How BYOD is Viewed in the Enterprise

It's Everywhere  The BYOD craze has officially taken hold. In fact, 85% of companies support BYOD.

The BYOD craze is sweeping the enterprise. Companies around the globe are warming to the idea of allowing consumer-focused products into the enterprise for the purpose of doing business. And in some cases, the benefits of BYOD have registered with companies that are willing to invest in it.

Although it wasn't always a willing participant, IT has been ushering in the BYOD craze in the enterprise. And employees, happy to know that they've finally won one, are gleefully using their own smartphones, tablets and computers in the office.

In a new study from Samsung, BYOD’s impact on the enterprise is illustrated both from the IT side and the employee side. And the study shines light on the many important distinctions that arise in the enterprise over what BYOD means to those on the IT side and those on the business side.
