I believe in BYOD (Bring your own device)

Hi all,

Some years ago a friend of mine told me about the BYOD (Bring your own device) idea.

Since that time I believe in this idea, unfortunately the IT departament in a lof of companies do not implement new ideas and a lot of them are living in the past.

But today a lot of big companies are implementing it.

What is BYOD?

"Bring your own device (BYOD) (also called bring your own technology (BYOT), bring your own phone (BYOP), and bring your own PC (BYOPC)) means the policy of permitting employees to bring personally owned mobile devices (laptops, tablets, and smart phones) to their workplace, and use those devices to access privileged company information and applications.[1] The term is also used to describe the same practice applied to students using personally owned devices in education settings.[2]
BYOD is making significant inroads in the business world, with about 75% of employees in high growth markets such as Brazil and Russia and 44% in developed markets already using their own technology at work.[3] In most cases, businesses simply can't block the trend. Some[who?] believe that BYOD may help employees be more productive.[4]Others[who?] say it increases employee morale and convenience by using their own devices and makes the company look like a flexible and attractive employer.[5] Many[who?] feel that BYOD can even be a means to attract new hires, pointing to a survey that indicates 44% of job seekers view an organization more positively if it supports their device. [6]
