Is ‘Choose Your Own Device’ (CYOD) a good compromise for IT managers challenged by BYOD?

At a time when the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend is making headlines, bringing with it challenges and benefits in equal measure, another technology initiative is quietly occupying the middle ground. ‘Choose Your Own Device’ (CYOD) offers many of the benefits of BYOD without some of the drawbacks.
With the growth of the ‘always on, always connected’ work culture, the adoption of smartphones, tablets and notebooks that facilitate the trend is also growing. Leading market research firm, Forrester1 predicts that in two years' time, 350 million workers will use smartphones, 200 million of whom will take their own devices to the workplace. It is estimated2 that 90 percent of organisations will have to support BYOD by 2014.
