Video interview: Kim Stevenson, CIO Intel on BYOD

I recently spoke to Kim Stevenson, CIO at Intel. When she started in IT, people used to try to issue one device per employee. She says Intel has been running BYOD for three years. “People like choice and they pick devices for the work they wish to accomplish.” At Intel, this means becoming a more productive employee. So as an IT professional, she says it is important to understand this driver, rather than try to resist the change and loss of control that occurs through BYOD.

She says: “We are in an era of business  productivity. It is perfectly reasonable for employees to have seven devices. Through our BYOD programme we have documented a gain of 57 minutes in productivity per employee.”

For IT professionals, she says the Number One issue they face is “velocity.” Business unit managers can buy a service directly from a service provider. the consumer It experience is better than enterprise IT. She says IT must address how to deliver  the consumer IT experience within the confines of the enterprise.
