Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) has become one of the most influential trends that has or will touch each and every IT organization. The term has come to define a megatrend occurring in IT that requires sweeping changes to the way devices are used in the workplace.
What is BYOD? Does it mean employees pay for their own devices they use for work? Possibly, but the BYOD trend means much more. It is about end users being able to use the compute and communication devices they choose to increase productivity and mobility. BYOD means any device, with any ownership, used anywhere.
This whitepaper discusses how this trend will affect agencies, explores the challenges it creates for IT, and outlines technologies that are part of the solution.
