In early May 2016 Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple Rocks the Enterprise Market with New SAP Partnership to Revolutionize Work on the iPhone & iPad." In early May 2019 we posted a follow-up report titled "Apple's Partnership with SAP Expands to cover Mobile Business Applications using Apple's Machine-Learning Technology." Over the past several years Apple has made a huge push into the Enterprise with partnerships with IBM, SAP, Deloitte, Accenture, GE, HP and others.
While we usually don't get feedback as to how well these partnerships are actually panning out, yesterday we did receive positive news unofficially from SAP. Martin Lang, VP SAP IT Services Enterprise Mobility Tweeted the success of the Apple/SAP partnership.
According to Lang, "The number of SAP colleagues who chose a Mac as their primary computer has doubled over the last 15 months, it's at almost 26K now with 82% of them running the latest macOS Catalina."

That's the type of feedback we'd like to hear from all of Apple's partners and perhaps Lang has led the way as how to get the success rates out to the public without it being an official press release. Let's hope it's the beginning of a new trend. Below is the SAP chart enlarged. Total active Macs is noted as 25,799.
Lang listed Apple Must as the first to cover SAP's statistics.
