Walmart plans to deploy 100,000 Macs to save on employee PC costs

AppleInsider:

As the world’s largest retailer, Walmart is known for its “Everyday Low Prices” slogan. It’s now in the planning stages of rolling out an employee Mac choice’ program in an effort to save costs long term while enhancing the productivity of its employees using premium Apple hardware.

Walmart outlined its Mac choice program at this week’s Jamf Nation User Conference, the largest Apple-focused IT event in the world, now being held near Jamf’s headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This is another in a line of these kinds of stories and a direct result of the work Apple and IBM have been doing in the enterprise market.

    I remember the days when this would be huge news. It’s amazing that these days it’s a “that’s nice” story.

      These days, I kinda get concerned if I don’t hear a story like this every few months.

    A hundred thousand Macs. That’s not a small number even at Apple’s scale. And there will be positive ripple effects. Add IBM, GE… this is quite a movement we’re seeing.
