The growth of social networking, media sharing and the usage of smart devices over the past five years has fuelled the consumerization of I.T in the post-PC-era and the BYOD trend. As more workers look to move away from the traditional 9-to-5 work routine, they need to be more mobile, enabling them to work at any time and from any place.
Rather than accepting company laptops and mobile devices, employees are seeing the benefit of being able to work on their own devices for ease of use, convenience and enhanced usability of daily activities.
The move to enterprises adopting a broader mobile strategy is positive for companies – research has shown that employee productivity is increased by 23% when greater enterprise mobility is adopted, which also serves to enhance the organization’s competitiveness and improve operational efficiencies.
The opportunities are clear, but enterprise I.T managers face many challenges to retain control of access, enforce security policies and control administration expense.
