Apple forge enterprise app pact - Oh Baby, What's Next?

Very interesting read. Although they do knock Android at the end and give Microsoft some chance.

There are two articles you should read.
It is my belief that in the next few years the Windows platform will lose ground to the mobile devices which are supporting 'other' operating systems.  I also believe that Microsoft is going to have to separate Windows and Office. The control of Windows Operating System is losing and Office, to succeed, needs to be on all devices beyond Windows devices - and quickly. 

The second article above is a bit more general and I believe that Android is making inroads to the Enterprise through the Consumer and that is the important part. The "USER" is the most important asset of any Enterprise and they, the "USER", are getting smarter and smarter, quicker and quicker, better and better, at every turn in this world of technology. 

I am impressed with how many people I talk to, not in the tech world, that have Samsung TV's and are transmitting things from their phone, as well as laptop or tablet, to their TV. People who 3 years ago would have laughed at you. 3 years ago.

This is a different world than it was in 2010 and it will be greatly different by the end of 2015. If you are not thinking away from your past methods you could be left behind. 

Or, better put, If you continue to think along the path that it took you to get where you are you will never get ahead. Times change, you must be ahead of the change. Get excited about the future not fearful.
