The Department of Veterans Affairs is taking another step toward the deployment of tablet computers to its workforce. VA has sent a request for information to industry in the hopes of buying a mobile device management platform that will let it secure and manage tens of thousands of tablets across the enterprise. The plans call for a deployment of 10,000 tablets running Apple's iOS, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows Mobile to start. They plan to eventually increase that to up to 100,000 tablets.
