Making the Move to BYOD
If there’s one thing that has really stood out to me since being a part of the IT industry, is the plethora of acronyms! I can barely keep them straight. But, there is one that keeps popping up more now than ever before…BYOD.
For those of you that may not have heard the term yet (or if you’re living under a rock), BYOD means Bring Your Own Device. It is a big deal…The Cisco Visual Networking Index Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast for 2011-2016 shows there will be more than 8 billion personal mobile-ready devices by 2016!
The BYOD trend is showing no signs of slowing, so now it’s time to embrace it and create a successful BYOD environment for your company.
To begin, here are Cisco’s Four Steps to Transform the Way Devices are Used and Managed in the Workplace:
