Why Read This Report

This research, based on a multi-regional survey of almost 10,000 information workers, provides insight into a growing trend that will increasingly affect the policies and budgets of CIOs and their business executive counterparts over the next two to three years. The report illuminates the bring-your-own-technology (BYOT) phenomenon, an inexorable shift from centralized procurement and control of IT devices to stewardship of technologies that are largely self-provisioned by employees. Insights into which technologies employees choose and buy with personal or corporate funds will help CIOs determine staffing levels and competencies, better allocate corporate IT budgets, and develop new policies and governance.
