It’s clear that the explosive growth of smartphones is profoundly impacting both consumption and business. For IT managers, one of the focus areas is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and the consequences of this phenomenon.
While security and network issues arise, it’s clear that BYOD will not go away anytime soon and offers many opportunities that should not be ignored. In the meantime, sales of ‘that other’ mobile device, media tablets, are boosting.
Gartner earlier this month forecasted worldwide media tablet sales to increase by 98% (!) from 2011 this year, to a total of 118.9 million units.
Is your BYOD program ready?
Although tablets are becoming increasingly popular among consumers, it’s clear that tablets are especially conquering the business user (who obviously is a consumer as well).
As a matter of fact, enterprise sales of media tablets will account for about 35 percent of total tablet sales sold in 2015 Gartner says. The company expects organizations to allow them as part of their BYOD programs.
So, are you ready? Is your BYOD program up and running?
