Survey Shows IT Driving Tablet Adoption

By Theresa Cramer

From the press release:

Alfresco, the cloud connected content platform, today announced the results of its 2012 Global Tablet in the Enterprise survey. According to the survey results, mobile and tablet adoption is being led by IT departments, which proves counterintuitive to the general perception of the "consumerization of IT" trend that resourceful and driven employees bring consumer technology into the workplace, sneaking under the radars of unwitting IT departments that are resistant to change...

IT departments are leading tablet adoption.

o   Roughly 56% of respondents were from IT with over 90% of respondents reported having used tablet devices and over 75% have used tablets for work purposes.

o   Contrary to conventional “consumerization of IT” thinking, IT is both aware and excited about tablets and is actively thinking about the best use cases inside their companies.
