When it was announced that enterprise applications could be developed for the iPhone, it left me to ponder the question that's been asked many times over the years:\u00a0will Apple really\u00a0turn a corner and\u00a0become more business-friendly? Anecdotally, I think we\u2019re heading in that direction. Specifically, three things have convinced me of this:I spoke with a COO last week of a small consulting firm who told me that she was switching her entire user-base from a Windows (PC) environment to Macs for better collaboration, fewer bugs, and lower maintenance costs. She also said she\u2019d consider iPhone deployments if users wanted them.Second, from Apple\u2019s end, its Mac pro and X-Serve upgrades in January were viewed as important to businesses, though as the linked text informs you, it was bound to be overshadowed by the Macbook Air announcement a week later. Lastly, in our coverage of the consumerization of IT, we see users calling upon their CIOs to let them use technologies that they\u2019ve\u00a0had at home or even grown up with. Macs, from both a hardware and software perspective, have been prevalent on college campuses for quite some time. As these people hit the workforce (and, actually, they already have), CIOs will have to explain the value on an all-PC environment with greater specificity than "Macs are not for business."\u00a0Some forward-thinking CIOs, like Douglas Merrill of Google for instance, let users pick whether they want a Mac or PC.I\u2019m by no means\u00a0an\u00a0Mac\u00a0guru (I use Windows at work and Linux, the Ubuntu distribution, at home), but I\u2019d be curious to know from\u00a0any enterprise IT departments\u00a0if they\u2019ve considered moving over to Mac recently, and for what reasons. Feel free to e-mail me as I\u2019m pursuing a couple stories around this topic. Or, as always, sound off below.
