Australian agency deploys 1,200 iMacs

Australia’s NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) will deploy 1,200 iMacs across 140 registry offices in what “may well be Apple’s largest coup in the Australian enterprise space.” The Macs will be used as point-of-sale terminals for its counter staff to handle RTA customers transactions across “prepared business applications” as well as for “collecting data and payments and issuing licences, registration certificates and receipts for various transactions,” the article adds. The move away from Wintel systems also appears to reiterate the stand by the NSW government to seek alternatives to wholly proprietary operating system kernels and the licensing models that go with them, Computerworld notes.
