I really like the way this question is framed because it implies that BYOD, Shadow IT or whatever you want to call it is everyone's opportunity - and problem. Education will smooth the way torward a coherent policy and manageable execution of BYOD, BYO Cloud etc. It can't be done with IT acting like the enforcer like in the old days (last year-:). It's all about educating users how Shadow IT can harm the enterprise if security aspects are not factored into every BYO implementation.
Good job in leveraging cloud capabilities to provide a competitive differentiation - Six months of testing reduced to five days, effectively reducing time to market. With chip industry being driven by Moore's law - computational power doubles in 18 months, this private cloud is delivering scalable, on demand computating capability, which helps IT be a true business partner.
DISH is transforming itself from an entertainment (satellite TV) provider to a media consumption leader, wtih touchpoints such as laptops, mobile (tablets, smartphones). The on-demand consumption (24X7) demands a good back-end with reliable data as well as predictive abilities (People also watch, people also buy).

Many enterprises are looking to Managed Print Services (MPS) to help them better manage complex print environments. While MPS engagements help businesses optimize their infrastructure, manage their IT environment and improve overall workflow, the benefits of incorporating MPS into your enterprise extend beyond technology. MPS can help your organization reduce costs - both financial and environmental - lower the burden on IT staff and improve employee productivity.
Introducing and implementing an enterprise BYOD policy requires a thorough examination of several different factors, from allowed devices to supported user conveniences. Even with more mobile devices in the workplace, printed materials are still used across the enterprise, with an increasing number of these pages originating from mobile devices. According to IDC*, the “total U.S.
Take a look at about any office and there’s no question that that the number of mobile devices and cloud services used by employees have multiplied in recent years. The rapid expansion in the use of mobile devices is both a productivity boon and a complexity challenge --- especially when some products or services don’t work well with others.
