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!

Format: Paperback
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.

Given the inroads that the iPad is making in the Enterprise, the book is very timely and the content serves as a good commentary on many aspects related to the adoption of the iPad for Enterprise use.

-The book is organized into five parts: Strategy, Architecture, Design, Development and Deployment. This organization works very well to cover the content of this book.
-iPad in the Enterprise is written with a broad set of enterprise readers in mind - IT and non IT executives, architects as well as developers. Different parts are focused on different types of readers and as such each part is fully contained and can be read on its own.
-The enterprise focus is maintained well throughout the book, except for a couple of areas where the treatment of the content does not quite do justice to the enterprise focus.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nathan has created a deep and comprehensive book on deploying iPads into the enterprise. We've all heard of the iPad and how its great for reading, gaming, and viewing movies but there has been less information on how it's useful for business. He answers questions like: What are others doing with the iPad at the individual or corporate level? Which are the relevant business applications? How do individuals, teams, and departments utilize the iPad? What should my security, operations, and information officers be aware of when deploying iPads? Should I build vs buy iPad applications? What basic security & privacy protections should I have?

The book has incredibly useful and deep content applicable to people in a variety of roles - CIOs, Department Leaders, IT, and even app developers. Due to the detail provided, I advise skipping some of the sections less relevant to your needs. You will get more out of the book and you can pass it on to others in your organization, confident they will benefit too.

IPad in the Enterprise by Nathan Clevenger is the most useful resource for every business and professional who does not want to have one foot stuck in the stone age. Extraordinarily well written, this book is both theory based as well as hands on practice.

From the history which is relevant to a full understanding of how a Tablet device is both useful to indispensable to a well thought out section on the organizational deployment of devices in the real world environment, this book covers it all.

Mr. Clevenger even shows the new developer how to jump right in and start developing applications for this very powerful and useful device. If there was any doubt to whether the IPad was just a toy or a really powerful business tool with unlimited potential, this book not only shows that it is, but explain how to make it so.

Written in clear, easy to understand language that even a complete novice can jump right into, the professional will be able to get the benefit of the massive amount of research that went into making this not just a book, but a Bible for using the IPad.

I actually sat down and read it like a novel, which for a technical tome is the highest compliment of all! Very very well done.
