Microsoft has launched a Mac community called “Microsoft Mac Admins” to cater to IT professionals managing Apple Mac devices in the enterprise.
Why it matters: The community aims to provide a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing among IT professionals and admins who are passionate about using Microsoft products on Mac devices. It reflects the increasing presence of Macs in the enterprise and the demand for Microsoft’s management solutions on the macOS platform.
- The Mac community by Microsoft is not intended to replace official product support but rather serves as a space for IT professionals to exchange tips, tricks, and experiences related to using Microsoft 365 on Mac devices in the enterprise.
- The growth of Apple’s presence in the enterprise, coupled with the popularity of Macs among employees has led to an increasing demand for Microsoft’s management solutions like Intune and Exchange on the macOS platform.
- The community is open to anyone with a Microsoft 365 account, allowing them to join discussions, ask questions, provide feedback, and access an archive of previous posts and advice related to Microsoft 365 on Mac.
