The latest CDN Debate explores the contentious issue over hardware client solutions, namely tablets vs. notebook computers.
Question No. 3: How will notebooks or tablets provide me with a business advantage?
CDN invited two top solution providers to debate this question and others.
Rick Jordan is the North American Vice President, Strategic Alliances for Tenet Computer Group Inc., a perennial CDN Top 100 Solution Provider. Tenet has pioneered mobility solution in the channel. Jordan oversees all operations of Tenet’s North American Mobility Division. Jordan has more than 20 years of experience in IT with various technology firms.
Steve Conaby is the president of one time CDN Solution Provider of the Year CONPUTE. Conaby brings more than a decade of technology consultation to both enterprise and SMB clients. He has transitioned the solution provider to focus on value added services and away from standard technology purchases to include cloud-based platforms and mobile strategies.
There is no doubt that the tablet market has overshadowed notebooks. In 2013, IDC reported that tablet sales overtook notebooks for the first time. The notebook market fell by more than 11 per cent in total units shipped last year, according to IDC.
Find out what Jordan and Conaby have to say about the notebook marketshare decline, if new touch-based operating systems provides the answer for customers and which client device is best for the mobile workforce.
