Tablet Plus: Addressing the 2-in-1 Needs of Today's Enterprise Users
This IDC study discusses IDC's views about tablet deployments in business and the factors that drive decisions around these business purchases. Tablets - or more specifically Apple iPads - are appearing in greater numbers in enterprises around the world as IT departments respond to end-user demand for the highly mobile and easy-to-use device.
This document explores the opportunities for vendors using the Windows operating system in the space.
"Improvements stemming from Microsoft's Windows 8.1 upgrade as well as new processor advances represent a significant opportunity for hardware vendors in the second half of 2013 and beyond," says Tom Mainelli, IDC's research director for Tablets. "Early Windows 8 tablets failed to excite end users, but the industry will get another shot at impressing them, and it's important that the next round of products hit the mark."
