/e for exaggeration 
Not sure how the pricing works but a website with a single db is counted as one seat I believe. We use a corporate unlimited version.
Of course I use a MBP which is necessary for me to run full desktop class applications. Sure, many people can get by with just an iPad when traveling but how many corporate cubicle workers travel? Seriously I don't know the answer to that but there is absolutely no reason to use an iPad when a full desktop is available and will do a much better job and is more ergonomic to use. People around here seem to think that every employee of every Fortune 500 company including the...
Ok then an iPad is a better desktop than a real desktop because a tiny smudged up screen is better than a 17" monitor and a mouse with real desktop class applications. And try to find a corporate printer that is compatible with Airprint or log on to the network or share files with Windows users. Face it, this is nothing but a Trojan Horse by IBM to get people onto their cloud service which ultimately will work much better from a conventional desktop computer. Apple is just...
Clearly you don't understand the question. Here's my point with a simplified example so perhaps you can comprehend it. Why would someone rather work on a Numbers spreadsheet with an iPad when a perfectly good desktop machine was available?  The other question is: What are some typical corporate uses for an iPad that are not mobile related?  And part two: What percent of corporate users are primarily mobile?
I am also really experienced in Coldfusion going on 15 years. I have a couple really big applications that I wrote and still support. I can say, unequivocally, that php is a much more modern scripting language and also way faster. Although CF can run on UNIX it is better on Windows. I dislike the way that CF connects to databases only through CF admin.  Clunky and slow compared to mysqli. No comparison in my opinion and that "EQ, NEQ, AND" nonsense is just crazy. My...
Cook is suggesting that just like Apple transformed the consumer computer market, iOS can transform and reinvent the enterprise market as well. The problem with that logic is that 90% of consumers do nothing but texting, Facebook, email and consuming entertainment. All simple tasks. Corporate users can use iOS for email, txting, etc, but their daily work description usually includes a lot of stuff that iPads are not very good at. iPads are wonderful but they are a...
Perhaps there are only a handful of activities in the corporate environment where an iOS device is an appropriate solution. Corporate managers are not stupid. If it is obvious that an iOS device would improve efficiency then they will adopt it. If a desktop computer is more suitable for a given task they are not going to swap it out for an iPad just because iPads are cool. What percentage of corporate employees are actually mobile? iPads are great for casual mobile use and...
Quit being a jerk. You obviously don't have the answer to my question.
I really don't understand what is the big deal with iPads in corporate environments. iPhones sure, they are the best phone hands down and everyone needs a good phone, however, you can't really do much work on a phone, but what do corporate employees do with an iPad?   People always bring their iPad to meetings, but in the meetings I attend we sometimes use an iPad for FaceTime with a manager from a different office, but that is about it. Usually someone has a Windows...
