Work-Life Balance and Single Device Desire Drives BYOD, but Managing BYOD Behavior Still Challenges IT Managers

FARMINGTON, Conn., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Employees want access to corporate data and applications whether they are at the office or at home. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend supports the use of one device for both work and personal tasks. BYOD also refers to an IT strategy where employees are allowed to use their personal devices such as laptop, smartphone, tablet or "phablet" to conduct company work either in-addition or instead of company supplied devices. A "live to work" mentality manifests when boundaries blur and a line separating work and personal time is no longer so clear. This type of culture is where BYOD thrives.

On the technology side, the prevalence of smartphones and tablets represents a key driver of BYOD.  As BYOD continues to penetrate businesses and organizations, the great issue shifts to how it will be managed. Managing BYOD is a complicated task. From data security risks down to the intricacies of employee behavior, BYOD policies and management practices will vary depending on the firm. Predictably, BYOD adoption may lag for smaller firms that lack the technology to properly manage BYOD.

Global Information (GII) presents a selection of BYOD market research reports below. These reports provide survey results; examine the critical topics surrounding BYOD; analyze BYOD take-up in different environments; and discuss trending topics in enterprise mobility including BYOT and COPE strategies.

BYOD: An Emerging Market Trend in More Ways than One

"Bring your own device" (BYOD) has caused mobiles to flood into enterprises from all directions, providing a wakeup call for IT. Business managers are no longer content with clunky old commodity devices that entrench outdated work practices.

This IDC Insight examines the changing adoption of different BYOD policies and practices in firms of different sizes, including home-based businesses. Company support of employee-owned notebooks, smartphones, and tablets is examined and the share of employees using different devices is also compared by company size. Expectations for future BYOD support is examined, including potential adoption of virtual desktops and other secure alternatives to support remote workers.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) vs. Corporate Owned-Personally Enabled (COPE) Strategy for Enterprise Mobility

COPE (Corporate Owned Personally Enabled) can ensure same feeling as BYOD provides among employees but with certain key benefits to the enterprise. Under COPE employees are allowed to use their devices for company as well as personal works but it handles the mobile device management (MDM) process differently.

With COPE, employees will be offered to choose a device among a range of pre-approved devices which either will fully or partially be funded by organization. Even their pre-owned devices can be incorporated under the program instead of buying a new device. The company will own the line of corporate network services offered to client devices, thus anytime company can disconnect from corporate networks but the employees will be allowed to use their personal task like, email, social networking, gaming etc. at any stage.

Why BYOT is More Important than BYOD

Bring your own technology (BYOT) will eventually encompass BYOD for devices but also facilitate user's integrating their own devices, software and services with those from the enterprise. For example, take the use of calendars where the employee desires to view his personal calendar and work calendar in his or her desktop or mobile device.

This report outlines the transition from BYOD to BYOT and provides recommendations for enterprise IT executives on how to best deal with the transition. Report highlights include a Unisys case study on the state of BYOD, getting past the "mobile IT gap" and the mobile elite versus enterprise IT.
