Is your company planning for the future of mobility? If not, you're at serious risk of being left behind. The heavy integration of mobile technologies in both the personal and business spheres is driving IT departments to think differently when it comes to developing technology roadmaps.
One major concern: BYOD. Bring your own device goes beyond employees toting their personal smartphones to work or accessing business email from home on their tablet PC. BYOD is spilling into other areas of the enterprise, such as bring your own apps (BYOA), bring your own cloud (BYOC) and bring your own network (BYON) -- all of which are changing the mobile landscape and complicating enterprise mobile device policies. Here, we examine next-generation mobile strategies and how emerging BYOD trends are forcing IT leaders to rethink long-held beliefs about where, and how, work gets done.
This CIO Essential Guide on planning for the future of mobility is part of the CIO Briefings series, which is designed to give IT leaders strategic management and decision-making advice on timely topics.
