It's no secret that Apple has primarily focused its efforts on product development and marketing strategy on the consumer market. iPhones, iPads, and consumer devices in general, definitely have a place within Apple's customer ecosystem, but it's not reason enough to discount the rising level of Apple devices making their way into the corporate world. Many employees bring their personal Apple devices to work, while other organizations have opened their IT doors to the practice of employee choice. The common denominator is that IT needs surrounding the support and management of Apple devices has continued to rise.
2 years ago, Dimensional Research conducted a survey that came back with an astounding 91% of businesses reported having not only iOS devices in use within their It environment, but also just as many points when it came to measuring Mac users as well. Pretty sure you can derive the root cause for the boost in Apple device adoption in corporate IT to user preference. The same survey also added that 72% of employees offered the option, chose Macs compared to the 28% that took PCs. Among the benefits to employee choice, is the 68% of users who said they felt more productive using the device of their choice. The simple facts remain; using a device that you're familiar with, means a lower level of training and adaptation required. Want to gain more workplace productivity? Give 'em a Mac.
Okay so maybe that's slightly biased, but on the same note, let's take a look at other ways you're going to save some serious $'s ( here are the findings to back it up). What's the next logical step for businesses that have a rising percentage of their workforce using Macs? Simple! You need some systems in place to make sure you can support and manage the devices. In most cases, if you're coming from a traditional windows environment, there's a good chance your in-house IT team's not exactly prepared to do that.
