We have been hearing it from the gurus of the profession in their presentations, and reading it for a while in the sector publications. We can say that it is a fact that the BYOD culture it is a phenomenon. The BYOD initials mean “Bring your own device”. It means that the employees can take advantage of their smartphones by using them to bring in them the information and professional tools they need to work. Thanks to the smartphones functionalities, and the impact of tablets’ introduction which its big data storage, connectivity and a practical design & structure for the professional programs, it has made possible the emerge of a new corporate culture that the experts predict will redefine the professional working methodology. Adapting the employees’ devices for a professional purpose provides great opportunities in: increasing efficiency, relaxation of workday, whole mobility to work from anywhere…. And additionally, costs savings (that is not yet quantified) that may be significant.
