Consumerization of IT from Microsoft

of IT

Microsoft Viewpoint

Consumers today have more choice, more options, and more flexibility in the technology that they use every day—from powerful mobile devices and computers to the social networks that they use to connect with each other. As that technology spills over into their professional lives, the line between the personal and the professional is blurring.People want to use the same technology at work as they use at home. And although consumer technology offers some great potential benefits for the business, it also represents added risk in terms of security, privacy, and compliance. For IT, it’s about striking a balance between user expectations and enterprise requirements.

A Better Experience for Users and IT

At Microsoft, our goal is to help you achieve the right balance. We’re delivering a range of Windows-based devices—from smartphones to tablets to PCs—that people love to use and that are ready for the enterprise. Having more devices means increased complexity, so our focus is on minimizing that complexity. For IT, an end-to-end security and management platform can simplify how you respond to the consumerization of IT, regardless of the devices that your users bring into work. For users—whether they are working on a PC, from a tablet or phone, or through a browser—having familiar tools can help them stay productive. And for your developers, it’s all about putting user-centric experiences at the heart of application development and enabling faster development across devices.
