Looking for an excuse to buy an iPad 2, which hit the streets today? The iPad continues to be used as a device for business as well as pleasure, and several enterprise apps were either released or updated since our last round-up. Take a look and see if any of them justify the expense of a new tablet.

Adobe SiteCatalyst

In addition to announcing its expanded social media analytics tools, Adobe announced a SiteCatalyst iPad app. SiteCatalyst is an Web analytics that Adobe acquired as part of its Omniture acquisition. It has a particular emphasis on e-commerce.


Bombar iPad app

Bomgar announced its iPad Rep Console this week, giving IT and tech support workers the ability to use its remote desktop technology from the tablet. Although Bomgar’s competitor Citrix has been quick to release iPad apps, it hasn’t released an iPad version of its GoToAssit product.

Information Builders

Joining our list of business intelligence tools for the iPad is WebFOCUS from Information Builders. WebFOCUS brings dashboards to multiple mobile devices, including the iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices. Instead of native apps, Information Builders created a Web-based solution that autodetects the device a user is viewing the site on and adjusts its presentation accordingly.

Rackspace Cloud

We already covered Rackspace Cloud 2.0, the updated app for Rackspace administrators. It adds new features such as Chef integration, UK support and and the ability to manage OpenStack clouds.


We also covered VMware’s new iPad app this week. It enables users to access virtual desktops from their iPads, and competes with Citrix Receiver.
