How the iPad Fits Into IT

PCWorld: How the IPad Fits Into IT’s John C. Welch tackles important iPad-in-IT topics, including MS Exchange support, network impact and IT support issues.

“A lot of bits have given their life in the last few weeks so that writers can fill your computer screen with lots of words about the iPad’s role in IT. The iPad will either grind your network to a halt, kill productivity, and drive us all to live in caves poking at the dirt with sticks should someone be foolish enough to let one into the enterprise, or it will usher in a new age of flying cars, zeppelin houses, and pill food as part of our inevitable evolution into pure energy.

I’m exaggerating, but only by a little. So as an IT Director in a company where we support iPhones, iPod touches, a few Windows Mobile phones, and other assorted smartphones, and knowing how similar the iPad is to the iPhone and iPod touch, I’d like to inject a bit of sobriety into the packet war being conducted over Apple’s forthcoming tablet.”
