What Are Your 2010 Mac Management Plans?

By: Absolute Team | 12/15/2009

The Enterprise Desktop Alliance today opened a new survey to query IT administrators about their plans to support the Mac in their Windows-centric IT environments. The results of the survey will provide an update to the Enterprise Desktop Alliance’s 2008 survey which reported:

  • 90% of whom stated that integration with Windows was important to their organization
  • Active Directory integration was the number one issue for Mac integration in a Windows-managed environment.
  • 74% of the respondents expected to increase the number of Macs in their organization.

Results of the original Survey, “Administrators Speak Out About Managing the Mac in a Windows Infrastructure,” conducted in December 2008 are available on the Enterprise Desktop Alliance website.

The current survey looks back to whether those plans were realized and goes into greater depth on the priorities of those tasked with managing Macs in a Windows oriented IT infrastructure.

IT administrators are encouraged to contribute to the survey at Enterprise Desktop Alliance 2009 Survey.
