Re: BYOD -> BYOE
This concept of BYOE only further underscores how vital it is for IT to truly know, understand, and empathize with what business users want, need, and actually demand. If IT knows users' pains, they can enable (and control the security and governance of) BYOE, as we've seen companies do with BYOD and cloud. For example, some companies created their own app stores where they offer users not only business-oriented apps but also include a full range of games and other entertainment apps, knowing full well that this is how people use their phones and tablets. This way, IT controls security and viruses but users can still play the Bird game of the month, shop on eBay or Amazon, and get their work done. It takes time. It takes money. But there are solutions and service providers to help.
