Why should I bring my own tools to the job? About the only job class where this makes sense is auto mechanics.
So the IT group gets its budget cut (because employees supply their own computing tools) and get hammered with supporting a new and constantly shifting set of end-user devices. The business unit gets a downcheck in productivity because of issues when an employee's tablet flakes out and isn't covered with an immediate repair/replace support plan. Senior management looks brilliant because they "saved" some money, and get to blame the rank and file for all the resulting problems.
Oh, I forgot. We workers get the "convenience" of using a device we're already familiar with. Never mind that corporate gets significant control and oversight over what else I do with it, 24/7.
A definite win-win scenario, as I see it.
