BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD) and flexible working are two big shifts affecting all firms, and The INQUIRER will be discussing the pros and cons of both in a video panel debate on 22 June at 11am.
Whether they like it or not, companies are being forced to reconsider their IT infrastructure and overall approach to working, as their staffs demand to use the devices of their choice, from their preferred location, whenever it suits them.
There's been a long battle between IT teams pushing stable and secure devices, namely the Blackberry and desktop PCs, while the rest of the company just want to get their work email and apps on their Iphone, Ipad or Android handsets.
So which side will win out in the end? What are the benefits of taking a more flexible approach to BYOD and remote working? And what about the potential pitfalls?
The INQUIRER will be joined by Microsoft to answer these questions and more in our live online debate at 11am on 22 June, and we'd love to hear your views on whether it should be Blackberry or Iphone all the way for business. All you need to do now is follow our pain-free registration process, and we'll look forward to answering your questions on the day. µ
