Adoption of ‘Bring Your Own Device’ policies has stalled, as ‘Choose Your Own Device’ grows in the industry, IDC has said.

Speaking at Microsoft’s Business Transformed event, John Delaney, head of IDC’s European mobility team, stated: “BYOD has taken off to quite some extent in the US, and for a while it looked as though it was going to take off in Europe as well.

IDC’s bi-annual survey of the enterprise sector found that in the first half of 2014, a third (36 per cent) of businesses currently offer a BYOD policy, with a further quarter (23 per cent) planning to begin offering a policy in the next 18 months.
