Managing applications
in the age of BYOA:
Reclaiming IT’s strategic role
All rights reserved, LogMeIn © 2014
The world transformed.
• The exponential use of personal devices for business
• Rising levels of business data rapidly flowing into the cloud
• An empowered, connected and highly-mobile workforce
• Applications brought in and managed by employees
“It's become a bit of the 'wild west'
with regards to everyone using a
different application, and
application provider.”
- IT manager, Construction, 501-1000 employees
IT stands at a crossroads.
Become a strategic partner
• Understand the scale of BYOA
• Embrace the Consumerization of Apps
• Work with business leaders to define and manage BYOA
Sit on the sidelines
• Ignore BYOA
• Assume it’s all negative
• Pretend IT is still in complete control
The survey.
For this study, we explored usage and adoption of employee-
introduced applications within companies worldwide and how
this has led to a loss of control for IT.
• November–December 2013
• Focused on IIT, OIT and non-IT professionals
• US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia & New Zealand
• 1390 total respondents
The realities of BYOA
“We don’t currently have a policy.
IT should make it a priority to sit
down with a company CEO, CFO
and IT supervisors to create a
policy.”
- IT manager, Non-profit, 11-25 employees
BYOA is here to stay.
Base = IIT only
LogMeIn App Discovery usage data1
IT underestimates the scale of BYOA by 7X.
Base = IIT only
LogMeIn App Discovery usage data1
Why IT needs to pay attention now.
Which of the following (if any) limit your company’s adoption of – or support for – employee introduced applications?
Base: IIT only
Things are only going to get worse.
How do you believe that employee use of BYO apps will change over the next five years?
Base: IIT only
BYOA is happening across all app types.
How were each of these applications brought into your company?
Base = IIT only Companies with employees using BYO application; DK answers excluded
The drivers of BYOA
“Generally, the more options that are available,
the more the employees turn to the various
options. The PROBLEM is the fragmentation.
One employee will insist on trying something
via 1 app, and another employee will use
another app entirely. It’s become a nightmare.”
- IT manager, Construction, 501-1000 employees
Employees just aren’t happy with the apps
they’ve been given.
Are the BYO apps filling a gap (i.e., there was no solution in place) or being used in addition to existing tech/apps?
Base = IIT only, Companies with employees using BYO application; DK answers excluded
Employees lead, IT follows.
How were each of these applications brought into your company?
Base = IIT only Companies with employees using BYO application; DK answers excluded
Even after adoption, IT isn’t fully in control.
Since it is now endorsed by the company, are your employees primarily using the free, paid or business versions?
Base = IIT only Companies that have adopted BYO application; DK answers excluded
Employees won’t stop bringing in new apps.
For those categories where your company has either adopted an employee-introduced app or provided
the app/solution itself, do employees continue to use their own apps in addition to the established solution?
Base = IIT Only Companies that have adopted BYO application or provided a company solution; DK answers excluded
The diminishing role of IT
“People are not consulting IT
anymore. They are just bringing in
a device and expecting us to
support it. This is something
organizations need to adapt to and
be more agile.”
- IT manager, Service industry, 2500+ employees
IT admits they’re not focused on apps.
How involved are you or others in your IT department in the selection of new cloud or SaaS apps today?
Base = IIT only
Non-IT employees are going rogue.
Base = IIT and Non-IT users sync & share only
Employees don’t feel the need to consult IT.
Base = IIT and Non-IT users sync & share only
IT isn’t even always involved with
provisioning apps.
Base = IIT pros only, DK excluded
Reclaiming IT control
“It's become a bit of the 'wild west'
with regards to everyone using a
different application, and
application provider.”
- IT manager, Construction, 501-1000 employees
BYOA helps empower today’s workforce.
Which of the following describes why employees have introduced cloud
storage/file sync and share and collaboration apps into the workplace?
Base = IIT only in companies with employees using BYO sync & share and/or collaboration apps
IT needs to focus on BYOA.
What is your current policy on the use of BYO apps for work purposes?
Base = IIT only
Strategic facilitators will be most successful.
How are you monitoring the use of BYO apps?
Reclaiming IT’s strategic role
Four ways IT pros can use the findings from this study to help
them reclaim their strategic role:
1. Understand the scale and reality of BYOA.
2. Embrace the Consumerization of Apps as a positive that will
make workers more productive.
3. Acknowledge that their peers are still figuring out the best
route to take with BYOA.
4. Seize the opportunity to define their strategic role within their
organization.
