The XYZ’s of BYOD

Posted February 20, 2015

Most of the considerable attention given to the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend is focused on management and sales professionals who use their mobile computers for messaging and to access spreadsheets, documents and other mainstream applications. The BYOD value proposition and strategy considerations are quite different for workers who depend heavily on their devices for job-specific tasks and workflows like field service, inspection, delivery and other activities that may be completed miles from the home office. This white paper identifies BYOD considerations that are specific to these “device-dependent” mobile workers so enterprises can accurately assess the true costs and strategic value of BYOD in those environments. It will specifically address BYOD program implications for:

  • The devices themselves
  • Mobile device software and the developers who create and maintain it
  • The mobile workers who depend on devices to complete their core job tasks
  • The IT staffers that support them

BYOD is an appealing concept for workers and enterprise management alike, but the true value of BYOD programs comes down to how well the details are thought through and managed. Not all devices are created equal, so allowing BYOD necessitates making some tradeoffs that can sacrifice performance to accommodate user preference. There are more of these tradeoffs than most people realize, especially when devices are used by workers who perform specialized tasks.
