Surprise, the biggest headache with the iPad in enterprise.
In an article today, there was a deal on how enterprises have learned to deal with the iPad. An estimated 7-8 million iPads are being used in commercial applications. Between Apple and app builders, most of the major issues have been resolved. One of the big items is security, but the iOS has been improved so much as to be compared favorably with RIM. Right now, they contend that the strongest security will be with Apple and the RIM PlayBook. They said that Android was always 18 months behind Apple and is not expected to catch up.
The main issue they said was going to be a problem for iPad users is not the iPad itself. It is the lack of adequate infrastructure to support it. The amount of wifi within enterprise, or the lack of adequate wifi, I should say. And the lack of enough 3G and 4G outside enterprises to support the rapid rate of iPad growth.
The iPhone started this issue, but the iPad has brought it to the crises point. In our homes, it is just a matter of updating the wifi server, but when you get a large business, it becomes a major headache. And the telephone networks are spending billions to expand and update their wireless capacity, and little is said about the fiberoptic demands they cannot keep up with. Nor the server farms needed. How long before this becomes a national crises? They declare the electrical grid a national crises years ago and nothing has been really done about it.
