IT warming up to tablets

More IT departments are jumping on the tablet bandwagon — or at least giving in to employee demand.

The results of our 2011 Windows Purchasing Intentions Survey show that fewer organizations will outright ban tablets next year, while more will extend support from C-level execs to the general employee population.

About 54% of respondents said their shops now support tablets on some level, and 68% said they would by next year. On the flip side, only 6% said they would strictly forbid tablets next year, down from 10% this year.

Check out the full results:

2011 2012
Support tablet use only by C-level execs 37% 31%
Support tablet use by general employees 17% 37%
Allow tablet use but no support 30% 20%
Strictly forbid tablets 10% 6%
