BYOD is here to stay
BYOD trend has already started and is happening. As the stats shown in this article, BYOD is here to stay. The appeal of BYOD is the increase in productivity and ease of use that end-users enjoy. I understand the risk and reservation from IT and that is exactly why an enterprise grade solution with same ease of use and productivity enhancement is important.

BYOD Challenges
I can understand the IT people that are against BYOD. However, I don't think they can do anything to stop it. It's already happening, whether officially sanctioned or not. So the question becomes - how to deal with it?

Does BYOD come with headaches? Of course it does. However, security issues and IT management headaches (how do I support all those devices?) can be addressed by using new HTML5 technologies that enable users to connect to applications and systems without requiring IT staff to install anything on user devices.

Re: BYOD Backlash
The appeal of BYOD baffles me. Companies face management problems, and employees have to pay for their own devices out of their own pockets. How does ANYBODY win in this scenario?

That said: I have a personal iPhone and iPad and use both for work. So it goes.

BYOD challenges
BYOD creates so many challenges on multiple fronts. On the technical side, security controls get complicated due to all the different mobile platforms. On the legal side, issues of personal vs. corporate data and corporate control over personal devices are just starting to play out, making it tough to devise corporate policies.

Re: BYOD Backlash
A nightmare might be an understatement, Alison! I think part of the difficulty is that it's not purely a technical issue or a problem that can be totally resolved by a technology solution, even one as simple as keeping separate smartphones for work and office use. As mobile technology continues to blur the lines between work and personal, it's going to be harder not easier to sort out.

BYOD Backlash
I spoke to many CIOs last week -- and to a person, they all agreed that BYOD is a time-consuming nightmare. While employees and c-levels want this policy, CIOs themselves often continue to carry around two phones because they get the legal ramifications facing users who blur the lines between 'what's mine' and 'what's the company's' data. I foresee lots of work for attorneys as more employees face wiped and destroyed mobile devices.
