Apps and Services Management

Under a BYOD policy, one of the most important roles of IT is to manage enormous lists of licenses and accounts for apps and services across employee devices. As more of the company’s technology moves to the cloud, there will become more to account for, and IT will have to compile comprehensive lists of software for their BYOD users.

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.
