I knew tablets were becoming ubiquitous when I was having dinner at Alize in Las Vegas and was given a tablet in response to my request for their wine list. Sure enough, they had a robust “wine list app” that let me drill down on certain wines I was interested in, read tasting notes, view pictures of their vinyards and ascertain the degree of the slope that the grapes were grown on. Yes, that’s when I realized we were really on to something here.
We’re at an interesting point in the adoption curve, however, where people are recognizing that tablets can make their lives easier… but they aren’t really sure how yet. The reality is that, with unlimited possibilities for apps, the sky is the limit – both personally and professionally. Soon, business people will wonder how they ever survived without these app-laiden tablets to solve their daily problems. The issue now is simply creativity. What problems do we need to solve, and how can an app help? It will be interesting to watch as app development truly takes off as a service offering in the business consulting industry.
Let’s hear from you: how are you using apps to improve your business?
