Don't Be Complacent About Benefits of Social Media and BYOD in Workplace, UK Businesses Warned

A think tank report warns IT managers and CIOs about complacency with new IT practices like BYOD, or "bring your own device", mobile IT and social media.

The report by AIIM, the global community of information professionals, says that organisations taking a wait-and-see approach to new IT practices will miss out on the productivity, efficiency and cost saving benefits that these new areas can offer.
AIIM UK says that businesses failing to try and implement new IT areas like BYOD or social media could experience long-term consequences.

"Many firms are either taking a wait-and-see approach to these technologies or are dismissing them entirely," said Andrew Graham, director at AIIM UK. "The report suggests that such caution or ambivalence could set many organisations back in terms of competitiveness and, ultimately, have a knock-on effect on the UK economy."

The report reveals that organisations most likely to reap the benefits of new IT trends are those that acknowledge consumerisation of IT as more than a technology shift and listen to their employees.
