Re-Thinking HR: What Every CIO Needs to Know About Tomorrow's Workforce

Also revealed at its Worldwide Partner Conference was the news that several Microsoft Windows-based tablets -- made for consumers and enterprise customers alike -- will be released in the coming months. There is a real business benefit for CIOs in the potential for Windows-based tablets in the enterprise. With the exception of the Cisco Cius, the other so-called "media" tablets -- such as iPad and future Android-based devices -- in no way target corporate customers. Several Windows-based tablets will. And, since they will run Windows 7, it will (in theory anyway) lend them to smooth integration with Microsoft applications in use in your organization.
