IBM opens up smartphones, tablet support for its workers

A great article from Computerworld includes an interview with Bill Bodin, IBM CIO Chief Technology Officer for mobility.   Specifics on how IBM is adopting a “bring your own device” strategy for smartphones and tablets and enabling 100,000 users this year to access email, contacts and calendar using Lotus Traveler.

By the end of the year, 100,000 IBM employees will be able to connect handheld devices of their choosing to IBM’s internal networks, which have recently been fortified to provide enhanced mobile security, Bodin said in an interview with Computerworld. Another 100,000 employees will be brought on board in 2012, for a total of 200,000 people, or about half of IBM’s global workforce.
