By Rich Faille\n\t\tIf you\u2019re on the path to implementing a BYOD strategy, you need to be aware of how it\u2019s going to change your environment. The impact on your organization can vary from very minor changes to your IT environment all the way to strategic changes, which could require core infrastructure upgrades. In addition, the complexity of BYOD strategies can run the gamut from minor changes and a straightforward implementation in smaller organizations that just need basic user access, to the highest levels of security\u2014for example, in government agencies. Determining and understanding the impacts of a BYOD strategy\u00a0on your infrastructure can be complex, and that\u2019s where forming the right partnership with an experienced IT provider comes in. Read on for more information about the value of working with a partner to put your BYOD policies in place.\n\t\tYou\u2019re probably aware now that to start your BYOD implementation, you\u2019ll need a mobile device management (MDM) tool. But what about other services, such as application or integration services? Sitting down with a partner, like PC Connection, to assess your environment\u00a0and really figure out what you\u2019re trying to accomplish can be invaluable.
