Re: Care to name the company?
It was an insurance company, so very very conservative. The overall policy was "MS everywhere". So Windows Server backends, running IIS/SQL Server, and Windows XP then 7 on the desktops. At no point was non-MS infrastructure allowed.
When the mobile platform emerged, it HAD to be MS. No iPhones. No Android (the irony being, or course that for our customers, all platforms were supported).
Right up till MS scrapped the mobile platform. At which point, there was a scramble for all the BYOD research I had done that had been ignored, and a very costly rushed install of a management suite.
Part of the problem was the overall estate was so large, that MS - like drug dealers - were able to keep the prices just this side of looking reasonable.
