For those that could not attend my BYOC session at Synergy you can see my presentation in its entirety on Citrix TV by following the link below:

There has been a lot of talk, articles, case studies, blogs and opinions around Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) programs.  Next week during Synergy, I will present how Citrix implemented our BYOC program and my thoughts on how other companies leveraging our technology can do the same.   

 The session is SYN302: CIO Insights – How to implement a Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) program.  The session is Thursday at 5:00pm in the Moscone West Convention Center, Room: 2016 – 2018.

If you are interested in understanding the step by step process we went through to implement this program I would encourage you to attend this session.  I will walk us through our motivation and the benefits we have realized during the last 18 months.  There seems to be a lot of very strong opinions about BYOC programs and some misconceptions too.  The focus of this session is to talk through how we did it and address some of the concerns people have raised in the past.  I think you will be surprised at some of the internal conversations that took place while we were formulating our program.  Can you guess who was the most concerned, IT Security, Legal, H.R.?  I’ll share with you our thought process and internal conversations as well as how we brought this program to life in three months. 

BYOC may not be for everyone, but I think this session will help you understand how and why Citrix did it and then you can decide for yourself. 

Hope to see you next week at my session.
