Federal Agencies Warm to BYOD
There is a lot of buzz in federal offices about staff using their own personal devices for work. Thanks to a reversal in attitudes, new federal guidance actually encourages a policy that was once completely frowned upon - BYOD.
Obviously there are rules and guidelines in place for the growing number of government agencies catching on to the idea of BYOD- Bring Your Own Device. BYOD programs hope to reduce costs, increase program productivity and effectiveness, improve user experience, and adapt to the changing workforce. Each program will vary depending on the agency and guidelines.
Whether it is a smartphone or a tablet, increased productivity and accessibility, government case studies have shown the value of allowing workers to BYOD.
