IT departments must react quickly to evolving technology trends

For corporate IT departments, one of the biggest challenges is being able to handle the ever-evolving landscape of tech innovations. A few years ago, the thought of a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy or cloud computing, was unheard of. However, as the functionality of these technologies has developed, IT Principals need to be ready for whatever may be coming down the pipeline. For example, a potential shift from traditional to mobile computing.
According to a recent report from Forrester Research, Apple will sell $7 billion worth of Macs and $11 billion in iPads to the corporate market in 2013. In 2014, the numbers will increase to $8 billion in Mac sales and $13 billion in iPads.
There are a couple of different factors at work here. The first is Apple's push into the business world not just with tablets, but with Macs. The second is that iPads are out selling computers by a growing margin.
Forrester analyst Andrew Bartels was interviewed in a recent article from TechCrunch about why Apple is succeeding in the business landscape. According to Bartels, the company offers products that employees want to use and feel proud to have. It is also at the top of the class in tablet computing with the iPad.
Mobility is a growing demand in the business world. The increased functionality of iPads and their application, partnered with the benefits of having a successful mobile workforce, are making devices like tablets a more desired tool.
