Bring Your Own Device, or ‘BYOD’

Bring your Own Device (BYOD) is frequently represented as a simple ‘black and white’ topic, i.e. BYOD is bad, not allowed, and therefore the IT department wants to stop it, while company PCs are good and are all that people should be using. The reality is that BYOD is part of a very complex shift in how people work, how enterprises are changing their way of doing business, and a necessary element in the adoption of a technology revolution involving Cloud, Mobility, Big Data, and social tools.
