    While it may take a generation or two, integration into the enterprise will ultimately become a reality for wearables. And, CIOs need to be prepared with BYOD strategies that take into account device evolutions. The goal of any strategy needs to be empowering the user to take full advantage of the device to better service the customer, while also protecting the enterprise with comprehensive security.
