The "new" tech savvy young professionals are renowned for breaking a PC/software in record time. Let's just be realistic here companies will not allow IT to say "sorry for your $100K sales pitch but we do not support your self bought device" or "you will have to go to the store, we will not help you, it's policy"
Hence , IT will need to support a plethora of PC's/phones invest heavily in different licences (multi OS and device connection licenses) and troubleshoot if the issue is coming from the company or from the BYOD side. This means IT hours and education (more hours) and most of us do realise (user) hardware is the cheapest component in a network.
So yes you can go the BYOD route and sometimes for good reason, but please do not package it to be something it is not.
