Cloud Services and Mobility – The BYOD Challenge

End-users will use their smart devices and want simple access to the latest business files. This means IT will need new security features to manage all the different devices out there. Other corporate considerations are the number of systems end-users need to perform their jobs, how much time does it take to learn new systems, and how easily an employee can find, share and/or collaborate on information from different sources. A good solution will connect, share and collaborate internally with external users with a design that can access any mobile or computing device.

The “Cloud” presents additional pathways for outsourcing and delivering services. Questions remain on just what functions and cloud services should be used, whether to employ public or private cloud services, and cloud security. At this same time employees are embracing mobile devices to do all their computer related work. Recognizing this trend most businesses allow the use of personal mobile devices to be used in the work place. A recent survey by the Aberdeen Group found that 72% of those polled allow the practice of BYOD – bring your own device.

The business use of personal devices used at work is rising dramatically, and this is true for both Apple iPhones and Android devices. The principal reason for allowing BYOD Smartphones and tablets is from employee demands for more mobile functionality.
