What Byte is About
The Consumerization of IT (CoIT) is one of the most important computing topics of our times. CoIT is the introduction into the enterprise, planned and otherwise, of devices that were designed as consumer technologies: tablets, smart phones, and social media are classic examples.
Byte is here to examine technology in the context of CoIT. The subject relates closely to important IT issues like security and manageability. It's an issue that reaches both IT and users, and it's an issue where both groups need to listen carefully to the requirements of the other: IT may wish to hold off on allowing devices and software onto the network when they haven't been properly tested and can't be properly supported. But the use of these devices in the enterprise has the air of inevitability for a good reason. They make users more productive and users are demanding them.
We intend to help you find the middle ground. You can expect relevant content on important matters in Byte. We're not just another technology site.
