Seventy percent of employees who have a smartphone or tablet use the device to check work email and perform other work-related tasks, a new Ovum study reports. The study, which was released in June of 2013, found that the numbers fly in the face of anti-BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies. Almost 30 percent of those using their phones for work-related tasks are violating an existing corporate BYOD policy. Even if you have an anti-BYOD policy in effect, your business could still be at risk.
What does BYOD mean to your organization? That's a question that INC.com posed to several leaders in the BYOD/BYOA space - including our own Joe Moriarty, vice president of marketing for Content Raven.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies are being increasingly adopted by small, medium, and even enterprise-level operations all over the world. According to a recent study by Cisco Systems, businesses lower their operating costs and raise productivity when they implement bring your own device policies—even when they don't leverage said policies as much as possible.
“Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) is a practice that is increasingly becoming the norm in many offices. But just like any major change in the workplace, it helps to go consider important points about these changes, and set clear boundaries early in the process.
