    Ok, I have been a long time Mac and Windows user.

    I wonder what professional level software are Apple project managers, controllers for different departments, etc...

    What is it that this large corporation uses daily to run their business?

    Accounting?
    Project Management / Time Management?
    Job Costing?
    Asset Management?


    What about the retail end? Inventory? Order Management?


    I am aware of Timberline and SAP options, but what does Apple do?

    Don't we all love Paint.


    Nobody has any real ideas? I appreciate no one making stuff up.

    The iMacs in the stores use a custom built front end that ties into Filemaker, so I guess they use that in some capacity for inventory management, although we also know Apple use a lot of Solaris servers for their main databases (Sun said as much). Can't speak for the other apps though.

    Filemaker

    I think Apple have finished re-puchasing FileMaker in a round about, non-direct way. So I would imagine thay use Filemaker for most things.

    The early talk about spinning off Claris turned out to be just that. They've quietly held onto Filemaker all along :)
