May 21, 2014


Why Read This Brief

On May 20, 2014, Microsoft unveiled the latest member of the Surface line, the Surface Pro 3, a Windows 8.1 touchscreen laptop that, among other improvements, carries a larger screen than the Surface Pro 2. Microsoft designed the new Surface with a variety of seemingly incremental improvements that, once assembled in the same device, make it surprisingly innovative. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) pros should think about this device as a departure from the earlier Surface releases. But how will it find its way into your enterprise? Will it be a popular BYOD choice for employees willing to spend their own money? This report answers these and other questions, supported by workforce data.
