BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD) and flexible working are two big shifts affecting all firms, and The INQUIRER discussed the pros and cons of both in a video panel debate earlier this month.

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 was joined by Microsoft and Intel to answer these questions and more, and that video debate is now available to watch on-demand. All you need to do is follow our pain-free registration process. µ
