Deploying iPads to employees of medium size company in Milwaukee

Your company has decided to implement distribution of new iPads to their employees, who will then use them for the work duties. The management of your company has decided that you will head up the team who will be responsible for the acquisition and distribution of these devices and also the setup and management of them. You first thought would be where do I start? Well throughout this discussion I will give you some pointers and some suggestions as to the steps and tasks you will want to consider when taking on such a huge project. One of the first steps you will want to discuss with your project team is what version of iPad do you want to buy to distribute to your employees? If you decide that you want to get the newest version, which as of this writing would be the iPad air 2. If you choose to buy these devices for your company you can expect to spend anywhere from $400 to $500 depending on where you get them from.

If you decide to go with a slightly older version then the cost would be a little bit less, with the cost of each device coming just in at about $250 for these versions. One of the next decisions would be to decide who in the company will be getting these devices. For the sake of this article, let’s say that you have a...

These would be Sony who makes the PlayStation 4, Microsoft who has the Xbox One and then Nintendo who owns the Wii U.

A few years ago, almost everyone who owned an Xbox 360 had heard of the red ring of death. This problem would sometimes happen to systems with no warning. This issue would show itself by having the normal green power rings that signified that the machine was up and running, suddenly turn red and start flashing. This was accompanied by complete system failure. This issue was reported by some to affect as many as 54% of all Xbox’s in circulation.   In the current generation of game consoles there is still the possibility of technical issues showing their ugly face. For the PlayStation 4 the Top 4 reported problems are: The console randomly turning off by itself; having no audio or video even when plugged in correctly; the PS 4 randomly freezing at different times; and reporting some sort of problem with the disk drive. This is not to say that the Xbox One has not had its share of problems. The good news is now the consumer has an option for fixing their...
