Adventures in BYOD
More than half of European and U.S. enterprises allow employees to “bring your own device” (BYOD) rather than issuing everyone the same brand of smartphone or tablet, according to a Current Analysis survey. As that amount grows, so do the challenges and opportunities for app developers.
Before BYOD, developing for BlackBerry was the surest way to target the enterprise market. Now a successful enterprise app must support Android and iOS, too. Meanwhile, different enterprises have varying policies and device-management tools for issues such as partitioning personal and business apps, and minimizing security risks.
