Bring Your Own Device To Work Day – Every Day!
If you are lucky anyways.
There is a new trend emerging in IT departments across the globe. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), not to be confused with BYOB, is based on the idea that employees in IT departments will work better and will be more productive if they are able to bring and use their own device while working. This idea has been resisted for many moons, and in some sectors, still is. The movement is gaining ground though, and faster than one would have expected. There are many arguments for and many against the usage of a personal device at work, especially in regards to tech and informational safety but what can companies do to improve their security and still allow their employees to bring a piece of their own tech with them and use it at work?
- Embrace the idea and encourage it
- Build an app that is capable of transversing multiple platforms
- Build upon existing data sets and strengths
- Make the app serve as merely a gateway to company information
- Secure the perimeter of the app-API to ensure no improper data migration out of secure app setting
- Embrace cloud storage and computing integrated with GPS information for use tracking purposes
There are tons of ways that IT divisions could embrace the BYOD movement, hell, a happy employee is a more productive employee, and who isn’t happier when using their own phone instead of a fruity product a lot of companies like to try and pawn off on their employees.
I don’t personally work in an IT setting though I have longed for it for many years; I can imagine, though, that being able to bring, use, and function efficiently within your own device using your company’s data and app while working, and being comfortable with the device you’re carrying all day. Why learn 2 phones, 2 possibly very different operating systems, and have to remember 2 numbers? I think it is a little excessive and that this idea is being opposed is ludicrous to me.
Its time to get up, stand up, and fight for your right to BYOD!!!
