Testimonial: I have found that the new HDAA Knowledge Base reduces the time it takes me to research industry stats & reliable information for the ITSM sector. It’s easy to use search functionality encompassing KCS principles, helps to filter & tailor my searches more accurately & there are numerous new services now available through the website. Every time I return to the site there is new information published. Very impressive.

The Team Discuss Mobile Computing & BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) with Special Guest Jodie Rugless.

Jodie is Manager of Information Services for the City of Charles Sturt in Adelaide. Prior to this recent position she was the CIO and Acting COO for the Royal District Nursing Service (RDNS). Jodie has been featured in CIO Magazine and The Australian (amongst others) in relation to her approach to mobile computing.

Jodie and the team discuss the concerns regarding BYOD model and whether they are founded or not.

  • BYOD may not be prevalent now but it is what the future holds;
  • BYOD raises employee attraction, engagement & retention. It increases productivity & reduces operational costs. It also raises issues for the Service Desk & support;
  • Mobility should be on the CIO agenda article;
  • Karen’s artcle on BYOD & the impact on ITSM. Read it here;
  • Will BYOD reduce sick leave? Hidden benefits for the organisation but not for the individual? HR concerns need to be addressed;
  • Mobile devices reduce time lost to travel especially for Simone who lives in the middle of Sydney harbor!
  • Jodie compares the difference between RDNS & local government. The council is on the brink of being paperless by bringing council members on to iPads. There are plans to automate the parking inspectors, road fixers etc. The potential to increase community interaction through mobile devices & emerging technology is exciting;
  • Real-time information via mobile devices in the health service dramatically increases quality, productivity & the level of care;
  • The days of the CIO being able to say: "No, we can’t do this” are numbered. The CIO is responsible to the business to enable delivery of solutions;
  • Enterprise solutions not yet mobile ready such as ERP applications;
  • BYOD is not new for many industries e.g. catering, hairdressing & car maintenance;
  • National Broadband Network (NBN) will significantly change the face of BYOD & home computing. Jodie believes that most businesses have not thought about how NBN is going to impact their operation; &
  • Buying habits & decision-making approaches are changing dramatically.
