The benefits of adopting enterprise-focused tablets in your workplace are well-established by this point, and they bear repeating. Tablets are portable, versatile options to the traditional workplace notebook, and their dual-function nature means that employers may forego the usual laptop-and-mobile-device combo and commit to a single all-purpose tablet.
While this is true, IT teams are well aware of the barriers to widespread enterprise adoption of tablets. Historically, the leading tablets on the market have been powered by iOS or Android, while the modern workplace is still overwhelmingly Windows-focused. The time and effort to bridge those two worlds (non-Windows tablets to a Windows workplace) is often prohibitive, and no one knows this challenge better than Andrew Stavrou, Enterprise PC and Mobility Architect at Softchoice.
We talked to Andrew about his personal experiences with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, which, in his words, is a product “the enterprise has been wanting for years.”
With flexible working arrangements available in many organizations these days, the use of tablets and mobile devices is now prevalent. In fact, 95 per cent of companies permit their use. Tablets provide a myriad of benefits to users, combining the portability of a smartphone with the full range of functions traditionally found in a laptop. While there are many tablets available in the marketplace, perhaps the most well-recognized is the iPad.
