Consumer technology is playing an increasingly important role in business and enterprise IT - people expect to be able to use the same technology at work that they use at home. Rather than being overwhelmed (or even afraid!) enterprise IT can achieve a number of benefits from the consumerization of IT trend as long as we take the right approach.

In this session, come and hear about how Microsoft IT is approaching the Consumerization trend, and hear real-life “Tales from the Trenches” about how we’re working to strike the right balance between enterprise requirements for security, privacy, control, and compliance, and creating a great experience for our users and customers who want to stay connected and productive no matter where they are or what device they’re using.
