iPad for Business

This Wall Street Journal article looks at how the iPad is quickly making its way through the ranks of corporate environments. One reason for this smooth adoption trend is all the logistical challenges were solved with the iPhone. IT departments in combination with Apple have been slowly/steadily integrating support for the iPhone over the last few years. Given that the iPad runs the same OS as the iPhone corporate integration is far more seamless. This lets users and companies focus on productivity Apps. For example, Mercedes-Benz is loading a credit-application App so that potential buyers can start the application process while standing near a vehicle. The article cites examples from Bausch & Lomb and Kaiser Permanente as well. The long battery life, quick startup, and platform stability allow for a wide variety of potential usage in the corporate environment.
