Macs are invading the enterprise … whether you’re ready or not.
While many organizations traditionally discourage the use of Apple products due to perceptions of higher costs and incompatibilities with the Windows architecture, many feel the tide has turned. In fact, according to Forrester, almost 50% of North American and Western European businesses now issue Macs to their employees.
One of the key drivers of this trend is the consumerization of IT, something Apple’s largely been credited with starting. One doesn’t need to go further than your own office to see this trend in action. Walk down a hallway or visit the lunchroom, and you’ll see people using their own iPhones and iPads to do work. The question you need to ask is – how ready is your business for this consumerization trend?
Does your organization put more energy into the type of technology people use, or on what people do with the technology?
If you’re investing the time and infrastructure in BYOD, then you need to consider supporting Macs to increase employee productivity and satisfaction. However, while consideration is important, the reality is not every company is ready, willing nor able to use Apple technologies.
To make it easier for you to determine if your organization is ready for Apple technologies like Macs, iPads and iPhones, we’ve put together this handy infographic for you to use.
