‘Bring your own device’ could spell the end for the office PC

‘Bring your own device’ could spell the end for the office PC

Do you dream of a world where you have your choice of laptop, smartphone or tablet at work; all of which connect seamlessly one to another, and are constantly updated? How many of us have daily nightmares, ‘day-mares’ maybe, all because our sub-standard office equipment?
BYOD – bring your own device, is the idea that workers bring their own laptop, smartphone, tablet or otherwise and connect to the office’s virtual network to launch their applications and workplace desktop.
According to BBC News ‘A survey covering 17 countries by business technology company Avanade found that 88% of executives said employees were using their own personal computing technologies for business purposes’. If this is happening at executive level, when will it filter through organisations to the majority of workers?

The Facts

– 64% of IT managers surveyed thought it was too risky to let personal devices be integrated into the business network.

– Another survey (Cisco) found that although 48% said their company would never authorise employees to bring their own devices, 57% agreed that some employees use personal devices without consent.

– 51% said the number of employees bringing their own devices to work is on the rise.

Foot in both camps

Cisco currently provides a BYOD policy for their employees. They have the choice of either using company-issued laptops and phones, or buying their own. If they choose to use an Apple Mac, the company won’t provide IT support. This is done instead through internal wikis and mailers where other employees offer possible solutions to their IT woes.

This seems ideal in a company full of IT experts, however how does this apply to your average small business?

Broad appeal

The trend is powered not only by the growth in mobile devices, but by cloud computing, with companies able to buy ready-to-go virtual desktops. One leading industry CEO stated “If I was a small business owner the last thing I would be doing would be buying employees phones and laptops,” he goes on to add “I wouldn’t put any servers in my office, I would put everything into the cloud, I wouldn’t implement any software on the premises.”

Bigger picture

For smaller businesses, it seems there will come a point when decisions have to be made due to the potential impacts this will have on data security and virus protection. However, it does seem that there are some potential cost savings to be made when considering the time taken for laptops, mobile phones and tablets to become effectively redundant. Conversely, if the onus is placed on the employee to keep up to date with technology, we may see some businesses lagging behind technologically in years to come.
