Published: 06 December 2013

Analyst(s): Nick Jones


Of the CIOs we surveyed in 2012, 38% hoped to move to a BYOD-only model by 2016. However, employees are less positive about the benefits; a significant minority will reject it, and all have concerns about many issues. Large-scale BYO programs must focus on education, support and risk reduction.
