Implementing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy


Like it or not the mobile device revolution is changing the way we work. Organizations that embrace smartphones and tablets into their overall IT strategy can establish significant competitive advantages through improved customer service and cost efficiencies. If you are struggling with how best to fund and manage such a disruptive change the implementation of a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy could be the answer.

It has now become commonplace for employees to use dual computing devices. These are devices that can be used at both work and home and will often have a mix of both private and professional purposes. If this device is owned by the user it is classed as BYOD. BYOD is on the rise. A survey taken back on 2012 showed that around 95% of companies allow, on some level, the use of employee-owned devices, 36% offer full support for all employee owned devices and 48% support selected devices (Barbier et al 2012). BYOD is expected to be widespread within the near future, (van der Meulen & Rivera 2013).
