It’s the battle hymn of the mobile worker: They want to use their personal iPhones, iPads and Android devices instead of company-issued BlackBerry smartphones and PlayBooks to get their jobs done. It’s part of a growing trend called BYOD, or bring-your-own-device.
While CIOs might gloat at BYOD’s perceived cost savings—no more BlackBerry purchases!—they’d be wrong to do so. Aberdeen Group found that a company with 1,000 mobile devices spends an extra $170,000 per year, on average, when they use a BYOD approach.
