Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is becoming a popular term around the web these days. For starters, Aragon Research calls BYOD a phenonomenon -- users are deciding for themselves and leveraging what are the best productivity tools to be most effective.
Interestingly, I just produced an article about Microsoft Lync Online, the web conferencing and online meeting application that gives users flexibility to initiate meetings anywhere and anytime. Is the product flexible enough? In Computerworld, Julia King's article, "The Upside of Shadow IT" cites examples of empowered employees making buying decisions outside the corporate structure. More importantly, it's about IT's needs to partner with organizational teams to help make the best decisions. What I mean is, collaboration tools need to be more flexible - in the end, to satisfy specific needs of teams and functional groups.
Aragon developed the webinar, BYOD - Your Future Workplace. I first spotted the event on Twitter (where else?) through Jim Lundy, CEO and Founder of Aragon Research. To learn how will BYOD evolve and give value to an organization, register for upcoming webinars or receive notification of recorded sessions on Aragon Research. BYOD.
