2013 Mobile Prediction – BYOA (Bring Your Own App) Becomes a Major Headache for IT Departments

In 2012, we saw an exponential increase in employees at companies bringing their personal mobile devices – including smartphones and tablets – to the workplace and using them to conduct business, whether by checking work email or accessing company data. This made it difficult for companies to manage company data, most of which is private information, and keep it from getting into the hands of people who shouldn’t have access to it. This trend deemed BYOD or bring-your-own-device, has luckily been addressed and most companies have found ways to manage these personal devices used for business. Now, employees are beginning to download apps onto their devices to help increase their efficiency and productivity at work. This includes apps which lets them access work data remotely or apps that connects them with customers and co-workers. The problem with this is that, after companies have gotten over the BYOD challenge, now they have to worry about the BYOA or bring-your-own-apps hump. In 2013, I predict that companies will rush to find a way to continue managing personal devices used for business, as well as going one step further to manage the apps on employees’ devices.
