Enhancing employee mobility can pay significant dividends for organizations and their employees. With secure access to corporate resources, employees can use mobile devices and other client systems to conduct a full range of work-related projects, whether they are away from their desks, with customers, traveling or at home.
Nevertheless, maximizing mobile efficiency and productivity can be challenging for many organizations. As organizations launch bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs, IT groups must accommodate a wide variety of devices and operating systems. At the same time, IT groups must provide the right tools to support key employee job functions and meet line-of-business (LOB) requirements. Finally, IT groups must deliver efficiency and productivity for mobile users without adding substantial IT complexity — otherwise, organizations could easily negate the benefits gained through enhanced mobile productivity.
This paper examines the challenges of supporting employee BYOD initiatives, and provides several best practices that can help your organization overcome those challenges. In addition, it highlights solutions that can facilitate implementation of best practices, helping you boost employee efficiency and productivity while also enhancing the efficiency of IT management.
