About iPad and iPhone in the enterprise

Enterprise iPad and iPhone use is helping employees become more efficient workers. But for IT professionals in the enterprise, iPhone and iPad use can complicate management. Most organizations are not accustomed to managing iPhone and iPad hardware in addition to traditional desktops, and there are limited enterprise iPad and iPhone services for management. One benefit is that Apple makes the iPhone and iPad hardware in addition to the devices’ operating system, iOS. That means IT departments that support enterprise iPhone and iPad use don’t have to worry about the fragmentation issues that affect other mobile devices. Apple also maintains strict controls over many iPad and iPhone services and applications. The resources in this section include consumerization news, including coverage of enterprise iPad and iPhone use, plus how-to articles for managing hardware.
