Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Live Chat In most discussions of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and consumerisation the experts' mistrust of users is evident. Typically, IT departments are not keen on people bringing their own devices into work with the expectation that apps, services and support will just magically work.

But some organisations have decided to trust the user and claim big savings in productivity by deploying BYOD. Is it time for the rest of us to embrace the consumerisation of IT?

Reg columnist Trevor Pott; Jim Henrys, Principal Architect, Intel Enterprise Solution Sales at Intel; and Kevin Breen, Global Service Owner for Mobile Computing, Intel IT, discuss BYOD in this Live Chat.

They talk about:

  • Trusting and educating the users.
  • Lack of application/process compatibility between devices.
  • Consumer grade vs business quality.
  • Theft of shiny objects.
  • Where consumerisation is not appropriate.
