Apple is well on its way to devastating Microsoft

“As I argued when ardent BlackBerry loyalists deluded that IT departments would never allow employees to carry iPhones due to security and integration issues, IT departments hold about zero sway within large corporations,” Rocco Pendola writes for TheStreet.

“No offense if you work in IT, but you’re ultimately a grunt,” Pendola writes. “Executives, as a result of their own and their employees’ desires, tell IT departments what to do. It’s the IT department’s job to get it done; no whining and no questions asked.”

Pendola writes, “We saw it with RIM. We’re seeing it with what I really think will prove to be an exodus away from the unwieldy and unloved MSFT Office and Windows juggernaut.”

  1. MSFT is doing a great job devastating themselves.
    That’s what happens when you live in an echo chamber and start believing your own propaganda.
    All they have left is some very aged momentum, which will probably be sufficient keep them going for a long time as a mere shadow of their former selves.

  2. Who let’s this guy write tech articles? See his twitter feed (hacked?) ? (i’m no one to use twitter either but i’m not a public writer.) He’s a sports blogger, no? The line that got me irritated is “It’s the IT department’s job to get it done; no whining and no questions asked.” — No questions asked, huh? What IT departments do YOU know that don’t ‘ask questions’… ?

  3. I’ve run a Mac department inside a Windows network for years and I hope this happens.

    However for corporate networking Windows is the only game in town and they know it.

    Apple tried with Xserve, MacPro server and server software, but failed.

    Microsoft dominance will fade from the corporate world but only when networking is outsourced to the cloud, effectively outsourcing your IT department.

    Then you’ll be able to have whatever platform you like client side, as all the networking will be abstracted to outsourced services. I know, I’ve seen this happen in a few companies already.
