Get over the BYOD migraine: Embrace mobile

Five Steps to Embrace Mobile Technology
Now... the job defines the tools

For IT departments, the explosive growth of mobile in the workplace is a bit of a nightmare—a BYOD migraine actually! It was already difficult to keep those rows of laptops all running the same software versions, but mobile puts the final nail in the coffin of controlled IT. Mobile is achieving something no other movement has managed: it’s creating a work environment in which the job, not the organization, defines the tools. Personal devices and preferences—independent of the rules and practices of administrators—roam free, where users share and communicate at will.

Meeting new expectations 

OK, maybe I’m dreaming a little, but I believe that companies who don’t incorporate this mobile revolution into the workplace will suffer the BYOD migraine. Shadow IT is already springing up everywhere, creating a parallel infrastructure that connects devices our employees actually want to use. I am expecting my business tool to look and feel as cool as my consumer mobile apps, and if it doesn’t, I find my own alternatives to get work done.

It's time to embrace mobile

Instead of battling the mobile revolution in the name of unity and security, it’s time to embrace it. Recently, I wrote an article on this topic where I talk about five ways to move forward and not get left behind. You can read the article on TweakYourBiz.com
