BYOD Taking the Enterprise by Storm

A surprising 45 percent of IT directors say that their personal hardware and software is far more useful to them in the office than those solutions provided by their employers.

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) craze is sweeping across the enterprise. From large companies to small firms, employees are learning it's not just ok, it's expected that they bring in their personal devices and use them in the office. Upon doing so, the IT side needs to ensure that those products sport the latest and greatest security features and have all of the corporate bells and whistles workers need to do their jobs. It’s an additional chore for IT, but it’s one that an increasing number of companies are adopting. Wondering why? So was CSC, a company that delivers technology-enabled business solutions to companies. The organization surveyed IT executives worldwide to find out why BYOD is being adopted so quickly, and how that adoption is impacting the corporate world. The survey results are both illustrative and instructive. And they’re worth checking out for any CIO that has either embraced BYOD or is looking to do so. Believe it or not, BYOD is the future. And the latest survey from CSC makes that abundantly clear.
