Keeping BYOD in Check: How to Enforce BYOD Policy

BYOD Policy

Blog-post by,

When it comes to bring your own device (BYOD) policies, the promised benefits tend to outweigh some of the drawbacks. For many businesses, having a more productive workforce with the ability to respond to challenges and collaborate effectively are advantages worth having. But simply having a BYOD policy isn’t enough; pretty much any organization can figure out a good BYOD policy with enough research and planning. The trick isn’t implementing the policy--it’s enforcing it, and enforcement can become a real problem.

Unless an app is connected to relevant and continuously expanding data sources, it is half-baked, with no substance. It’s like a Formula One racecar without any fuel, or spaghetti without meatballs. Like yin without any yang. Line of business and IT professionals alike have come to understand how much data matters. It’s what sets a business apart, defines and differentiates their offering. So, having fast and easy access to data ─ whether it’s connectivity to a CRM database or access to other systems of record ─ is essential to driving larger business objectives.

Mastering Data Management

MDM, SOA, ESB, and Other Three Letter Words

Blog-post by,

I met with a client last week that was trying to determine what and how to deal with one of the most common and complex problems that organizations both small and large have to deal with – data management.  This oil and gas company had data coming out of its ears – production data, seismic data, HSE data, down-hole sensor data, well log data, financial data… you get the picture.  Each department was its own silo; a vast, sprawling archipelago of data islands completely disconnected from each other.

Our Twitter #CIOchat this week tackled wearable devices: fashion versus function? The consensus was it depends on the market, but that fashion is very important in most cases.

It almost goes without saying that there is a lot of concern when it comes to internet security these days. We’re heading online more and more often while also putting more sensitive information about ourselves on the internet. It’s increasingly common for businesses to interact with customers online, and considering the headlines revolving around security breaches and privacy leaks, many of the security worries seem justified.

Many CIOs today can’t keep pace with the communications needs of the enterprise. The volume of information and devices that need to be managed is growing and the costs can be unpredictable.
