Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC)
Bring your own cloud (BYOC) is a concept in which employees can use third-party cloud services needed to perform specific tasks. The concept involves combining enterprise and consumer software - both in the cloud and on the premises - to get the job done. You can pick cloud services that you find appealing and use them to manage and work with corporate data. However, as private and critical business data is stored in the cloud, BYOC requires a different and effective approach to risk management and find new ways of controlling data. There is also the issue of protection of intellectual property and compliance with legislation. Yet, when used in the right manner BYOC can help boost productivity boost and offer collaborative benefits.
