You'll probably get different answers depending on which CIO you ask, but an Aberdeen Group study from last year concludes that an enterprise "with 1,000 mobile devices spends an extra $170,000 per year, on average, when they use a BYOD approach," according to CIO.com.

 

Among the extra costs cited are:

 

1. Higher monthly wireless costs because with BYOD, enterprises can't leverage bulk service rates.

2. Processing employee expense reports.

3. Increased help desk costs.
