The Bring Your Own Device, also known as BYOD, concept has revolutionized many industries. By allowing employees to bring their own devices into the office for business use it has helped companies cut hardware and service costs, although in some cases it has also resulted in an added burden upon the IT departments tasked with maintaining these devices.

BYOD has had five years to grow upon the enterprise world. Other new developments along the way such as wearable devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) have created additional opportunities for the concept to evolve. Organizations are now faced with more complex choices regarding what outside devices — if any — to integrate within their environments, and how to get business value out of them.

Tech Pro Research did a new study in November 2014 to revisit the subject of BYOD and see how it has changed. We also sought to establish how wearables have fared in the past six months, as well as factor in how the Internet of Things devices may play a role and if so what part they are playing. Here are the major takeaways from our survey, the full details of which are reviewed and analyzed in this report.
