SAP – a blue-chip player in the enterprise software arena – has rolled out 1,000 iPads to staff members around the world.
Talk about eating your own, delicious dog food: SAP CIO Oliver Bussmann tweeted yesterday that the enterprise software vendor has already rolled out iPads to 1,000 employees.
And this isn’t just a superficial show of support for SAP’s new-found embrace of mobility: according to Bussmann, every iPad comes with e-mail, Virtual Private Network (VPN) access to server-based applications through Citrix software and Business Intelligence tools via BusinessObjects.
Apparently SAP”s CIO has also stated that there’s ‘more to come’ on their rollout of iPads. ZDNet reckons this is already single largest rollout of iPads in the world.
If the iPad is deemed a success within top enterprises like SAP that should be a huge boost for its overall momentum in the enterprise space.
