“Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD), the acronym for employees using their personal devices in the workplace—typically mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones—to access organizational resources, poses an interesting set of opportunities and challenges. Opening up select enterprise applications to employee-owned devices can yield significant productivity results, increase morale, and generate cost advantages over the traditional model of company-provisioned equipment.

There are many benefits to the BYOD appraoch, but this paper helps outline some of the ways to control BYOD risks and outlines other factors that influence your decision to establish a BYOD policy. Like Cloud-based software delivery, BYOD presents such compelling advantages over the traditional approach that its emergence as the dominant mobile strategy appears to be a question of “when” rather than “if.”
