Research Summary:

InformationWeek polled 331 laptop, desktop or mobile device decision-makers and 243 end users to determine how and where Apple gear is being used in the enterprise.  Survey results reveal that iPhones aren't the only Apple devices making inroads; in many cases, OS X gear is riding the coattails of the hugely popular iOS-based devices.

Findings: 

  • 85% of decision-makers report they support iPhones, with an additional 4% planning to do so; 90% currently or plan to support iPads.
  • 87% of those supporting or planning to support Apple smartphones or tablets give the devices high marks for end-user satisfaction, but 45% say the upgradability is poor or very poor.
  • 64% of decision-makers report having no Apple servers in their organizations.
  • 45% say their top gripe with Apple products is the devices are too expensive for the value provided.
  • 23% of decision-makers rate Apple's enterprise security and device management excellent or good; 31% say it's poor or unacceptable.

The report author, Richard Hoffman, is owner of Geomancy Consulting, an InformationWeek contributor and former technology editor for Network Computing.

"Our survey results point to a real opportunity for Apple to gain footing in the enterprise," says Lorna Garey, content director of InformationWeek Reports. "The next six to 18 months will be the real test: Will Apple take the necessary steps to further penetrate this market, or will it remain primarily a creator of consumer-class devices?"
