QuickOffice: Tablets Driving “Work Anywhere” Ecosystem
The tablet is driving a “Work Anywhere” system in which mobile devices are connected to the cloud, according to the conference’s keynote speaker Alan Masarek, CEO of QuickOffice. He said that productivity applications on mobile devices only “became real” 24 months ago with the introduction of the iPad. Even then, most people were using their devices mainly for media consumption until the end of last year.
Today, Masarek said, the number of direct enterprise tablet purchases is quite small, but that is expected to change. Indeed, in the next three years, he expects enterprises to account for a third of tablet purchases.
