The Benefits of IT Consumerization and BYOD for Businesses and Employees Anneke Zwart, Student (University), Netherlands, Premium Member The usage of information and communication technologies in organizations is no longer guided by the organization itself, but rather by the younger workers who are more knowledgeable about new sophisticated technologies as they have never worked without them.

The reactions of organizations towards IT Consumerization and BYOD are often more negative than positive.

As a result, the benefits of blending personal and professional uses of technologies are often not explicitly analyzed and addressed by organizational managers.
