Here’s an example from one of our in-house BYOD laureates: 

BYOD was stressing me out and nobody seemed to care.
All of a sudden those iPads and smartphones were coming in everywhere.
The users demanded the latest new object, security was all but forgot.
I need that key app on my gorgeous new tablet, are you going to help me or not?”

“But what if you lose it? Or say it gets stolen?” I tried to explain my dismay.
“Oh that NEVER happens, it’s just media hype!” they ignore me whatever I say.
I could try more policies. Rules. Regulations. But they’d still find a way to go round.
I needed an ally. Someone with experience of keeping devices all sound.

I looked high and low. I scoured every blog. I read page after page of the news.
I could manage devices. Or manage my PCs. But always I had to choose.
Then I spoke to a friend who had been to a conference and he mentioned PCIT.
It's Microsoft’s solution to manage all devices. It’s something you really should see!”

“You put Windows Intune on top of Config Man – it gives you just one pane of glass,
To manage all devices from tablets to PCs. It’s just in a different class.”
So now I sleep easy, my life’s bright and breezy, I’ve found the solution, you see.
I’m not a fool, I have one management tool. I love People-centric IT!
