People-Centric IT for Real Business Results - Adapting to a Shift in Power
It's time to take a new approach to IT. By focusing on the individual instead of the device, businesses are cutting costs and increasing productivity. We live in a world of ever-increasing employee expectations, which is fuelling new IT strategies such as cloud and BYOT. We need to manage the only non-standard element of the IT environment - the person - in a way that minimises IT management overhead and maximises productivity, while still maintaining full control. Interested? You are only human.
The acceleration in the adoption of consumer technologies in the corporate world is continuing to create significant problems for CIOs. The cross-over of personal devices is now endemic, if you travel on an airplane, train, or subway the number of people using personal devices (Smartphone's and tablets are currently the dominant devices) to access corporate systems is astonishing, particularly compared to what it was like less than two years ago. Therefore, management and control of corporate assets - data and information - is critical, but not at the cost of innovation and freedom, this dichotomy can only be solved if we now take a people-centric view of how corporate systems are accessed.
