The ability to take an office mobile is growing everyday. As unified communication and VoIP services increase in the business landscape and more employees are participating in bring-your-own-device (BYOD) options, the ability to work from anywhere is appealing. However, there are some common mistakes that businesses are making that hamper effective business strategies.
CIO Magazine recently compiled a list of the top mistakes many IT departments are making, representing an unfocused approach to BYOD. According to the piece – which was written by the staff of InfoWorld – many companies use BYOD as a way to save money on supporting devices directly or as a gesture of trust for employees, both of which are considered to be misguided ideas.
Any device brought into the enterprise needs some degree of IT support and even tech confident workers don’t always know the full extent of BYOD responsibilities. New mobile solutions are arriving in the business world with enough frequency that a number of IT challenges including security and management tools can be dealt with. However, these measures are not always implemented due to unawareness.
The BYOD trend also brings about cloud computing, in which a number of mistakes are committed as well. According to the article, integration issues and security concerns have been major snafus for companies that have jumped in blindly, instead of taking the time to research the cloud option.
Enterprises can avoid these pitfalls by being smart about implementing new technologies. Partnering with an IT management firm like CTI Technology can allow a business to investigate any potential system bugs before deploying a costly upgrade, and keep them up-to-date on the latest features and benefits of new innovations.
