Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The BYOD trend holds immense potential to transform business, enable agility and encourage innovative ways of interacting with customers and business partners. But the proliferation of myriad smart mobile devices creates complexities that are overwhelming many organizations. With limited control over and vast choice of mobility devices, today's organizations face considerable challenges in protecting data, ensuring security, providing, complying with regulations and lowering IT costs to manage a BYOD environment. The key is to formulate a strategy that approaches BYOD holistically, responding to employee expectations while at the same time fulfilling business requirements.

Transitioning to a BYOD model should be phased in over time. Organizations need to mitigate security risks, such as inappropriate usage or loss of corporate data and the ensuing financial and legal implications. Establishing effective governance mechanisms to ensure data privacy and security can be challenging when embracing a BYOD philosophy. In addition, advances in consumer technology and device heterogeneity are creating complexities that can undoubtedly turn into nightmares for IT if not handled properly.

Organizations should deconstruct traditional workspaces, using virtualization to decouple dependencies among hardware, OS, applications and user states found in traditional desktop configurations. This gives them greater flexibility to stream the right set of user profile, data and applications on-demand, at the right performance level and in a secure manner to any device, based on employee roles and IT requirements.
