“Telecommuting” in the old sense is dead. It’s no longer some weird edge case, it is how people work these days.  It’s all about Bring Your Own Device “BYOD”.  I repost a lot about this  on my LinkedIn profile, but never here yet…HMMM

The idea of all your data only accessible from your desk is gone, dead, and good riddance. You can’t manage an iPad or a Droid the way you manage an iMac or a Dell Dimension. It’s just not possible, the devices weren’t made for corporations but their success and  proliferation have made them necessary in corporate networks.

I say, give me a cloud, give me an app, give me secure corporate data access…I say goodbye Telecommuting.
