Enterprise IT Wants Consumer Tech
For the CIOs I talk with who've done big tablet rollouts -- we're talking in the 10,000+ employee range -- the big appeal often is the cheap, disposable nature of these consumer-oriented gadgets. They don't need them ruggedized, they don't want ultra-protective sleeves, and they don't want an enterprise price. I see the appeal of Windows tablets, because execs definitely want enterprise-caliber apps on them, and they have loads of Windows-based apps (and dev skills) in house. But consumer-level hardware seems good enough. I'm just offering a small anecdotal sample, though -- is your experience different? Do you need tablet hardware built with the enterprise in mind?
