How to assist my staff wanting to bring their own devices to work?

This is a post I did in December...

BYOD was a long time coming.

Microsoft had Windows NT and Windows 95, one business and one
consumer. It took them a long time to realise that people want to use the same
thing at work that they use at home.

So the BYOD really has been growing under the radar for some 15
years now… IT just didn’t realise it. It is how the Apple iPhone is making
itself a dominant force in the business world, without actually approaching the
business world. Win the hearts and minds of actual consumers, and they will
rise up against the corporate dictatorships eventually… and surprise, we now
have the BYOD revolution.

I think that BYOD won’t succeed in the end. Not that BYOD won’t
changing things dramatically, but big business can’t afford the risks that come
with BYOD. A few massive breaches attributed to BYOD and it will be put back in
the box to a certain degree.

I don’t mean this will kill BYOD, but what I am thinking is a
future with smarter devices – not smart phones, but genius phones (can I
trademark this term!?), where there is some sort of virtualisation/personalities
on phones that control information flow, enhance security, etc…

Businesses will be able to insist on a range of advanced devices
in which they will be able to control ‘part’ on the device relating to
business. Imagine a device with 2 phone numbers… two email accounts, two
evernote/dropbox/sugersysnc/twitter/etc etc etc.

You load a policy and give the business control of your ‘business’
personality – with being able to manage/wipe/etc remotely – but just the
business part. Imagine losing your advanced device, you report it to the
company, they send out a signal and the business personality is gone… or they
fire you and do the same.

I imagine a phone where a new employee starts, is issued a
business ‘number’ that you load onto your advanced device and can begin
receiving calls, emails, etc.

It will be a single device, but will support the BYOD philosophy,
save businesses money on hardware, and make the users comfortable with the
emotional attachment they have to their devices.

If Apple or Google made this happen, or collaborated on some
standards, there would be a massive revolution in the BYOD space.

Imagine if tablets, laptops, etc could do the same?

I’m getting myself excited just dreaming about it.

Customer Acquisition

How to generate more business for your web development agency?

All businesses are the same.



We use the KPI model (www.keypersonofinfluence.com.au)



- Pitch - How to tell people what you do



- Publish - Get your material out there



- Profile - If Google doesn't know you, you don't exist



- Products - Define what you actually do



- Partnerships - You can't do it all yourself



 



Every business needs these if they want to succeed.... as well as a lot more.... business doesn't just happen, you have to make it happen.... but the old days of marketing and sales are dying... and the new entrepreneur revolution is taking shape.

Have you successfully ranked on Google Page 1 with .co domain?

The only domains I HATE with a passion are fake 2LD's.



Someone has got au.com for example and sells domains like 'blah.au.com'



They are just so dodgy!



My personal favourite at the moment is .me   with my personal email being skeeve@skeeve.me  - feels personal.

While it may be wise to secure your .co domain, especially since it protects partially against typo squatters, I don't think there is any value in actually using a .co as your primary domain.



I think using it as a primary domain (advertised) would only confuse people trying to visit your site who would naturally put .com in... this is not a wise move.

How do you decide who to follow on social media?

I can't even figure out HOW to upload a photo... tried multiple browsers but it just goes to a dead page.
