Remember all the talk earlier this year about the iPad's limited market? Well, not only has the iPad been a huge hit with consumers, but it's also making a mark in the enterprise, with companies like Wells Fargo, SAP and Mercedes-Benz throwing their support behind the Apple tablet.
Bloomberg reported Tuesday that executives at Wells Fargo are fans of the device, and the bank has ordered a "bunch" of them -- it just can't get them yet, thanks to the iPad's popularity. Wells Fargo VP Amy Johnson, who told Bloomberg that she used the iPad to demonstrate financial products at a recent conference, said she carries it with her everywhere.
Two months after a mutual parting of ways with SAP, former CEO Léo Apotheker has surfaced, joining the board of GT Nexus, a trade management software vendor based in Oakland.
A 20-plus year veteran of SAP, Apotheker resigned in early February, though he was shown the door by the vendor when it declined to renew his contract. His stint at the top was short-lived: he became co-chief executive in April 2008, as the company transitioned its management from CEO Henning Kagermann, who officially stepped down in July 2009.
