BYOD: Quick Tips and Facts

By Francis Czekalski, Consulting Architect, LogicsOne

There's no doubt that BYOD is a top buzzword and priority for IT decision maker in 2013.  This is certainly a complex issue that requires a lot of planning and commitment if your organization expects positive results. Below are a couple quick points on BYOD that your organization should keep in mind when implementing and monitoring a policy.

  • BYOD programs have the effect of increasing the lifespan of devices because people tend to take care of items better since they are choosing the type of device.
  • Security is a HUGE issue around BYOD. BYOD programs can increase security, but, when not monitored correctly can actually lead to a whole new pathway for data leakage.
  • Offline computing still tends to be an issue so some hybrid model needs to be adopted.
  • It is often believed that with a BYOD program you no longer need to support the clients- this is simply not the case. User productivity will demand that some touch is done on the end user's computer.

A couple interesting findings from a recent study from Dell (

  • 70% of IT Decision makers believe BYOD helps boost employee productivity and customer response time.
  • 59% of IT Decision makers believe they would be at a competitive disadvantage if they did not embrace personally-owned devices
  • 56% of IT Decision makers believe that BYOD has completely changed their company's culture
