[Deloitte]Tablets in the enterprise: more than just a toy

Un article interessant de Deloitte, sobre els tablets en el món de l’empresa durant el 2011. Aquí en teniu un resum:

First, and already the most apparent, many consumers initially buy tablet computers as personal media devices, but quickly discover they are also useful for work. (…)

Second, certain industry verticals seem poised to start using tablets in fairly large numbers over the course of the year; in fact, trials are already underway. The retail, manufacturing and healthcare industries are considered the most likely early adopters, primarily due to (…)

Third, enterprise software providers are rapidly responding to Fortune 500 customer requests for tablet-specific software. Large players in ERP, ECM, CRM and other enterprise applications are combining with desktop virtualization providers to(…).

Security is already being discussed as a potentially big issue for enterprise tablets. In some ways tablets are more secure than PCs – at time of writing no tablet-specific virus has been reported, and most don’t even have USB ports, eliminating a common security weak point.
