The Problem with BYOD Stipends and What's Next for BYOD Costs

15 August, 2014 - 12:00

Companies have plenty of reasons to make bring your own device (BYOD) policies a part of their businesses. One of the main attractions, and a primary reason for adopting BYOD in the first place, is how using a personal device makes employees more productive both in the workplace and at home. Another consequence of using BYOD is that employees are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs. But with these benefits also comes the concern over BYOD cost. BYOD’s most vocal proponents say the policy ends up saving businesses money in the long run, but its critics maintain that bring your own device is ultimately costly. One of the main points of contention is companies’ use of stipends as a way to offset the costs of a BYOD program for employees. While BYOD is likely here to stay, it’s very possible stipends on the way out.

The Future of Cloud Computing

13 August, 2014 - 10:16

Cloud computing, on a personal or business level, hasn’t been around for long. 2010 and 2011 were banner years for the implementation of cloud. There was some movement in the industry before that, but 2010 and especially 2011 were when things really started to take off.

With the capabilities provided by the internet combined with the technology device revolution, the need for and want of cloud computing came to fruition. For big data especially, cloud computing has been extremely important in making big data a household name. Whether it’s been through IBM, Google, or Amazon Elastic MapReduce, the word on big data has gotten out.

Before big data in the cloud, it was difficult for most companies to afford any type of big data implementation because of sky-high startup and maintenance costs. By combining cloud and big data, companies pay significantly reduced startup costs and basically eliminate maintenance costs.

Cloud computing has totally revolutionized the big data world. So, what further changes can we expect in the future? Here are six.

12 August, 2014 - 13:33

If there’s one thing we as marketers have to admit we’re guilty of at times, it’s the use of buzzwords. Especially in the CMS world, acronyms (WCM, CXM, DXM) abound, and the latest terminology can feel like nothing more than the current fad. It’s true, the industry has a terminology overload, but it’s for this reason especially that, when they come around, game-changing concepts need to be explored and identified.

How MDM Can Address BYOD Security for the Enterpirse

17 July, 2014 - 10:00

Who doesn’t like the idea of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) for business? Having employees use their own personal devices for work sounds like a great idea. For one thing, they’ll be more productive as they are already familiar with their devices. They’ll also be more satisfied with their work since they won’t have to struggle with learning how to operate a new smartphone or tablet. Plus, companies can save on costs since they won’t need to buy devices for their employees. So what’s the downside? For many business leaders, the chief concern no matter the BYOD policies enacted is that of security. With employees using their own devices, that opens up more avenues for vital company data to be compromised. That’s why so many businesses now are turning to mobile device management (MDM) systems as a way to address these pressing security issues.
