BYOT is like a Subway Sandwich Shop

Bring-Your-Own-Technology (BYOT) will save the enterprise money right away, how, the initial cost of the device goes to the employee they buy the smart device they will eliminating the company from the cost of purchasing it, in turn eliminating the asset tagging process and the cost related to non work usage. Each month the employee provides an expense report with usage related to work. Which the company reviews, and provides the reimbursement  

It seems pointless to resist the inevitability of the consumerization of IT. Today’s employee is an experienced computer user who wants freedom and access to applications necessary to complete their jobs, whether or not they are standardized by IT. What needs to happen is a balance between user freedom and IT control – users don’t want to be dictated to by their IT department. A self-service model, like a Subway sandwich shop, for example, the key to strike that balance

What I mean is that while the choices for breads, meats, condiments, etc. are numerous, they are not unlimited. Every user’s needs are different, so IT needs to be able to offer a variety of standardized services and allow employees to pick and choose what fits their workstyle – which sets boundaries while maintaining security

No matter how IT people feel about having to deal with the whole bring-your-own-technology (BYOT) to work phenomenon, the reality is that they are going to have to deal with it as part of the whole trend towards the consumerization of IT.”
