I still don't get this. How does an employee get to tell the employer what s/he will or won't do? I am big on making our customers (the employees) happy, but opening my network and my job to potential liabilities just isn't gonna happen. Not to mention, you mean to ell me my employees are going to tell me I have to spend tens of thousands of dollars just so they can bring in an iPhone and work on it? No way!
I work for a mid-sized company and there is no way we allow BYOD. I honestly think it is more hype than reality. I know others in IT and they feel the same way I do.
i don't think "it's here and you better get used to it". I think that if it works for your company, great. However, that doesn't mean it works for ALL companies, which is what is inferred.
Love ya J. Ja, but I have to disagree with you on this one. that being said, i agree with you on some points, but only from a development standpoint. Many of our apps are already Web apps, but that doesn't mean we let people BYOD to access it. Developers should be making programs that don't require a week of training or a 500 page manual. Usability should be priority #2 (making it do what it was designed to do with a minimum of bugs is #1 ). Easy, app like installs? That doesn't work when your users don't have admin access (unless you use Click-Once, but there are problems with that too.
