- Janco Forecasts that over 90% of all Corporations Will Allow BYOD
- 44.1% of Terminated Long Term Employees are Unemployed
Over 90% of All Corporations Allow BYOD
As the budgeting cycle begins many CIO are including BYOD implementation, training, and compliance in their budgets
Over 90% of All Corporations Allow BYOD - The reality of BYOD is that people will use their own devices because it is convenient and they do not have to jump through hoops to learn how to use them. Most organizations understand this trend and are planning to manage BYODs. This is why CIOs are including this in their 2013 budgets.
Janco believes that the focus of BYOD management in the 2013 budgeting and planning processes will be to address these three issues:
- Security and and data loss management - requirements and policies have to be aligned to the actual risks and compliance requirements in regulated environments.
- Security and management consistency across technologies - CIOs must first verify that the device or platform does in fact justify the investment to support it, and IT is not just a fad and does provide value to the end user and the company.
- Responsibilities of the end-user and user management - require users to be responsible. If they want to use their own technology, demand they be smart and responsible users. BYOD works only when it is embraced by all and they understand both the freedom it brings and the responsibility it creates. BYOD is not and should not the CIO's and IT department's problem or idea.

44.1% of Terminated Long Term Employees are Unemployed
BLS data reveals the impact of the recession on employees who have worked for a company for more than 3 year and then are terminated
Janco talked with a dozen IT Professionals who had been employed in IT for over 3 years with the same company and had been terminated. One of the common refrains was, after being out of the IT job market for several months many of these professionals felt that their skills has decayed and that that employers did not view them in a positive light because of the length of time they had been out of work. Some of these individuals were able to find “part-time” and “contractor” however they feel the job market remains tight for them. Others have left the IT arena all together and have started alternate careers.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported from January 2009 through December 2011, 6.1 million workers were displaced from jobs they had held for at least 3 years. The data shows that 26.7 of those individuals remain unemployed and another 17.4% have left the labor pool all together. That adds up to 44.1 % of these long term employees continuing to be out of work and does not include any factor for those who are underemployed.
Job opportunities for all sectors of the labor market, including IT, remain poor.
