When Google first announced Google Glass, one thing was clear: The search giant designed it with consumers in mind. After all, Google showed it capturing photos, recording videos and doing all kinds of personal, leisure-time activities that would not interest the corporate world. At no point has Google said that it thinks Google Glass would be a solid product for enterprise customers, and it's hard to fathom any IT decision-makers believing that it would be. Yet recently, there has been an uptick in comments in the media that Google Glass might actually be useful in enterprises. Those folks point to its support for Maps, its ability to be integrated with mobile devices and its many other Web-connected functions to prove their point. To those people, Google Glass could be the next bring-your-own-device (BYOD) sensation, a product that would ultimately find its way into the corporate world and take hold. But these claims look rather weak. There are a lot of reasons why Google Glass wouldn't be a good fit in the corporate world, not the least of which would be the security concerns. Even Google hasn't been able to make a compelling argument favoring Glass as a business tool. Google Glass is a consumer product. No more, no less. Here are the reasons why.
