iPad Revolution <br />Fastest Selling Electronic Device EVER <br />16 million iPads sold since April 2010 <br />Analysts estimate that during calendar year 2011, Apple will sell approximately 27 Million iPads <br />What Does This Mean? <br />In Less Than 2 years, the equivalent of ±10 % of the U.S. Population Will Own an iPad<br />By year end 2011 tablets will be outselling pc’s! <br />
Increasing Usage<br />Currently 86% of the Fortune 500 are deploying or testing iPads<br />Apple is adding enterprise security and deployment features with each new IOS version<br />Salesforce.com found in a 2010 survey that 71% of CIO’s reported that tablets were NOT allowed in their enterprise<br />In 2011 that number dropped to 33%!<br />51% had already started deploying tablets for employees<br />Most common industries deploying iPads<br />Financial Services<br />Insurance<br />Medical Devices<br />
Why the Change in Attitude?<br />Size Matters – smart phones simply do not have the screen size to navigate easily, show enough information, or satisfy the multiple-user requirements<br />Consumerization – Apple’s model of “open architecture” for app development has allowed more “true” business app’s to be developed.<br />Ease of Use – training time is shorter, productivity is increased as devices are simplified<br />

Pros and Cons of Tablets<br />Pros<br />Tablets are mobile. As business begins to fully utilize cloud computing, having your work remotely accessible becomes a must. <br />A tablet can make you more accessible and, in turn, more productive. <br />Tablets are very practical tools. As developers continue to design new business apps that improve over time, there will be a growing amount of potential work uses for tablets. <br />Tablets express capability. In a business setting, having and using a tablet can communicate to your clients a feeling of professionalism. <br />If you use your tablet to enhance your work productivity, you will appear more capable. <br />
Pros and Cons Tablets<br />Cons<br />Tablets haven’t reinvented the wheel. Most of the functions performed by a tablet can be performed on a laptop or desktop computer. <br />Yes, tablets may be far more convenient, but does that make them absolutely necessary? <br />Tablets are toys. Similar to smart phones, tablets are designed to function as entertainment, making it easy to become distracted with streaming video or games. <br />Tablets are still a new technology and are therefore expensive. If you aren’t yet convinced a tablet is right for you, given their price, wait a few months to watch how the industry grows.<br />Eventually, cheaper alternatives will be introduced as more popular hardware, like the iPad, drop in price. <br />Size matters – it’s easy to lose site of or forget your tablet device, causing a security risk. <br />
