Book Description

Discover how to plan, design, develop, and deploy iPad apps for the enterprise

Having taken the enterprise by storm, iPads are now in the hands of workers in virtually every level of companies in almost every industry, and users are beginning to demand line-of-business applications to help them be more productive and efficient from wherever they are. From business intelligence and executive dashboards to customer relationship management and order capture solutions, the iPad has incredible potential to leverage existing investments in information systems and enterprise applications. Even many paper-driven processes today, from sales presentations to survey data capture, can be dramatically enhanced through the introduction of the iPad.

This book is a guide for how business and IT must collaborate to develop a mobile strategy to properly take advantage of this transformative technology. Readers will also learn about the high-level software architectural options, the importance of design and user experience, application development tools and techniques, and best practices for deploying and managing iPads in the enterprise.

iPad in the Enterprise gets you started immediately planning, designing, developing, deploying, and managing iPad apps specifically for the enterprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars iPad in the Enterprise August 4, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a well written timely book on the topic of enterprise mobile strategy generally and the iPad specifically. The only knock against the book is that it feels like two books in one (the first half is written on strategy for CIO-types) and the second half is written for IT practioners (e.g. there are code samples!).

Well worth a read!

Given all the urgency and uncertainty around the enterprise use of mobile devices, iPad for the Enterprise is a welcome addition to the literature available on the topic.

Nathan Clevenger has been involved in the development of mobile strategies and applications for over a decade, and the book reflects it. He begins with a consideration of iPad strategy that's a wonderful primer for anyone involved in mobility at their organization, from developers in the trenches to executive leadership.

It sets the stage through a consideration of how we reached the current state of mobility and introduces the concept of the consumerization of IT, i.e., IT changes being driven in a decentralized way by the "consumers" in the enterprise (the employees) rather than in a centralized way by IT.

From there, it moves to more practical considerations and presents an overview of how to build an enterprise mobile strategy and application roadmap. Both are somewhat general--it's difficult to generalize meaningfully about either of these activities--but nonetheless useful, especially for folks who've never participated in creating enterprise strategy before.

With the groundwork in place, Clevenger moves through all the phases of iPad app development: architecture, design, development, and deployment. And while none of this is not intended as a detailed ho- to guide or instructional manual for app development, he manages to get in enough technical detail and code samples to make this a valuable first-stop for technical folks looking to better understand what's happening under the hood of the iPad.

All in all, the book is a strong offering.

THis book is great! I recommend it, however, since ICTs evolve crazy fast, new apps for a better use of ripad in enterprise are missing in the book. For example now you have Office for ipad or Beesy (an all-in-one productivity application).
You definitly should read the book you have to keep p to date as well!
