U.S. CIOs see Apple taking more enterprise business

“A recent survey of chief information officers found that 46% expect Apple products to become more pervasive in the enterprise market in 2016,” Patrick Seitz reports for Investor’s Business Daily. “That is more than twice the number of those who expect Apple products to become less pervasive.”

“‘Apple’s enterprise momentum seems set to continue,’ Nomura Securities analyst Jeffrey Kvaal said in a report Friday.

    1. It works beautifully..and, I dare say, better than on windows. We use it extensively and have dedicated MacBook airs for people on call. All of the issues I’ve had to deal with were on win 7 machines..never the macs. Citrix developers are heavy Mac users. Citrix was on iOS for iPad the first week the iPad was available.

      I work in a traditional pc centric enterprise environment. While I’m certain I have all but one of the macs here, we all have iPhones provided and management has iPads. It is nice to see.
