Employees use smartphones and tablets at work
More employees using personal devices in the workplace
It has been discovered by Citrix, the virtualisation specialists, that staff at a quarter of small to medium businesses are using their own personal smartphones and tablets for work and this is without the necessary IT management infrastructure to support it.
On the other hand, the survey found that in the UK the use of such devices has boosted productivity by more than 10%.
Brett Cain, senior vice president and general manager of Citrix, has said, “Organisations need to respond to this trend by developing policies to address new mobile work styles that can drive productivity through more flexible working, while safeguarding the use of data and sensitive information”.
