Which mo­bile de­vices and OS should en­ter­prises choose to sup­port BYOd?


Bi­nesh Kutty: Yup! I am all for Hy­brid model. Sim­ply be­cause, one can’t re­ally have a con­trol on what de­vices the em­ploy­ees choose to buy. Also, as com­mented on the ear­lier clip for con­sumers http://on.fb.me/RTK9kZ, my tablet is on iOS and phone is an An­droid, and lap­top is on Win­dows. I would like the com­pany to sup­port all my de­vices

In such a BYOD sce­nario, the cor­po­rate have to sup­port all sorts of de­vices -- which bends to the suit­able model to be fol­lowed as hy­brid. So, I am com­pletely in agree­ment with Kishore Bhar­gava.

Cur­rently large en­ter­prises are go­ing with RIM, but apart from that most of them are mov­ing to a BYOD model. In other words, it doesn’t re­ally mat­ter be­cause they are leav­ing the choice and pur­chase of the de­vice to em­ploy­ees. So with large...
