This interim version of the end user device (EUD) technical framework (phase 3) sets out the detailed concepts and good practice associated with the End User Device Strategy. Further work will identify and define the open and security standards for the full version of the framework.

This technical framework is divided into 3 parts:

Part 1

Part 1 focuses on helping organisations make the right choices when adopting new end user devices. It outlines a simple 5 step process and includes an example scorecard to guide decision making.

Part 2

Part 2 contains the detailed solution and implementation guidelines based on the elements defined in the EUD Conceptual Framework. It highlights the characteristics and pros and cons of various options as well as best practices for implementation.

Part 3

Part 3 maps the technical solutions identified in part 2 onto each of the 6 identified EUD roles. It also includes:

  • detailed user scenarios to bring each solution to life through real world examples
  • individual case studies showing how organisations have implemented solutions
