Surprise! Apple more enterprise savvy than Microsoft, according to experts.
You hear it all the time from IT staff: Apple doesn’t understand enterprise needs, and as more and more users adopt Macs, iPhones, and iPads, you can see the froth emerging from their mouths. Apple changes its decade-old mobile connectors and it’s evil incarnate. Apple releases iOS 6 and IT complains that 60 percent of users adopted it in the first week, before IT could qualify it. Apple releases new Macs and IT is sure users will order them without permission, leaving IT unable again to validate them. Then there are the dangers of iTunes, iCloud, and Bonjour — all designed to destroy IT’s carefully planned information architecture and security model.
