Hell Freezes Over

31 October 2011

Back in May I asked the question whether Apple Mac computers were ready for the enterprise. It seems that the independent technology and market research company Forrester Research feels that not only are Macs ready for the enterprise, but tells IT that “Mac users are your HEROes and you should enable them not hinder them”. The review of the report in CNNMoney shares Forrester’s definition of HERO –  Highly Empowered and Resourceful Operatives — “the 17% of information workers who use new technologies and find innovative ways to be more productive and serve customers more effectively.”

This falls on the heels of news in a ComputerWorld UK article this summer that ITV is embarking on an 18 month plan to transition its 7000 strong workforce to Macs and Google Apps.

Looks like the IT landscape is heading for that long-overdue shake-up.
