Charting the Rising Tide of Bring-Your-Own Technology
When employees first started bringing their own devices (BYOD) to work, IT had to scramble to create infrastructure and processes that could support such a wide array of form factors and operating systems. But with devices comes technology. And if an employee is going to BYOD, then BYOT or Bring Your Own Technology isn’t far behind.
Unlike BYOD, BYOT takes into account additional form factors, as well as platforms, application software, and web-based services like storage and collaboration that employees may choose to utilize. This is a trend that will increasingly affect the policies and budgets of CIOs over the next 2-3 years.
Forrester’s research is based on a multi-regional survey of 10,000 information workers and includes:
- How centralized procurement and control of IT devices could shift to the employee
- Insight into which technologies employees choose and buy
- How CIOs can use these trends to determine staffing levels and competencies, allocate corporate budgets and develop new policies and governance
