Saw this site put up by Citrix today– I thought it was an interesting approach–pitching iPads in the enterprise by making the iPad a glorified dumb terminal, via the Citrix Receiver, for accessing your Windows desktop and apps. While I agree that this overcomes a lot of  challenges around managing iPads on enterprise networks, it sort of ignores the elephant in the room–one of the biggest values of the iPad is running iPad apps! And ond of the biggest challenge for enterprise IT folks around iPad apps is the total lack of visibility and control into those apps. So, while I suppose using the iPad as a glorified Windows dumb client helps, I think it sort of misses the point 🙂
