Why Read This Report

Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders have the opportunity to offload costs and responsibility while increasing productivity by launching formal bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs that meet employees' increasing demands to use the technology of their choice. However, corporate BYOD programs are not stagnant one-size-fits-all initiatives. I&O executives must develop a framework to continuously improve and evolve their BYOD programs by examining six factors, including employee profiles, device diversity, mobile application requirements, and self-service initiatives. I&O professionals optimizing employee technology strategy can use this report to define the key factors and attributes that establish and continually improve their corporate BYOD programs and enable their workforces.
