Having played around with an iPhone in the Apple store in Sydney, I’ve been reflecting on the hype and talking to an Apple guru I know, Damian Damjanovski, to understand better how and where it fits as an enterprise business technology.
Personally I think there is a lot of misinformation flying around about the iPhone from all sides, however I did enjoy this comment:
"I don’t recall Apple going after the Enterprise…More the Enterprise came after Apple."
Lets not forget how the BlackBerry first infiltrated the enterprise. If I worked for enterprise IT, I’d want to be on the front foot with the iPhone this time around. Perhaps this explains why a law firm like Mallesons Stephen Jaques is evaluating the iPhone sooner, rather than later? To me, that sounds like a smart move.
What do you think?
