Donald Clark Plan B: BYOD: 7 reasons to leave them to their own devices

Donald Clark Plan B: BYOD: 7 reasons to leave them to their own devices:

"BYOD isn’t a recommendation, it’s a realty. Everyone’s bought one and everyone uses one and everyone carries it around with them. When we organise a meeting or conference, we don’t send people an email telling them what device to bring, neither do we buy or lease a whole load of computers and hand them out. In our Universities few want to revive those expensive projects where every student was given a laptop or iPad. They bring their own.
In business, BYOD is big business. By 2014 Gartner estimate that 90% of employees will have access to enterprise software from at least two devices.  Most employees would be frustrated if their employer did not allow access from their owned devices. Note that there's a big difference between allowing devices to access your network and enterprise software and using BYOD in schools to simply access the internet."
