Why Read This Report

In 2013, it seemed like tablets were taking over the world, threatening the PC's position with the workforce. But the overall tablet market plateaued in 2014 and remains slow-growing and tepid in 2015. However, infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders shouldn't be distracted by quarterly shipments; tablet usage across the entire market will only continue to grow. In enterprise settings, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) will continue to be a prominent practice among information workers. And company-owned tablets are growing at a much faster rate than the overall market. This report forecasts the overall tablet market through 2018 and offers I&O leaders insight into how to construct a tablet strategy, which tablets to purchase, and how to make tablet deployments successful.
