iPhones are increasingly popping up in the workplace as an e-mail, calendar and productivity tool. Author Ryan Faas has monitored this trend and is releasing his book "iPhone at Work: Increasing Productivity for Busy Professionals" in September. He has given IT Business Edge an excerpt of his book, now posted in the Knowledge Network.
In a recent interview with IT Business Edge, Faas says Apple is making an effort to appeal to the enterprise, but still has a way to go, particularly with security.
"I think Apple took a really good first step by allowing remote wipe using Exchange or MobileMe. And I think the MyiPhone feature of MobileMe is also something that is good for that space. I think Apple is slowly taking more steps in (the security) direction. I don't think it's quite perfect for every situation yet, but I think they will eventually get there."
