Of the 70% of organizations that want to do BYOD, at least half are not ready.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Telesoft, trusted experts in fixed and mobile Telecom Expense Management (TEM) software and services, has published a new whitepaper titled “Bring Your Own Device and Expense Management.” The whitepaper addresses the who, what, where and how of BYOD programs, and how they impact current wireless expense management (WEM) initiatives within large organizations.
“BYOD is a hot topic in the corporate technology world right now- I see news around the topic almost daily,” says Thierry Zerbib, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Telesoft. “For the most part, our clients are moving toward embracing a BYOD program to one degree or another. What we’re seeing is a gradual change movement in the BYOD direction, but we don’t foresee organizations going 100% BYOD anytime soon, if ever.”
A BYOD program can increase user satisfaction, maximize productivity through minimizing the learning curve, and eliminate the need to carry multiple devices for both business and personal use. While this sounds great in theory, in practice, there are many things to consider. A recent Network World article quoted Dionisio Zumerle, a principal research analyst at Gartner, stating that “of the 70% of organizations that want to do BYOD, at least half are not ready.” For those who are ready, it’s important to manage BYOD programs alongside their existing corporate-liable programs in order to gain a holistic view into the cost of all mobile programs.
“Corporate mobility programs will do their best to evolve to accommodate the user base – but not at the cost of risking proprietary corporate information, and not at the risk of spending more money to support that user base,” added Zerbib. “Organizations have worked very hard over the past 10 years to get their mobile expenses under control and reduce them wherever possible. BYOD opens the doors for these expenses to again run rampant and it’s important the enterprise has solutions in place to provide visibility and protect that from happening.”
