Enterprises Continue to Embrace BYOD, Expanding Across Industries and the Globe in 2012

Good Technology's second annual report reveals how enterprises continue to cut costs and increase efficiency through BYOD programs

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure enterprise mobility, today released the results of its second annual bring-your-own-device (BYOD) customer survey. Good's BYOD report shows how 100 of its customers across various industries around the globe are supporting BYOD. The full report can be found here.

"This year's report shows that BYOD continues to gain traction and those who have no plans to support BYOD are a small and rapidly shrinking minority of our customer base," said John Herrema, SVP Corporate Strategy at Good Technology. "This is no surprise to us since we hear every day from our customers how embracing BYOD has made their enterprises more productive, collaborative, and competitive than they ever were before.  We're also seeing that BYOD is going global and that even our largest, most security conscious and highly regulated customers can safely embrace BYOD if they have the policies and supporting solutions in place to protect their business data and applications."

Similar to Good 's first BYOD report, this year's survey demonstrates how the "consumerization of IT"  is forcing enterprise IT departments to develop policies for regulating the use of and ensuring the security of company information being accessed  by employees' personal devices.  More notably, this year's report reveals that an increasing number of companies around the globe are freely embracing BYOD to help reduce costs and increase employee productivity by allowing employees to use the devices they prefer and take advantage of mobile applications they know in order to work smarter.

"It is clear that companies are supporting BYOD in large numbers as it gives employees the choice to use the devices that make them most productive," said Chris Hazelton, Research Director for Mobile and Wireless at 451 Research. "While there is a lot of focus on supporting and controlling the device, the next challenge for IT will be provisioning and securing large volumes of enterprise apps and data in BYOD deployments."

Key findings in Good's 2012 BYOD report include:

  • More Enterprises are Embracing BYOD:  The percentage of enterprises formally supporting BYOD increased from 72 to 76 percent. More notably, those companies with no plans to support BYOD dropped from 9 to 5 percent.
  • BYOD Expands Global Reach: Companies are moving out of a U.S-only support model to extend their BYOD practices to more countries around the globe, and in multiple countries at once.
  • Larger Enterprises are the Most Active in BYOD:  75 percent of those supporting BYOD have 2,000 (or more) employees and 46 percent have 10,000 (or more) employees.
  • BYOD is NOT Hindered by Regulatory Compliance or Security Concerns: The Financial Services/Insurance and Healthcare industries continue to be among the most active industries supporting BYOD.   This year's report also shows an increase in Government adoption of BYOD programs.
  • Employees Are Still Willing to Pay for Personal Choice: 50 percent of companies supporting BYOD require that all costs be covered by employees who are more than willing to take their employers up on the offer!

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data. This approach, commonly referred to as the "Internet of Things" (IoT), enables businesses to use real-time data from all sorts of things including machines, devices and sensors to make better decisions, improve customer service, and lower the risk in the creation of new revenue opportunities. In his General Session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, discuss the real benefits to focus on, how to understand the requirements of a successful solution, the flow of ...

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
