Mastering The Business Tablet Landscape

November 5, 2012


Why Read This Report

Tablets are the darlings of hypermobile employees who want to be always connected and productive. They are the newest player in the mobile landscape and are even starting to be a viable alternative to the workhorse of business computing — the PC. In 2016, 375 million tablets will be sold globally and 760 million will be in use. In this report, we've identified five business scenarios for how employees use tablets, and we use Forrester's 2012 Tech Marketing Navigator data to highlight a critical concern: IT dominates the tablet decision process, and it shouldn't. The business criticality of tablet solutions means that IT and business should cooperate at six flash points in the acquisition and deployment process.
