The following is a guest post by TC2 managing director Ben Fox.

The IT industry is full of chatter on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives, much of which is focused on smartphone and tablet devices. Opinions vary widely on the pros and cons (and there are clearly pros and cons), in terms of user benefits, security issues, whether or not IT support organizations can deal with it and the capabilities of different Mobile Device Management solutions to enable BYOD.

But one of the reasons that BYOD is receiving such attention now is the concept that it can save enterprises money. Such an idea can be easily exaggerated.
