimately enable business across all relevant categories.

Computing strategies like BYOD will also force managers to realize that ‘adoption to change’ and ‘agility’ will continue to be the foundation of their company’s ability to compete and survive beyond the twenty-first century.

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.
