CIO — Every six months, an employee at electrical contractor Rosendin Electric will walk into CIO Sam Lamonica's office in San Jose with a question: "How come I can't use my own phone for work?"
Rosendin Electric has thousands of employees, hundreds of smartphones, more than 400 iPads and a few Microsoft Surface tablets -- none are Bring Your Own Devices.
"We would probably never have a BYOD environment here," Lamonica says.
Lamonica isn't alone, either. There's a growing BYOD backlash among CIOs that threatens to derail the once-high-flying computing trend. For instance, CompTIA's spring survey of 400 IT and business executives found that 51 percent of respondents at large companies are not doing BYOD at all.
