Consumerism Confronts IT
Few trends have been as prominent or more frequently discussed than the “consumerization” of IT. Users everywhere are virtually demanding their employers provide them with the same technologies to do their jobs that they employ in their personal lives. The challenge this provides IT administrators will intensify as the lines between the personal and the professional blur, and the norm becomes the unattached, alternative platform worker who is more difficult to control, manage, and secure.
Non-Windows laptops have perhaps become the poster children for this trend in nearly every organization. Whether sanctioned or not, they leave IT with the task of creating safe and effective policies for their use in business scenarios. Dell KACE Systems Management Appliances have helped IT administrators deploy and manage these systems from a single centralized Web-based console.
