We will look back on 2014 as the tipping point for BYOD (Bring your own device). Both employees and business leaders now see its value, with almost half of companies having a BYOD policy in place, and 36% developing one. BYOD isn’t just about allowing employees to use the latest smart device, productivity is one of the main drivers. According to Ovum, over 50% of employees think that they would be better able to do their jobs if they could access business applications and emails outside of official working hours. The same research also found that almost 57% of full-time employees access corporate data from a personally owned smartphone or tablet.
