BYO Corporate Computing

According to media reports, Queensland insurance company Suncorp have adopted a "BYO Device" policy ( Suncorp allows staff to BYO computers, F. Foo, The Australian, March 29, 2011 12:00AM). Staff are now allowed to bring their own computer or smart phone to work to use. The news item says that applications are being virtualised to run on these devices, but I suspect they are actually developing web based applications, so just a browser is needed. The rate at which the remaining corporate desktop computers are replaced can then also be reduced.
