Many IT and business professionals are already using tablets – in fact, a recent IDG Connect research shows that 71 % already own tablets, and of those that don’t 90 % are intending to buy one over the next 12 months. As bring your own device (BYOD) will soon become the norm, these devices are going to be used for work and there are many factors that companies need to consider. In her blog Kathryn Cave looks at how the growth of tablets could affect business, and discusses how tablets could shape businesses between now and 2020.
