BYOD [Bring Your Own Device] & Data Migration
I have always used my own digital devices. That said I am a top 10% super user of computing and mobile devices. I understand iOS, Windows, Linux –Ubuntu and Mint, SCO Unix and my personal favourite Android. I first encountered the agony of data migration when mapping my original Lotus Organizer data into Outlook….circa1995. What then, is now still a complicated enterprise issue? Synchronizing of data can be a seamless exercise, depending on the components of the data and format of the files.
BYOD a 21st century phenomenon foisted upon enterprise IT & business process and depending on who you talk to , is either, a nightmare or a manner to unleash torrents of innovative productivity from employees. The number one issue that creates a nightmare is Security and the pervasiveness of company data on disparate devices. The issue is certainly valid and specific to sensitive files containing pricing, customer lists, and contracts amongst others.
BYOD productivity gains are at the thin edge of the wedge in the enterprise. Substantive effort in business process management [BPM] is necessary in order to determine real and measureable outcomes of BYOD. Yet enhanced productivity achievements are only accomplished with and when the alignment of BYOD allowance is married with 21st century best business practice such as “Interactive Visibility.” True objectives need to be ubiquitous; policies adhered to everyday for enterprise BYOD success.
