Survey finds Mac integration a business priority

Mac integration survey

Integrating Macs is now a priority for many businesses, but comes with its own set of problems, claims GroupLogic. The developer recently conducted a survey to look at the integration of Macs into predominantly Windows-based enterprises. Conducted with the help of eMedia USA, the study polled nearly 350 IT professionals in a range of public, private and non-profit organizations. Of those surveyed, 40 percent said that achieving balance between Macs and Windows in IT service delivery was a business goal; approximately 70 percent of the respondents reported having Macs in their organization, while another 6 percent said they plan to integrate Macs in the near future.

The most crucial integration issues identified by the survey include adapting Active Directory policy to support Macs (38 percent), help desk calls from Mac users (35 percent), compatibility and/or data corruption issues (27 percent), a lack of IT/filenaming policy enforcement tools (25 percent), and finally, maintaining a "Mac experience" for end-users (24 percent).
