IDC PeerScape: Device Strategies Practices for Deploying Mobile Devices with Open Arms

This IDC study enables CIOs, and their reports charged with deploying user-facing technology, to deploy (or perhaps redeploy) mobile devices with a focus to enabling greater user productivity, not simply addressing risk across the broad workforce."Safely deploying mobile devices is only as hard as you want to make it," says Galen Gruman, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Program (IEP). "Today's devices support the security capabilities you'll want, and both management and security tools are mature, so IT's focus should not be based on fear but on the best way to onboard them in your organization as an enabling technology for greater user productivity."
