  1. Hi, I want to convince my employer to introduce Macs at work. I have there arguments. In short: Macs make users more productive because: easier and more intuitive to use than Windows less clicks to get to the target far fewer annoyances Diversifying cyber risk most malware is OS specific i.e. most runs only on Windows we can diversify cyber risk by having a portion of computers being Macs Macs have lower TCO (total cost of ownership) than Windows PCs lower support calls higher residual value (http://www.cio.com/article/3133945/hardware/ibm-says-macs-save-up-to-543-per-user.html) and (http://www.businessinsider.com/an-ibm-it-guy-macs-are-300-cheaper-to-own-than-windows-2016-10) Monopolies (Microsoft Windows) in enterprise always mean high costs Better employee engagement users can use the tools they are most comfortable with driver for employee engagement - up 10% you at IBM (http://www.computerworld.com/article/3131906/apple-mac/ibm-says-macs-are-even-cheaper-to-run-than-it-thought.html) I am preparing a presentation to our corporate development/strategy department and HR. I was wondering if you had any additional arguments, success stories (besides the one at IBM where they have 100,000 Macs deployed) or tips for me. Kind regards Sebastian

    Convincing employer to introduce Macs at work

    There is no particular reason beyond that it has always been Windows, like for many large corporates. I suppose that there is some software where no macOS version is available (SAP from what I understand does not run on macOS) but no all people have to use this software. I held the presentation yesterday. It went quite well. The person uses Macs at home as well and understands my arguments. So not the question is how do we take it from here. I suppose trying to get IT involved at this early stage is not helpful. After all, they could have initiated something like that themselves. So we will probably approach it from the HR perspective.
