    Bottom line reason...security issues. When I worked for the Navy for 10 years (5 years in DC), I had a standard no frills phone. No camera, internet or texting, I needed my phone with me incase calls came in from my ailing parents. Skiff areas require phones to be locked up prior to entering, I've seen gov't and contractors walk in areas with camera phones when camera phones were not permitted. Unfortunately buying a phone without a camera ability is slim, we'll keep owning them. No reason to have these new phones with all this crap on it, waste of time and money.

  • BYOD Revolution

    You know, this is the first time that I have looked back and realized that Obama, in his own way, really did open the door and pioneer the path for BYOD. How interesting! Thank you for such fresh perspective! When we started looking at various BYOD systems, tools and apps for the doctors in our hospital to work with, the feedback we got from them is that they really didn't like the idea of IT having access and control over their phones. 

On the other hand, they were texting patient info, which opens them up to HIPAA related compliance law suits.

We ended up solving some of the issue by using a phone app called Tigertext - which is a closed text message network in which the text messages delete themselves off of the device/phone after a set period of time. Works well and has been a big help.

Now just need something like it for email.

I think BYOD is going to have several implementation variations, depending on the size of the operation and the legal requirements. Some may use a large enterprise solution to completely access and control the device, and others may use apps and other focused and smaller solutions.

Here is another good article on this: http://byod.us/bring-your-own-device-importance-of-defining-business-objectives/
