The desire for freedom that the next generation of workers brings to the workplace could widen the Business - IT gap. But could software developers solve this problem?
The latest study from TrackVia, The next generation worker: The Citizen Developer, provides insight into a population that is shaping work today. This transformational shift isn't coming soon. It's already here. If your business is still planning for 9-5 workdays and enterprise applications that take months of training to understand, you are already behind the curve.
Your employees are bringing their mobile devices to work. The BYOD cat has jumped out of the proverbial bag. Lisa K. Moore, Online Marketing Manager at TrackVia, recommended "opening dialogue between Millennials and IT professionals" in her recent article. This brings business users in sync with technology integration while giving them freedom to choose the apps that work best for them.
Bringing your own users into the development process will heighten understanding of the challenges involved in app development. When it comes to security in particular, users can be unaware of the serious issues arising from their use of certain consumer apps in work spaces. By working together security risks can be lessened and partnerships can grow strong.
