SOTI and LML Technologie have teamed up to bring you an interesting presentation on the evolution of BYOD from 1.0 to BYOD 2.0. The presentation is chock-full of information on BYOD adoption, trends, associated risks and the perception of BYOD from both the employee and employer.
They refer to BYOD 2.0 as the move away from a device centric approach to management forcing mutual sacrifices to be made by employers and employees towards a new app centric management focus. They quote Forbes as coining BYOD 2.0 as “The move away from either business or employee-owned centricity, and towards the intersection of the two.” With this new 2.0 approach SOTI and LML seem to be predicting a large surge in BYOD adoption. The presentation states that by 2016, organizations will spend over $300/employee/year on security, management and support of applications and devices. By 2017 they state that half of employers with actually require employees to supply their own devices.
