However, Google has some difficulty managing the increasing number of Macs, as it doesn’t find Apple’s existing enterprise tools useful for its needs. According to Caviness, Apple’s success with iPhone and iPad may have something to do with the slower development of Mac enterprise tools. Unwilling to wait for Apple to deploy the enterprise solutions Google asked for, the company developed its own set of programs or used available ones from third parties to configure, manage and monitor its Mac fleet. Google updated its Macs from OS X 10.7 to 10.8 for 99.5% of its fleet in 8 weeks, and plans to do the same for the move to OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Apple’s most recent OS update.

Interestingly, Google’s chairman Eric Schmidt acknowledged the superiority of Apple’s Macs over PCs in a recent thorough guide for moving from iPhone to Android, actually comparing Android devices with Macs. “Like the people who moved from PCs to Macs and never switched back,” Schmidt wrote on Google+, “you will switch from iPhone to Android and never switch back.”
