There's an article on Forbes exploring the impact that Google Glass may have on the business workplace. Some companies are already taking a look at what Glass and other wearables may mean to workplace security and productivity, though many are still struggling to come to terms with traditional BYOD. The article concludes with the suggestion,
“The enterprise in general and IT in particular should become early adopters of new wearable devices such as Google Glass and smart watches, and become familiar with the possible issues they present. BYOD policies, IT device management systems and employee education should be at the top of the list for enterprises as these new technologies begin to infiltrate the office. “
All true, but what are the odds? Let's break this down, starting with IT.
