I recently ran a workshop on developing BYOD policies to a group of education sector ICT professionals. It was a great chance to socialise my ideas, thinking and recommendations and get some feedback from people who were actively working on and engaged with this subject. As part of the workshop I decided to organise my thoughts as a presentation, and decided to use Prezi as the way to present my thoughts to the group.
This is the 12th post in my series on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solutions (who knew it could stretch this far!). Here I want to briefly examine some of the myths about BYOD that are current in organisations and in the mobility marketplace.
This is my 11th post on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solutions. A discussion the other day with Microsoft’s Beat Schwegler (Head of Platform Strategy Group) brought out something that was behind much of my thinking, but I haven’t made explicit: my approach – and my recommended approach – is that BYOD is not actually about devices at all.
This is my tenth post on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). I hear lots of bemoaning of BYOD – the old joke about “bring your own disaster” – and how it is just being done to support executive toys. My view: so what?! Implementing BYOD is the right thing to do for most organisations. If you can ride the wave of executive demand and deliver something that improves the security and usability of IT in your organisation…what are you waiting for?! Go do it!
