More people using their own technology for work

BUSINESSDESK: Companies are being more flexible about allowing employees to use their own technology at work and are using social media more for communication, a new report shows.

More than a third of organisations surveyed have introduced a flexible device usage policy, the Hudson ICT Leaders Series report finds.

More than one in two chief information officers bring their own smartphones to work and 24% use their own tablets.

This has implications for asset management and security, the report says.

Fifty four percent of respondents say productivity is enhanced by the use of social media, while 57% thought innovation was improving.

Almost two-thirds of organisations use social media as a promotional tool and it is increasingly being used as an internal communications device.

Information technology divisions of companies are increasingly taking on the role of integrators of technology, Gavin Till of Christchurch City Council says.

"There might be multiple cloud solutions and part of our job will be to ensure all solutions integrate together without impacting the business," he says.
