Topic: BYOD (“Bring your own Device”) Revisited
Almost exactly one year ago, our May meeting was around mobility solutions — iPhones, iPads, Blackberry devices, etc. and the corporate approach to BYOD. We had a joint presentation by Tom Cipolla and Sherrie Durasoff of TIAA-CREF which received tremendous feedback and interest in discussing again. With that in mind, we’re bringing Tom back as well as adding two new panelists for a conversation around what they’re doing and/or considering in their environments.
We encourage all helpdesk, technical support, vendor, and customer service professionals to join us for lunch and discussion.
