Special Report: Confronting BYOD
Aragon Research has a new Special Report confronting one of the hottest issues today, BYOD (bring your own device). The issue of BYOD confronts every enterprise, and most organizations are already managing it in some fashion, or developing plans to do so. There is no stopping employees from bringing their own devices to work, connecting and getting work done – especially when their workplace is on the road or in their home. Although it is essential that enterprises address the management, cost and security issues of BYOD, taking a stance of enabling the workforce to bring its own tools can deliver agility and productivity.
This special report has four different research notes that can help you get ahead of this emerging shift.
BYOD: Bring Your Own Workplace
The message of “BYOD: Bring Your Own Workplace” is that BYOD is at the forefront of the new way of working, and it is not going away. Any worker that is not tethered to their desk is a prime candidate, and the individual’s focus on leveraging the new mobile tools for their personal productivity is a gain for business.
Mobility, and the BYOD aspect of it, is becoming the foundation for how work gets done. Enterprises need to engage this movement, and focus on creating access and management aligned with overall business needs and priorities. Read about the BYOD workplace here.
Take The Right Approach To Developing A BYOD Strategy
Enterprises are under considerable pressure to take action regarding device security and data protection as BYOD expands. It’s important to take a holistic approach that addresses the big picture, where devices are just the beginning.
Policy and strategy are at the top of these considerations. At the other end of the issues is a focus on managing costs, operational management and user support. In the Research Note titled “Take The Right Approach To Developing A BYOD Strategy”, Aragon outlines each of the areas that enterprises should consider. You can access this research note here.
Planning Framework for BYOD
A spectrum of options and implementation styles exist for enterprises to take on BYOD. There is a critical need to balance the security and management priorities of the business with user demands, and the potential to leverage the investments individuals make in improving themselves.
With any approach to BYOD there are common elements that must be considered. Aragon outlines five factors that provide a framework for planning BYOD In “Planning Framework for BYOD“. Learn more about this framework by accessing the research note here.
A Mobile Management Taxonomy
Managing mobility is frequently equated with mobile device management (MDM). However, enterprise mobile management (EMM) comprises a wide range of capabilities and mobile management products. In “A Mobile Management Taxonomy” we address the differences in approach and key terminology as EMM unfolds.
Beneath the emerging EMM concept we’re finding that terms that are often misunderstood, and comparing products is challenging with overlapping approaches. The mobile management taxonomy offers an overall perspective of the essentials for understanding them. The taxonomy research note can be accessed here.
BYOD is here to stay, and getting control of mobility is a challenge in which expert advice is a key to success. To learn more about becoming an Aragon Research client, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1 (888) 650-2586.
