Laptops and tablets are beginning to be more popular than the classic old PC and this is why people stopped buying PCs. Even business companies stopped using the normal PC. IBM uses Macs now because they believe that they are cheaper and better than any PC.
In the last four year the fact that IMB uses Macs saved the company more than $530.00 for every device.
Now more than 90,000 people who work at IMB use Macs and everybody is pleased. The employees like the design and performance of Macs and the company like to save up the money.
In the last year, more than 60,000 employees started using Macs in IBM. By the end of 2016, more than 100,000 people that work for IBM are going to have a Mac.
“Not only has the company been saving between $264-$535 for each Mac deployment over four years, but just 3.5 percent of employees using a Mac will call the company help desk. Give employees the devices they want, manage those devices in a modern way, and drive self-sufficiency in the environment,” said IBM’s VP.
Up until IBM made the deal with Apple to start using Macs, in companies, there were PCs made by Microsoft. The whole business market was cornered by Microsoft. Now the leader is going to be Apple soon enough with the Macs he produces.
What made Apple become so popular in the business world?
In 2014 Apple and IBM made a deal and they became partners. This means that IBM is going to buy laptops and other devices from Apple and only Apple because the partnership is exclusive.
Also, because the deal goes both ways, IBM is going to develop apps for iPads and iPhones. This deal was made in order to make IBM sell iPads and iPhones that have solutions to businesses. Let’s hope that IBM and Apple have a long lasting partnership from which they can both benefit.
Despite the fact that the PC market is declining, the fact that IBM uses Macs is a great development for the old boring PC that we are all used to.
