Aragon Research Special Report: Tablets In the Enterprise.
Replacing a Laptop is just the beginning.
Tablets have emerged as one of the hottest and most sought after mobile technologies. We are just at the beginning of an era in which tablets and additional mobile form factors permeate the consumer business markets.
Initially discounted as merely a toy and yet another likely to fail tablet, next generation Tablets, such as the Apple iPad, have helped to accelerate movement into the post-PC era. Consumers have taken to the new form factor and touch-based interface in the tens of millions. The tablet has been absorbed into the fabric of business just as quickly, and enterprises are scrambling to respond to the user-driven onslaught of these devices with relevant and purposeful strategies.
In this special report on tablets, Aragon Research is delivering a call to action. While the market is still up for grabs, with Apple’s iOS with an early commanding lead and Google’s Android moving ahead, and issues related to device management and security are as yet only partially resolved, the opportunity for business is too compelling to wait.
The Special Report: Tablets in the Enterprise
In one of our featured Research Notes titled “The Business Case for Tablets: Too Compelling to Wait” demonstrates that a tablet can drive productivity at half the cost of a laptop PC. There are compelling use cases in nearly every business, and the time is now for business to respond. Since your executives and many other workers are already bringing their own iPads and Android tablets to work, there is no time to wait.
Sales organizations have some of the best opportunities to gain from tablet deployment. In “Tablets for Sales Executives: A Winning Formula” we analyze the breadth of sales tasks and activities that can benefit significantly. For many, well-equipped and properly configured tablets can become the primary, and sometimes only, device provisioned for sales reps.
In “Replace Your Laptop With A Tablet?” we explore one of the first questions hitting business about tablets, with regard to being able to displace and replace PCs. With the compelling business case behind tablets, the question should be “Who can’t replace their laptop with a tablet?” A tablet has become the go-to device for on-the-go-work. For the great many users with limited PC requirements and the need for responsive access to business communications and nearly any form of digital content, a tablet can be considered as their only device. For most, tablets will continue to expand the movement toward an increasing number of computing devices being provided to more and more individuals.
