Mobile Consumerization and BYOD Strategy Is Not For Everyone, Says Alsbridge Report
The latest report by Alsbridge discusses how to successfully implement a BYOD strategy through careful evaluation, the right sponsorship and the right implementation plan.
Dallas (I-Newswire) February 24, 2014 - A new report from sourcing, benchmarking and telecom advisory firm, Alsbridge, Inc., outlines how to successfully implement a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy through careful evaluation, the right sponsorship and the right implementation plan.
According to the report by Alsbridge Inc., innovation in consumer technology is outpacing business, and many employees are using their personal devices and applications for work to leverage those innovations. In fact, 73 percent of enterprises now allow non-IT managed devices to access corporate resources.
"As the proliferation of employee-owned smartphones and tablets continues to accelerate, employees everywhere are growing impatient with standard issue devices and capabilities that many enterprises still deploy," says Alsbridge Inc., CEO, Chip Wagner. CIOs and their IT organizations are faced with a profound challenge of satisfying the demand for device, platform and application flexibility while mitigating the financial, operational, technical, and security risks that emerge.
Bring your own mobile device is part of the larger trend in the consumerization of IT, but it is one of the fastest growing segments and certainly the most visible in the media. Armed with a credit card, business units are provisioning cloud infrastructure, storage, hosted applications, collaboration tools and even customer-facing systems in hours and days.
"BYOD and broader consumerization strategies are not for everyone," explains Dieter Thompson, president, Alsbridge Inc., "It requires careful evaluation, the right sponsorship, and the right implementation plan to be successful." The benefits should be meaningful and compelling, and encompass business advantages that stretch far beyond cost savings.
Marketplace dynamics and the technologies available to the enterprise will continue to change rapidly. Like the technology it represents, every mobile strategy is a transitional state and a fluid plan. Staying ahead of the competitive curve takes long term commitment, resources a partnership with a market-savvy advisor.
