Do you use your personal device at work? Join our tweet jam June 12

Do you use personal devices at work? What about your staff? Discuss the BYOD revolution during SearchCIO-Midmarket's tweet jam June 12.

It's your planner, communicator, weatherman, calculator, navigator, entertainer, news reporter, librarian, personal shopper -- no, it's not your mother, it's your personal device. Given its ubiquitous uses, using a personal device at work is almost a given in the business world today, but it can also presage scores of management headaches for IT departments.

Join SearchCIO-Midmarket's tweet jam Wednesday, June 12, at 3 p.m. EDT to discuss the incursion of the personal device at work and how bring your own device (BYOD) will shape the IT industry moving forward. The discussion will be hosted on Twitter from SearchCIO-Midmarket's Twitter handle (@CIOMidmarket) and will be facilitated by Assistant Site Editor Emily McLaughlin.
