January 29, 2015: Microsoft has released Office for Tablets, which can have powerful implications on infrastructure decisions. Have students read the article at and ask them to think of a situation in which a firm would provide Android tablets to managers who travel quite a bit. Ask them the following:

(1) Would the absence or presence of Office on tablet platform affect the decision?

(2) Given the roll-out, how would a tablet now be more attractive than a thin laptop for the travelers?

(3) Would the pricing model have an impact on the screen size that you would choose to provide to the travelers?

(4) What infrastructure decision would you make in the area of soft keyboards versus keyboard cases with real keys? Would keyboard size enter into your decision-making?
