Eliminating the CIOs' BYOD Blind Spot

  • Eliminating the CIOs' BYOD Blind Spot-

    Cost savings associated with BYOD/telecommuters help turn IT into a profit center

    When properly deployed and professionally monitored and managed, BYOD can help IT managers turn their department into a profit center. How, you ask?  BYOD will pressure IT managers to embrace application streaming and virtualization technologies like FlexPod Express and VMWare. These technologies allow for the secure publishing and centralized access to core business systems and software. 

    Companies, especially those with large call centers, can essentially establish a telecommuting policy to allow employees to work from home using their own computing devices. If employees are offered the flexibility to work from home, they will be happier and their employers will reap huge savings (office space, Internet connectivity, increased-monitored productivity, electricity).

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.
