BYOD helps IT managers create and access controlled app stores, allowing users to download pre-approved applications

Once an IT manager has a ‘happy client’ (an average score of 90 percent plus in their quarterly business review (QBR) surveys), they can begin to embrace BYOD and offer specialized and approved software solutions from their corporate AppStore. This not only makes getting the apps easier and faster, but also removes any security concerns that come with employees downloading apps from external sources.

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.
