Dealing with Devices
As people move out to the new building, if they have a desktop, it will be swapped out for a laptop. “Once we get completely moved, there’s going to be at least 1,200 people, which means there’s going to be at least 1,200 laptops,” said Henderson.
What about other devices? “Our BYOD policy today is that we will onboard to our corporate wireless on any iOS device that is purchased through the company and managed. Today we have about 700 iPads, with many in the pilot phase right now. We have approximately 800 managed devices, so we will synchronize email calendaring and contacts to any colleague-owned iOS device and will manage it through an MDM solution. We’ve had that for quite a while. There are also a handful of BlackBerrys,” according to Henderson.
