The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement is gaining strength all over the world. Companies are encouraging employees to bring their own device into the workplace by adopting new BYOD and Security policies. Allowing employees to use their personal devices like phones, laptops and smart watches for work has both rewards and risks. MagicStick™ has launched their first model called One which is a powerful device that can change the way BYOD works in different sectors of business. It is quite extraordinary, considering the size (MagicStick™ One is smaller than a Smart phone and can slip in your pocket like a pack of gum) how much these cute looking, small devices are capable of, especially in the Bring your own Device section.
As for BYOD, statistics remain in favor of implementing it at workplace, as the new standard in industry. Studies have indicated that with BYOD, productivity, employee morale and accountability improve in tandem with reduced hardware and networking costs. But some other plausible reasons also come into consideration making a valid argument in favor of BYOD for workplace. As per Gartner, more than 50% of workplaces will require employees to bring their own devices by 2017. By the year 2017, BYOD will grow from a $67 billion market to a $181 billion market. Also it must be noted that North America has the highest BYOD adoption rates at 36%, a number that will increase to about 50% of the market by the end of 2017. More than 67% of workers use their own devices at work. All these trends clearly indicate the use of personally owned devices in the workplace as a significant trend that transcends the boundaries between the public and private enterprise sectors.
