If you were just getting comfortable with BYOD, brace yourself for new twists and turns. CIOs can expect more devices to enter the enterprise in consumer clothing, real security threats to emerge, new MDM options and much more in 2014.
Remember when your company reimbursed you for home Internet? Those were the good old days. Signs already point to BYOD going the same route, especially in areas where jobs are sparse and companies aren't under pressure to provide perks. In 2014, we might be saying goodbye to device reimbursement and monthly stipends for mobile service. Caveat: If more PCs and tablets fall under a BYOD program, however, we might see stipends increase to cover them, says Forrester's David Johnson.
