The iPad continues to gain momentum in the enterprise arena. This week one of the big deployments announced is at JP Morgan Chase & Co, another big, Wall Street blue blood firm.
The firm will be giving iPads to all associates in its global investment banking division, and will use it for email, contacts, and calendars via Outlook (and Exchange presumably).

MicroStrategy, a business intelligence software maker, has deployed 1,100 Apple iPads to executives and sales personnel to conduct critical job-related tasks. The company said it expects 700 more iPads to be deployed soon.
MicroStrategy are another major enterprise outfit who are embracing the iPad in a big way. In fact, in a huge way. They’ve got an app of their own in the iPad App Store and it’s one of the most popular free apps in the business category. Their recent rollout of the iPad to their staff is even more impressive when you learn that the company employs 2,000 people – so they’ve already got the iPsd in the hands of more than half their workforce, and their plans to rollout 700 more will mean 90% of their staff have one.
