1 Bring Your Own Device Its all about Employee Satisfaction and Productivity, not Costs!

2 Abstract BYOD is becoming more popular globally. For instance, a survey indicated that about 28% of the global workforce in 2011 used personal devices for official purposesi. This growth of BYOD is creating doubts in the minds BYOD questions how of CIOs. Most focus on BYOD has primarily been from a cost savings IT is viewed and perspective, however, our analysis indicates there are more important implemented, and reasons for CIOs to consider. requires significant When employees use personal devices at the workplace, businesses evolution in IT clearly save on capital expenditure of hardware and software, and related IT operational expenses. But cost benefits often get eroded by further organization. investments such as virtualization or security reinforcement to support the BYOD model. With such long-term sustained investments, it appears BYOD doesnt have a significant cost advantage. The business benefits, instead, appear to lie elsewhere one of the major benefits of BYOD is employee satisfaction. In addition, it boosts employee mobility, productivity and is perceived as a strong differentiator in attracting talent. The satisfaction among end users can also be leveraged to strengthen IT departments image. Organizations need to recognize and respond to the BYOD trend quickly to leverage new opportunities presented in terms of increased employee satisfaction, mobility and productivity. However, BYOD is not a simple IT project. It questions how IT is viewed and implemented, and requires significant evolution in IT organization to promote service-oriented models. It is critical for organizations to analyze key factors related to security policies, delivery model, IT solutions and support structure in order to define a successful customized device- agnostic BYOD strategy. 2

(TCO) has shown that TCO in a BYOD arrangement is only 9.7% The driving belief behind BYOD lower than that of a standard adoption is that companies benefit model (See Figure 2)1. However, by saving capital costs as they no when additional cost heads longer have to provide employees are factored in, BYOD fails to with computing devices or demonstrate a clear cost savings related software. However, a advantage.

Moreover, full implementation has been considered under BYOD model (device virtualization), wherein employee sources as well as maintains a device and related software. 3

However centralized architecture such as server-based computing or hosted virtual desktop would require additional investment in server infrastructure. Opex Engineering: Security management costs would increase in the BYOD arrangement and desktop management (fleet deployment, replacements, outsourcing) expenses will reduce moderately or remain constant. Admin. Costs: Although IT disposal costs decreases under BYOD environment, IT training cost increases with new device management and application access processes. Opex Run: Virtualization and transformation into web based application decreases hardware and software maintenance costs under BYOD. But cost of ownership and maintenance for IT-specific software, Tier 1 IT support (password issue, application access issue) and data center storage costs would increase due to complex security deployment in the BYOD arrangement. Tier 2 and 3 IT support will come down as devices are owned by employees. Stipends under BYOD: Grants for purchase of end user device and its support based on the BYOD model and compensation policy adopted by the company. End-user Costs: End-user training decreases as employees are familiar with their devices and software as well as extra costs due to downtime of end-user IT equipments reduces. 15
