BYOD. If that acronym doesnt strike fear into the heart of every chief exec or finance director, it should. Short for Bring Your Own Device, theres been a proliferation of new technology thats take the business world by storm; the tablet. More portable than a laptop, more connected than a mobile phone, these cross-over devices are incredibly popular, and rightly so. The flexibility they provide is truly amazing. Give a presentation, take photographs, jot down notes on the move, browse the internet, use business email and make calls, all from one easily transported device.
