Microsoft and MacTech Offer Up The Experts


New MacTech Column: Integrating Mac Into Enterprise
– MacTech’s team is working with Microsoft to provide “how-to” articles
– Column addresses real world issues facing integrating Mac into Enterprise

January 10, 2006 — MACWORLD EXPO and WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA — MacTech today
announced a new column to specifically address integrating the Mac into
Enterprise-class networks. The column will debut in the April 2006 issue.

MacTech has a long history of columns that integrate the vast knowledge of
top tech support teams and field engineers, including the Symantec Top 10,
Metrowerks: From the Factory Floor, and Apple’s Inside Info.

MacTech’s team is working with Microsoft to provide real world, how-to
information and tips about integrating the Mac into Enterprise
environments. The column will address issues that face administrators and
IT Pros every day such as Macs working with Exchange Servers, Active
Directory, security issues, platform integration, document compatibility
and much more.

“Most business environments today are using Microsoft technology, and Macs
need to be able to integrate into these setups. Microsoft’s technical teams
and field engineers have an incredible knowledge base,” said Neil Ticktin,
Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, MacTech Magazine. “We’re excited about the
prospect of combining MacTech’s how-to approach with tried and true methods
that these experts have created.”

“The people who work in the Mac BU are die-hard Mac users with a lot of
experience working in a cross-platform environment. We delivered several
enterprise-focused improvements in 2005, including Service Pack 2 (SP2)
with enhanced Exchange Server functionality.” said Sheridan Jones, lead
marketing manager, Microsoft’s Macintosh Business Unit. “Our team is
looking forward to working with MacTech, the Mac industry’s established
publication for Mac technical information, to provide IT administrators
with the information they need to best take advantage of these improvements
so that our users can have the best experience possible.”

MacTech and Microsoft are currently seeking feedback from readers on future
topics for the column. For those attending Macworld Expo in San Francisco
