Over the past several years, one of the most important trends to impact organizations of all sizes – but particularly mid-sized and large organizations – is for employees to use their own smartphones and tablets in the course of their work. The so-called Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend was initiated several years ago, often by senior executives who had purchased an Apple iPhone or an Android device and then requested their IT department to support it instead of, or in addition to, the mobile device that the company had supplied to them. Osterman Research includes as a key element of the BYOD trend the various applications that employees use as part of their work, such as personal file sync services.
This white paper discusses the BYOD trend and provides data from an extensive survey conducted specifically for this document. The white paper also provides a brief overview of its sponsors – Accellion, Colligo Networks, EdgeWave, HyperOffice, McAfee and YouSendIt – and their relevant offerings.
