Tablets in the Workforce
Some new research from Forrester Research offers a glimpse into the presence of tablets in the workforce. There’s not a lot of surprising info here, but some useful data points. Apple is the dominant brand, followed by Android. Tablets are a work device for one in 10 information workers globally. Consumerization is the driving force behind workplace tablets, to Apple’s advantage. The application list starts with email and falls off rapidly from there, probably due to the lack of app availability on work tablets.
The survey was fielded in Q4 2011 by Forrester Research’s Strategic Planning Forrsights.
