Consumerization of IT Matrix
There are more than 19 products which support consumerization of IT and also a wide range of scenarios where Microsoft products support various devices. To help us and customers quickly understand all of this, I created an excel spreadsheet (http://aka.ms/coitmatrix) which maps capabilities and Microsoft products to which major computing devices we support across Apple, Google, and Microsoft (i.e. iPad, iPhone, Android slate/phone, Windows Phone, etc).
