Why Companion Devices?
Companion devices (such as Windows-based tablets, iPads, and Android devices) are becoming pervasive in work environments. People like these devices because they are lightweight, have long battery life, and bring improved user experiences with touch interfaces and “instant on” performance. While some can use these companion devices to meet all of their needs, in enterprise environments many use these in conjunction with existing work PCs. These devices are also enabling new categories of cloud-connected applications, while also providing the business productivity capabilities that organizations have come to expect from existing PC form factors.
