Cisco ends the Cius Tablet due to BYOD

App Management

Cisco has announced that they would be discontinuing "further investment" in the Cius tablet citing the trend of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) as the major contributor. Cisco's OJ Winge states on the Cisco blog that "employees are bringing their preferences to work and BYOD is the new norm; collaboration has to happen beyond a walled garden and any-to-any connectivity is a requirement, not a nice to have." Along with the device, the Cius "App Store" (AppHQ) that was launched in June 2011 will most likely be shuttered as well. The concept of a specific app store for business apps for a single device is flawed, especially with so narrow a focus. Rather, the market has shown that business users prefer a "curated" private app store (or app catalog) tailored to their requirements within their organizations. For the consumer (B-to-C) apps, "public app stores" from Apple, Amazon, and Google will dominate, competing on the basis one-click purchasing, ease of use, and comprehensiveness.
