"Bring your own device" (BYOD) first appeared on the business scene in 2009 but only reached true traction within organizations in 2011. Simply put, BYOD, also known as "Bring your own technology" (BYOT), "Bring your own phone" (BYOP), and "Bring your own PC" (BYOPC), is when employees focus on adopting new, consumer-focused technologies and use their own devices to enhance their productivity at work. By having one device for both personal and work use, workers are consolidating their tools, but that often means they are operating outside of their organization's secure infrastructure. This has repercussions for intranets and their managers.

So who was the person doing the presentation who had been involved in this important piece of work? The CEO, COO, or receptionist? No-you guessed it--it was the intranet manager.

Outside the temperature was minus 9 degrees Celsius, but inside the headquarters of the main Swedish railway company, the room was warm and so was the welcome from other members of the J. Boye intranet experts group. This is just one of the 58 groups run by J. Boye, a small but flourishing Danish company set up 10 years ago by Janus Boye. The J. Boye groups are not the only such initiative in the intranet space. Another Danish company, IntraTeam, also offers a range of groups, and, of course, this is the foundation of the Intranet Benchmarking Forum.
