IDC PlanScape: Creating an Intentional Enterprise Mobile Device Implementation Strategy

This IDC study enables the CIO — in concert with line-of-business executives, senior executives, human resources (HR) management, the CFO, and legal management — to create a framework to better determine how best to use, deploy, manage, and distribute mobile devices across the organization.

This framework includes the following components:Device selection and portfolio, including the relationship between IT and telecomDevice distributionDevice and service paymentDevice management and security"The BYOD phenomenon has introduced mobile technology benefits widely at many organizations, but not always in a sustainable, maximally effective way," says Galen Gruman, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Program (IEP).
