The title is misleading because users will still require IT manage hardware such as printers, networking equipment, servers, etc.
An ex-boss of mine was at least right [from 2007] on one thing: as soon as you turn on the WiFi, problems will happen. Between security, stopping who and what can get on the network, and supporting them. Let alone it opens further inspection for PCI DSS and other regulatory issues.
As soon as you open up BYOD, IT has to support not [maybe] a couple of OSs to maybe more than a dozen variants.
Of course a further problem is what happens when the user leaves the company. How to remove company data off the devices. Can't just wipe the device. They may have personal information as well.
