BYOD puts plant data in the palm of your hand

May 8, 2014
In this case history, Mohawk Paper implements a BYOD solution to allow employees real-time access to data.

Mohawk Paper in Cohoes, N.Y., has a history of adapting to new ideas and technologies. Mohawk was the first U.S. paper mill to match 100% of its electricity with renewable wind power and the first U.S. premium paper mill to shift toward carbon-neutral production. So BYOD is not an unexpected step for them.

Paul Stamas, vice president of information technology at Mohawk, says, "Mohawk hasn't adopted a corporate BYOD solution for general mobile computing, but we've implemented a targeted BYOD solution to monitor and control company processes and operations remotely. Our view of BYOD seeks to ensure that a specific enterprise footprint is provided on a personally owned or a company-provided device, with either limited to certain applications and data. In our case, that's manufacturing applications and data."
