Cloud and the consumerisation of IT have changed the face of end user computing, and the desktop in particular irrevocably.
The discourse between business and technology
This is the sixteenth post in my series on BYOD. In my last post on the subject I discussed a range of technologies that can be used to solve issues raised by BYOD. Here I’d like to give my broad recommendations around which of those technologies are most likely to solve the kinds of problems that are typically found in organisations that are looking to embrace BYOD.
This is the fifteenth post in my series on BYOD. I have mostly avoided talking about technology, as in many ways that is the least important, and the most straightforward aspect of dealing with BYOD. Most people automatically think of Mobile Device Management (MDM) when they think of mobile or BYOD technology, but that is far from the only viable solution. Here I’ll outline the key technology solutions that are available to help you deliver usable and effective BYOD to your organisation.
This is the thirteenth posting in my series on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). In a recent post I looked at 5 myths about BYOD that I had come across a lot. Kenneth quite rightly pointed out that I had looked at only technology related myths, and challenged me to look at more business related ones, as he believed that they were just as important. He is quite right, though because of my day job I wasn’t running into as many of that kind of myth. He helpfully got me started with some suggestions in a comment on my BYOD myths post.
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 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!
