For Infrastructure & Operations Professionals

Navigating Diversity In Operating Systems And Browsers

Heterogeneity Is Here — And Mobility Is Driving It Further

Why Read This Report

Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals face a splintered landscape of operating systems (OSes) and browsers, which complicates investment decisions tied to what they deploy and support for employees. While Microsoft Windows remains a critical player in the enterprise, it's now joined by a variety of tablet and smartphone OSes like Apple's iOS and Google's Android. At the same time, the browser war is more competitive and contested than ever, with Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE), Google's Chrome, Mozilla's Firefox, and Apple's Safari all staking out claims for relevance and usage. For both OSes and browsers, bring-your-own (BYO) behavior has undercut IT's traditional role in dictating user choices. Facing this complex landscape, I&O professionals should benchmark themselves against the enterprise market to understand where they stand on OSes and browsers. Doing so will help drive support decisions and application development. This report offers data and insights on OS and browser usage and trends and best practices on what you can do with this information.
