Putting the Mac to Work in a PC Shop
"Apple's growth in popularity among consumers is driving a trend to bring the Mac from the home into the office. However, cash- and personnel-strapped IT teams are finding it difficult to deploy and manage cross-platform environments in a streamlined, effective manner."
"Macs have started to appear next to the Microsoft brethren in the offices of companies ranging from financial institutions to law firms. Some number only a few, while other work environments are filled with half or more of all its computers sporting Apple's rather than Microsoft's logo."
"IT is now facing the idea that it needs to support what the workers are using," Lubos Parobek, Kace's vice president of product management, told MacNewsWorld."
