Challenges remain in integrating iPads with corporate computing systems, but there are plenty of reasons to bring them on board, says PC Magazine analyst Samara Lynn. They make it easy to:

  1. Connect to your company’s email. Microsoft ActiveSync makes this possible for companies with their own Exchange servers and it’s even easier with cloud-based email.
  2. Manage them on a Windows network. Windows Intune allows online management of Windows network.
  3. Support VPN and RDP. iPads work with many virtual private networks and Remote Desktop Protocol.
  4. Access company data. Appli­­ca­­tions allow users to access Micro­­soft documents and edit them.
  5. Set up videoconferencing anywhere. Use built in Face­­Time or others, such as GoToMeeting and WebEx.
  6. Take quick notes. Using OneNote and Evernote.
