IPad2 Uses in the Enterprise

What are some of the best uses of ipad2 in the enterprise beyond email?

"Best" is situational, but here are some things I use my iPad for in my company:
- Note taking
- Presentations
- Task management
- Research on the web (especially to look up points or data during meetings)
- Keeping my calendar
There will be many more uses depending on the company or organization involved. For instance, many medical organizations are using iPads to replace the traditional patient chart and hand-written doctors' notes. This may provide some additional ideas:

  • Apex use in the enterprise?

    Any Apex experts care to respond to the list of advantages / disadvantages that we have come up with - while doing due diligence for potential rollout of Apex as a development platform for the enterprise?
    Many thanks in advance.
    Please note that we know little to nothing about Apex. But we do know the database. I have read other threads in this forum where it is mentioned that all database utilites (dbms_*) are available to be used in apex - and this is a major plus point - agreed. Do know that metalink is apex based.
    Would love to have oracle apex developers respond.
    Oracle Application Express Architecture - Due Diligence
    Advantages
    (1)     RAD development for data centric Web applications.
    (2)     Out of box support for some HTML page templates. For example, sort, search, save data to CSV, ...
    (3)     Reduce required skill sets for PL/SQL developers on web application development.
    (4)     Performance boost on a small scale non-enterprise Web applications.
    (5)     Single vendor within integrated Oracle administration environment.
    (6)     Out of box charting and reporting supports.
    Disadvantages
    (1)     Application operates within Oracle instance which imposes considerable resource overheads due to HTTP session tracking and JVM environment.
    (2)     APEX supports through discussion forum not a formal support channel.
    (3)     This two tier non-SOA data centric configuration requires high end machines to power up Oracle instances for mission critical applications. N-tier SOA architecture can easily scale up and scale out by using economic efficient hardware.
    (4)     A non-traditional security configuration requires either database accounts or APEX accounts.
    (5)     It requires very specific skill sets if future application enhancements does not fall into out of box APEX templates.
    (6)     Single Sign On (SSO) requires add-on SDK which makes it quite difficult and sometimes impossible to integrate with other applications.
    (7)     It operates under Oracle HTTP server with J2EE environment. This requires a different technology expertise for performance tuning.
    (8)     APEX application is vendor specific and offers no portability at all.
    Summary
    (1)     APEX is targeted to replace MS Access like applications to provide better security, scalability and stability.
    (2)     APEX is well suited for web RAD development by DBAs.
    (3)     APEX is suited for data centric application such as maintain some database records….
    (4)     APEX is not suited for provisioning services.
    (5)     APEX is not suited for high volume transaction Web applications.
    (6)     APEX is not suited for any applications required LDAP typed security or SSO.
    (7)     APEX does not provide any portability outside of Oracle.

    I think you need to review some of these comments..

    (2)     APEX supports through discussion forum not a

    requires high end machines to power up Oracle
    instances for mission critical applications. N-tier
    SOA architecture can easily scale up and scale out by

    (4)     A non-traditional security configuration requires
    either database accounts or APEX accounts.NOT TRUE. Please review documents again.. YOu can BUILD internal security in application, or rely on LDAP or Single Sign on from Oracle..
    (5)     It requires very specific skill sets if future
    application enhancements does not fall into out of
    box APEX templates.HTML and CSS development skills. If you develop web sites, you should be comfortable with this..
    (6)     Single Sign On (SSO) requires add-on SDK which
    makes it quite difficult and sometimes impossible to
    integrate with other applications.Wrong here again. Please refer to documentation.

    (8)     APEX application is vendor specific and offers no

  • ICloud Usage In The Enterprise

    Forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong location, but it seemed to be the best suited area...
    With the announcement of iCloud, I've been trying to find information on how it will be managed on devices that are used in the enterprise? The company I work for has approximately 200 iPad users and 300 iPhone 4 users that sync their corporate mail, calendar and contacts to their devices.
    Each of these users has tethered their device to their own personal iTunes account so they can add music, apps, video, etc to the device as they wish. We secure these devices using a MobileIron appliance along with Apple MDM certificates that allow us to implement security policies on the devices.
    If these users choose to sign up for iCloud, does anyone yet know if it will only allow your me.com account to sync to the cloud? The last thing we would want is for these users to have their corporate mail/contacts/calendars synched to the devices and then simultaneously synched up to iCloud.
    Anyone have any suggestions on how we might combat this? Or if it will even be possible to sync accounts via iCloud for anything other than me.com accounts? Thanks!

    HI All,
    Actually I face the same problem, only mine is using Apple MDM on Lion Server. We plan to deploy 2000 or more iphone 3gs on company cost. Currently in progress and already around 900 devices live using inhouse corporate application.
    Our challenge is on security administration things. Wondering if there is somekind like iCloud that we can use in corporate to track the location in case of lost. we are now experiencing already two device lost on duty.
    Currently all devices that we already deployed are registered to iCloud using one Apple-ID, no problem on registration process. However when I open iCloud, only limited devices was listed, I think just about 90 devices on the list. Unfortunately the two devices that reported lost are not on the list. So I feel hopeless now.
    While MDM can only do Wipe and other things, but can not tracking the location.
    Appreciate if someone can give me a clue the alternative to overcome those issue. Thanks.
    Regards

  • I'm trying to set up my iPad2.  I am entering my Apple ID and get a message that says "try another apple id, this ID is already being used.  The only time I've used this Apple ID (my email), is when I bought a mac for my college student.

    Thank you...I had selected the incorrect option to create an Apple ID....so backing up a few pages and doing as you stated worked!

  • We have the enterprise system on our office computer and I have one iphone and 2 ipads. One iphone and one ipad2 is mine and the other is my wife's.  We share a common password for the ipads. How do I update to ios5?

    I think this is rather complicated and I really need some help. I am the pastor of the church and we have the enterprise system.  We use an exchange server if that means anything. I began with an iPhone 4 that connects with our system. And now I have to iPads. One of the iPads is registered in my name and the other in my wife's.
    I'm confused as to how to update to IOS 5. Do I keep my password is the same for both my wife's and my iPad?
    Also because we are on the enterprise system, my notes from Outlook do not wirelessly connect from my work computer to my iPhone and to my iPad. I have been told that they have not worked this out yet. Will this change with the new operating system?
    It all is very confusing to me and I would appreciate some help. Thank you very much

  • How do i get the hp officejet pro 8600 premium to print from my ipad2 using airprint?

    how do i get the hp officejet pro 8600 premium to print from my ipad2 using airprint? The iPad does not see the printer.

    Hi RiverBirch,
    What brand and model is your router?
    First, connect your printer to your router.
    1. From printer front panel, press Wireless>Wireless Settings>Wireless Setup Wizard and follow the onscreen instructions to successfully connect your printer with an IP address.
    Secondly, connect your iPad to the same router.
    1. Connect your iPad to the Internet and download the free HP ePrint Home & Biz app from the apps store.
    2. Connect your iPad to the same network as the printer. Settings>Network.
    3. Use the new HP Home & Biz app to print and scan photos or docs from your iPad!
    Alternatively, you can also perform Airprint on the iPad thru the wireless network from the Photos menu in your iPad.
    Please click the blue Kudos star in the post that helped you.

  • Using iPad in the Enterprise; close but challenges......

    Getting closer to being able to use iPad in the Enterprise.  Two challenges so far; sorting functions in Numbers Application not existent? Work around? and the second issue, tracking changes in a word document or Pages document when using Pages on iPad?
    Can't analyze data without sorting feature.  Can't review legal or contracts without seeing who changed what?  Any workarounds besides use my Mac Air?
    Thanks

  • Use HCM processes and Forms without using the Enterprise Portal

    is it possible to leverage existing HR Admin Services (HCM processes and Forms) functionality without using the Enterprise Portal?
    1) Create an Adobe form and Interface using SFP
    2) Set up ISR and Form Scenario
    3) Set up Forms configuration to use existing Backend and generic Services
    4) Set up workflow to updated Backend using Services
    is it possible to do the above steps and not use the Portal? If Yes, how do we present the forms to the Manager, and provide different buttons that appears on the Portal by default?
    Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Saurabh

    Hi Saurabh,
    your assumptions and findings (items can not be started from the backend workflow inbox etc.) are correct: These processes can not be started without the Portal and it is not intended to do this.
    The above mentioned backend report are only forseen for implementation and testing purposes and not for productive use.
    In addition to the fact, that you already can't execute the work items a lot of other features of the framework (Process Browser etc.) are only available through the Portal.

  • Create the user master records using the Enterprise Portal

    Hello gurus!!
    I'm configuring SRM 7.0 with EP.
    I'm configuring the organizational structure, and steps guide (pdf and Solution Manager ) are:
    1. Go to transaction SU01 and create an ABAP User. (SRMADMIN)
    2. Assign this user the administrator role /SAPSRM/ADMINISTRATOR
    3. As the administrator, creater the organizational plan
    4. Create the remaining organizational unit
    5. Using the Enterprise Portal application, Business Parter:Employee, create the user master records for the departmental managers.
    How I must create the user in Enterprise Portal? What user I have to use to log on in the Enterprise Portal application? Has the user to be integrated in the organzational structure??
    Thanks in advance!!!!
    Best regards.

  • I'm trying to record audio into my iPad2 using GarageBand and an iRig, but I can't monitor my tracks at the same time as recording, meaning if I lay down a drum track and attempt to record guitar, I can't hear the drums while recording. Thoughts?

    I'm trying to record audio into my iPad2 using GarageBand and an iRig, but I can't monitor my tracks at the same time as recording, meaning if I lay down a drum track and attempt to record guitar, I can't hear the drums while recording. Thoughts?

    Hi, I have this exact same problem. I haven't been using an iRig, just a cheap USB-jack cable. I managed to do this with the first cable I bought, but since it broke I've been unable to find a replacement that allows me to hear the drums while recording. DId you manage to get over this issue? If so I would really like to know how. Thanks and best wishes.

  • If you are traveling in Europe, do you need both an adapter AND a voltage regulator to charge the IPad2 and the iphone? Or, the reverse, will it hurt either if I use both the adapter AND the voltage convertor?

    If you are traveling in Europe, do you need both an adapter AND a voltage convertoro charge the IPad2 and the iphone? Or, the reverse, will it hurt either if I use both the adapter AND the voltage convertor?

    You may only need adapters for the different kind of sockets, depending of the country you want to travel. A voltage converter is not needed.
    The Apple power units are multi voltage devices, supporting a range from 110 V to 240 V. as you can see on the labels. O.K. for most of the labels you need a magnifier, but its on them.

  • Could my ipad2 connects to the Internet using SIM card or USB Modem?

    Could my ipad2 connects to the Internet using SIM card or USB Modem?

    If you have a 3G iPad, it can connect to the internet using cellular data. As the iPad has no USB port, you can't connect a USB modem. You can use what is called a MiFi, though. They connect to cellular service and create a personal WiFi hotspot.

    would i be able to use the lion internet recovery since my college uses WPA/WPA2 Enterprise wifi? Im confused becasue this exact one is not listed under apples page about os x recovery.

    Probably not.  You'd need to go somewhere that Internet isn't on a locked-down wireless network.
    See this for specifics.  "It depends."

  • I loaded photos to my new iPad2 using iCloud. The photos went in all jumbled up. Now I can't delete them or delete the albums. How can I delete?

    I loaded photos to my new iPad2 using iCloud. The photos went in all jumbled up. Now I can't delete them or delete the albums. How can I delete?

    Well, typically one of the fixes that I would suggest is to try to delete the waiting icons. WIFi in a public places like McDonalds, Starbucks, B&N, etc. is not the greatest and I would avoid those places for downloading and updating apps. But I do realize that not everybody has access to Wifi in their homes.
    These are all things that have worked at one time or another for other users. Hopefull one of them will work for you. Just ignore whatever does not apply or anything that you have already tried.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
    Make sure that you do not have a stalled download in iTunes - a song or podcast .... if you have a download in there that did not finish, complete that one first. Only one thing can download at a time on the iPad so that could be what is causing the problem.
    If that doesn't work - sign out of your account, restart the iPad and then sign in again.
    Settings>iTunes & App Store>Apple ID. Tap your ID and sign out. Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    Go back to Settings>iTunes & App Store>Sign in and then try to update again. Tap one waiting icon only if necessary to start the download stream.
    You can also try deleting the waiting icons - tap and hold down on an icon until it wiggles - the tap the X on the icon to delete it. Then try to download again.
    You can try resetting all settings. Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your app preferences and device settings again.
    If all else fails, download the updates or the apps in iTunes on your computer and then sync the content to your iPad.

  • Problem in building the enterprise application using Ant -Wrkshop

    Did you:
    a). Ensure you're using the correct version of WLS (it appears to me you're using a standalone WLS)? - correct version is 10.3.3
    b). Install the application development runtime 11.1.1.3?
    c). Extend the domain with the JRF?
