The fundamental tenets of employment – and the business world in general – haven’t changed: employees want to be productive and do the best job they can. What has changed is the way today’s professionals work – they’re at the office, they’re on the road, and they’re at home.

The acronyms BYOD and CoIT are being discussed around a lot these days, but this is no passing trend. This is the new work standard, what we call the dynamic workplace – and it could be physical, mobile, or virtual.

However, many companies are still overwhelmed by the tablets and smartphones proliferating their offices and it‘s with those folks in mind that I submit the following five tips for integrating BYOD into overall IT service management.
