Macs replacing PCs across enterprise at ‘unprecedented rate', survey claims

From Computerworld.com

"Apple is on the cusp of gaining the kind of market command it has not held in over 20 years, with 67% of enterprise IT professionals believing the Mac will 'cut into PC share over the next three years', according to a JAMF Software survey.

An IDC chart confirms that Mac market share has already regained the market position it last enjoyed in 1995, climbing to 8% of the overall market on significantly higher unit sales. Meanwhile, as the PC market overall contracts, Apple’s overall share continues to climb. Ironically, it appears enterprise sales will drive Cupertino forward even as alternative platforms fade into the background.

JAMF Software’s second annual global survey of IT pros shows Macs, iPhones and iPads are seeing rapidly increasing adoption among enterprise users. Nearly all enterprise IT professionals say that their internal teams support Mac (96%), iPad (81%) and iPhone (84%).

Enterprises are being driven to the platforms in their search to boost productivity, build employee engagement with digital business processes and cut costs. (It isn’t just IBM that sees a $270 per employee cost reduction in using Macs rather than PCs.) IT pros also agree that Macs (75%) and iOS devices (82%) offer more security compared to other platforms and user/employee preference continues to drive adoption of both platforms.”
