BYOD – Opportunity or Minefield

“Bring your own device” (BYOD) and “Bring your own computer” (BYOC) are hot topics for every CXO. Depending on who you listen to BYOD and BYOC are either minefileds or opportunities.

Our experience shows that BYOD/BYOC are opportunities but you must take the time to get it right for your organisation. Every organisation is different – meaning that each business must take a strategic look at the opportunity.

BYOD planning

Our clients proceed with their eyes wide open:

  • Business focused definition of the opportunity with detailed SWOT
  • Policies that are not only written but also tested
  • Security issues and solutions qualified
  • Boundaries
  • Costs to implement clearly defined
  • Financial modeling of the intended path
  • Management, measurement and Reporting
