Brace Yourself, IT: Apple Making Comeback into Enterprise Wild

Loraine Lawson

I confess: I grew up with MacIntosh computers and, frankly, I do love them. Ultimately, it was the Internet and my move to technology journalism that pried the Mac from my hands.


Once PhotoShop and other media software migrated to the Windows platform, I switched my home computer to a Windows-based PC. Later, when I learned Apple's total enterprise market share had slipped to just 2 percent, I waited for the bell to toll for my computer alma mater.


But it seems you just can't keep a good Mac down. Last week, fellow IT Business Edge blogger Arthur Cole wrote about how Macs are slowly but steadily being reintroduced into the enterprise. Cole reports that Apple's enterprise market share is now at 8 percent to 10 percent. A more recent report confirms this trend. Computerworld says the Mac OS X market grew 32 percent in one year.


So, tech support and net admin, consider yourself put on notice: Macs are finding their way in. Give yourself a head start by checking out Cole's post about integrating Macs into the enterprise.
