I know the CIO's were split on the benefits of BYOD, but once we got our doctors to use Tigertext for text messaging in HIPAA envioronments, we saw a big increase in productivity. I agree that BYOD is one of the biggest issues now facing CIO's.
We are dealing with this issue in the healthcare industry and it is a big issues because of the HIPAA compliance issues.
Biggest being that doctors use thier cellphones and tablets to send confidential info by text message, such as patient discharge times.
We ended up solving the problem by getting the doctors to use Tigertext so their text messages would auto delete after a certain period of time.
This is not a big IT solution, but it was cost effective and took care of the issue we are most likely to be sued over.
Still, the IT industry as a whole really has several large issues to deal with concerning BYOD, and it may take companies implementing several software and services to deal with it.
