The business side of BYOD 2

you are the device & privacy at Edge

About the Book

Within the first volume, published in 2014, Bring Your Own Device was a discussion of a common business concern from a cultural and organizational perspective.

Theme: current and potential business impacts of enabling smartphones, tablets, computers, and any other device that goes under the label "Internet of Things" - IoT.

Seven years later, the subtheme in that book "and any device that you do not really control” is extended to the current (and forecast) devices scenario, and integrating also Edge computing (both "dumb" and "smart") and data privacy.

Focus: knowledge- and information-management beyond your corporate boundaries.
