Pros: Can't stress enough how Parallels helps my company get our job done, since it helps us test our websites and applications on Windows in a easy way.

Cons: Maybe it could be simpler to use and less intrusive from the get go, since it creates desktop shortcuts and assumes that I want to have each windows app as a new window on Mac.

Great experience and its easy to understand

Pros: I like the pure easy of use of this piece of software and how convenient it is to switch from windows back to mac os.

Cons: I would say what I like least about the software program is the inability to run on more operating systems at the same time instead of just one.

Quick, easy, access to windows applications in an equally simple Installation

Pros: I have been an avid user of iParallels 11 and just upgraded to version 13. For the past couple years I have had no issues with running the windows operating system, products and applications side by side with OS sierra. The product makes working in both environments nearly seamless. For those who love added extras, version 13 comes with several tools for the MAC that are useful for various screen capture, video capture, audio capture purposes. Tons of neat tools and a great option for running a windows environment on a mac. A double-win.

Cons: It is difficult to find something to not like about this software. It's takes a minimal amount of space and works great. Sometimes, while using version 11, and Mac OS Sierra, I would lose cohesiveness and be kicked into window mode.

Overall: Ability to continue using windows tools that I have used regularlyin windows environments while working with a more reliable Mac Computer.

Parallels is great, easy to use software.

Pros: What I like most about it is that every thing is laid out and easy to find. Setup is a breeze and it is very easy to setup Windows from just about anywhere.

Cons: If you have a business account, it can be one thing that you might not like about using Parallels. It can be a little tricky to setup when someone else purchases it.

Overall: Having both Windows and Mac on one computer.

Very basic and hastily written solution.

Pros: There isn't much it provides in terms of Managing Macs the same way other MDM providers do. I guess it works with SCCM, is probably the only thing good about it.

Cons: Not even close to an actual MDM for Managing Macs in mid to large enterprises. Update frequency is slow and not as frequent as Apple updates it's OS and software. Leaves much to be desired.

Overall: None to speak of. It's very incomplete.

Parallels for the Mac is a mandatory application for productivity

Pros: You can boot windows or Mac. Or, you can run a virtual machine in Coherence mode. This creates a lot of utility for the user.

Cons: It can be difficult to migrate a boot disk on Mac. However, this isn't really a problem with Parallels so much as a wish for easier functionality around creating a bootcamp disk.

Overall: Ability to create multiple virtual machines on a single piece of hardware. There is also the very useful feature of running Coherence mode with two operating systems running concurrently.
