In these times of recession, many organizations and institutions are adopting the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. Lets explore its consequences.
The pros are: Students and employees who carry their own device can complete their tasks faster due to familiarity with the device. It is a cost-saving strategy for the schools or companies. They are more likely to enjoy using their device and take control of their tasks better.
The cons are: BYOD users may forget to bring their devices or the chargers. Some of them may not be able to afford these devices. Different people may use different tools and applications on their devices. Connecting such devices together may be a problem.
