Understanding the bring-your-own-device landscape
By invitation only
For UK enterprises the employees' attachment to their devices, whether personal or enterprise-owned, raises complex questions about the dividing line between work and leisure, and the acceptable use of technology through the working day and beyond.
The rising use of personal technologies for work-related activities has coined the phrase Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD). It is a trend that has potential to bring substantial benefits to enterprises, but can equally present considerable risks and implementation challenges.
Those executives most likely to see positive outcomes from BYOD will understand its potential impact across the organisation and develop a strategic response which balances the needs of the company and its employees. The reward for successfully navigating a way forward is likely to be tangible benefits in terms of corporate performance, employee satisfaction and workplace efficiency.
This report comprises an effort to formulate an evidence-based commentary on the state of BYOD in the United Kingdom. It attempts to cut through confusion and offer pragmatic advice incorporating a broad range of management perspectives – from IT to risk management, tax and talent. The report focuses particularly on the difference in ease of BYO by device: bringing a computer into work to access corporate data can be far more complex than accessing work email via a personal smartphone. It is hoped that the report will help executives understand the BYOD landscape and provide a framework for discussion and debate.
