Following on from Jason’s recent post where we explored how the explosion we are seeing in the use of consumer devices in the corporate environment, along with ubiquitous information access is changing the way that people are getting their work done. In this post, I want to continue on this journey and take a look what this means for users and the information they interact with as they get their work done.
The almost constant use of technology throughout the day, along with the (sometimes too) easy access to information is blurring traditional boundaries between work and home life. These shifting boundaries are accompanied by a belief that personal technology—selected and customized to fit user’s personalities, activities, and schedules—when extended into the workplace can result in happier and more productive users.
But there is a lot of iceberg beneath the waterline of this shift … what happens to the information if that device is lost, stolen or passed on to someone else? How does an organization ensure that sensitive information remains secure when they have no knowledge of where it is? And how can we be sure that when Demi logs on from an unknown device, that it is in fact Demi?
Let’s think about this in terms of 4 aspects: Users, Devices, Apps and Data.
