BYOD isn't workable for large organizations. In business, you have tasks that need to be completed and find the tools to do it. You don't find tools and figure out what you can do with them. There are a myriad of tasks a tablet cannot do. If you're talking the device in BYOD being your laptop, then you're talking loss of control. When you have Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPPA concerns, BYOD just isn't feasible for the bulk of the work most end users need to do.

VDI is just dragging an old paradigm into the mobile age, and end users hate it. It's time to break free - IT can either use this opportunity to finally put stakes in legacy systems or prolong the agony.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
