Infographic: BYOD increases work, but not spending, for IT

This Tech Pro Research infographic illustrates several BYOD trends from 2015, including the effect BYOD programs have on IT budgets and support responsibilities.

The latest report from Tech Pro Research, TechRepublic's sister site, examined this question and many more.

But many said their IT support responsibilities have actually gone up.
