BYOD: a Bring Your Own Disaster

The unstoppable 'bring your own device' trend is coming, so companies need to stop sitting on the fence with the issue and decide on whether to allow or ban devices in the workplace.

When Gartner client computing analyst, Leslie Fiering gave a presentation on BYOD, she went as far as using a Star Trek pun to push her point on how crucial it is to act on BYOD.

“Resistance is futile,” were the words she displayed on her powerpoint, flashing a picture of ‘borg-ified’ Captain Jean-Luke Picard behind her.

Well apparently, some companies continue to resist.
