Intel’s Employees Achieve 2.75M Hour Productivity Gain in 2012

Intel has become a case study for the benefits of the consumerization of information technology. According to Intel IT's first mid-year performance report, approximately 19,000 employees are participating in the company's bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program, improving productivity for each employee by an average of 57 minutes-per-day due to increased access to corporate and personal applications. The report also discusses how Intel's private "cloud" has helped save the company $3 million in 2012, while 4,500 employees embraced Intel IT's social computing initiatives by participating in a crowdsource forum on new business opportunities that generated more than 250 ideas.
