Windows 8 – Business, Personal or both?
Employees want a smartphone to fit personal and business needs:
There is a shift occurring in the workplace as the boundaries between professional and personal lives continue to blur. With so many smartphone choices in the market today, employees are more often preferring to use their own device at work which puts pressure on IT to support the employee’s need to stay productive no matter where they are. The challenge is to bridge the divide between what users want, while minimizing risks to the enterprise and its data.
