Ted Bissell, mobile specialist at PA Consulting Group, is quoted in the Financial Times The Connected Business special report. The article looks at why strict rules on mobile devices could backfire and Ted gives his view whether IT departments should be accommodating requests from employees as well as senior members of staff to use their mobile device of choice to access corporate information.
Ted says that IT departments should view requests from senior executives as an opportunity to kick-start a debate about device choice across the organisation: “This is the IT department’s chance to shine.
“They’ve been handed the gift of a senior leader with a new vocabulary and awareness of what today’s technology is capable of delivering.
“The IT department needs to make the most of that opportunity, because it is a great chance to sell its overall mobile-device vision to the chief executive in a more palatable, meaningful way.”
