Having seen it in a number of orgs, **the consumerisation of IT is not about giving users a choice of device, it’s about locking IT out of their computer.**All those years when Admins were busy locking down SOE’s to the point of minimal use have come back and many workers today feel they are skilled enough to look after their own computer. Many of the enterprise Mac users I speak to, claim this as one of the biggest reasons they love their Mac.
This is the defintion of truth. A decade ago users were okay with offloading their technology problems on IT – now, in 2012, armed with what they’d call “knowledge”, they want no part in a relationship that involves their inability to install iTunes on their work PC.
