Make BYOD a Win-Win Situation

Enterprise IT leaders will need to consider how to address a number of areas such as: employee stipends; requirements on existing service contracts; and potential reimbursement for roaming or data overage charges. There will also be agreements to be worked out with the employees on installing software to securely separate work and personal data and enable the ability of the enterprise to remotely wipe a device that is lost or stolen. If done correctly, BYOD can actually make security more straightforward. Enterprise IT will need to consider how it will enact these types of policy agreements so that BYOD is a "win-win" for both sides.

Mobility continues to have a profound impact on the enterprise. Smartphones and tablets have quickly become part of the corporate ecosystem. Improvements in wireless and cellular coverage are enabling us to be productive anywhere, anytime. Today's workforce is demanding flexibility to choose to work their own way including choices ranging from which devices they carry to the platform they want to use on their desktop or laptop.

We're seeing industry leaders acknowledge the need for technology flexibility and take action to adapt and move enterprise applications to mobile devices. These trends have had a huge impact in making companies realize the power of mobile and its key role in the new IT enterprise reality. Is your organization taking the right steps to prepare?

In this slideshow, Eric Reed, CTO, GE Capital, has identified mobile trends that are having a significant impact on today's organizations.
