Best practices for a productive BYOD program. Over the past few years, the term “BYOD” has become a popular term in the workplace as mobile devices in the enterprise have become common for many organizations. However, aside from being trending term, its meaning is more than just an acronym. BYOD is one part of a much larger, deeper-rooted trend: The consumerization of IT, which can be traced back to the early 2000s. Around that time, most everyone had a personal computer, which enabled them to work from home after hours – and to realize the benefits of using the devices that they had carefully chosen and were comfortable using, rather than the corporate devices their IT departments had issued them.
