Enterprises Probably Have to Support Macs

Forrester Research last week recommended corporate IT departments let workers use Macs on their networks because these employees are more likely to be power users, the ones working longer hours, being more productive and making more money.Forrester Research analyst David Johnson says "it's time to repeal prohibition and take decisive action" and support Mac PCs in enterprises. Forrester says enterprises have t support Macs

"Mac users are your HEROes and you should enable them not hinder them," he says. Forrester uses the acronym HERO for Highly Empowered and Resourceful Operatives, what it finds are "the 17 percent of information workers who use new technologies and find innovative ways to be more productive and serve customers more effectively."

One might say that enterprises lost the battle decisively with the advent of the iPad, which is a tool enterprise workers are demanding and using in growing numbers.

The iPad once viewed as simply a consumer device for media consumption is gaining traction at the enterprise level. Some of the largest companies in the world already use or plan to use the device as an enterprise tool. The rate of enterprise adoption in Fortune 100 companies is reported to be 65 percent according the Wall Street Journal and 80 percent according to Network World. High enterprise iPad adoption
