(22-Nov-10) When Apple launched the iPhone in 2007, information technology experts declared it unsuitable for business use – not least because of security concerns.
That’s changed. The iPhone and more recent iPad are now credible business options, declares Forrester Research.
Recent figures from Apple bear that out. More than 80 per cent of Fortune 500 companies are deploying iPhones or using them in pilot projects. In the first 90 days after the iPad’s launch this past spring, half the Fortune 500 deployed or tested it.
