Tablets a Top Trend, But Management and Security Are Key Concerns
Businesses are refocusing their mobile strategies and turning to tablets. While worldwide annual tablet shipments may top 120 million in 2015, according to ABI Research, more than 22% of companies in the US have already formally deployed tablets. In addition, 78% plan to do so by 2013.
Those numbers don’t include unofficial tablet usage in the enterprise, which may well account for the majority of business tablet activity and is spurred by tablet owners eager to bring their new devices to work, in the spirit of consumerization
As a result of this rapid growth, corporate executives are determined not to make the same mistakes made with smartphones, which were originally dismissed as expensive toys, as noted by a Gartner vice president earlier this year. “They are also more willing to see that they don’t need to supply and manage every device that employees use at work,” he added.
