One of the more popular topics of discussion in Information Technology this year has been Mobility.  The economy has forced companies to cut costs, and corporate decision makers now have an even larger focus on finding ways to improve the efficiency of their employees.  Everyone wants to do more with less.  This is manifesting itself in corporate environments as a trend of employees bringing their own device(s) to the office with the intent of using them for business purposes.  While this does allow for companies to save on equipment costs and, possibly, recurring mobile plan expenses, it could introduce some very significant costs to the IT infrastructure.  We discuss some of those costs and where they will appear in the business in a blog we shared with ShoreTel’s partner community at their 2012 Champion Partner Conference.
