Repost: Bring Your Own Software (BYOS), Not BYOD, Is Real Challenge (with comments)


An interesting article on new concerns for the CIO--it's not only Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), but BYOS (Bring Your Own Software) that enterprises must now address.  Think of the device as a Trojan horse--since once a user brings it inside, it carries not only authorized, but unauthorized access to the network.  On the other hand, it does allow a certain level of independence, and innovation, in bringing new technologies and applications into play that may not have had the visibility in the past.

Wonderware's SmartGlance offers smart device-enabled reporting (the BYOD aspect) with rich, intuitive, on-demand information management (the BYOS aspect).  It allows users to view real-time data on a tablet or smart phone, to make decisions based on current process status and conditions.  SmartGlance brings the best of BYOD and BYOS to users.
