We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It keeps things secure, it can remotely wipe the container and it's fairly easy to use.We were able to utilize Android for Work-Premium in BlackBerry Android devices.We can access emails within the active sync.It has a good ease of use, and its intuitive.It allows me to be able to access my email when I do not necessarily have my computer with me. I can also access my calendar when I am on public transport or outside of the office.There is very high flexibility for different setups of single users, so it can give a single use many different device types with different enrollment types.The functionality with UEM and BlackBerry Works, the shared calendar, is a massive improvement for us.The containerization of the BlackBerry Dynamics is the most important thing for us. It allows us to keep personal and corporate data separate on a personal device. It allows us to wipe the corporate data while leaving all the personal data in place.

It's a great way to keep track of all of our licenses and the software we use daily.We were able to dramatically enhance our cybersecurity, and better support our users.Users love that instead of having to wait for tickets to be resolved, they can open an app and run a specific policy.As an administrator, I really love the integration with Apple Business Manager.The most valuable features are the Jamf agent and the API.The most valuable feature is the ability to manage all devices through Apple's DEP and forcing them into Jamf pre-stage enrollment.Jamf Pro allowed us to patch and manage endpoints while collecting log data to help improve operational efficiency.

Cons
I'd like there to be more in the core product rather than having to buy additional products. For example, being able to trace your devices after an emergency is an additional product you have to buy to do that properly.It's too difficult to manage ourselves. We have to get a third-party in to do that. The fact that it breaks on some end-users' devices is also a concern and just the frequency and complexity of upgrades is not ideal.Second level support needs to have strong knowledge of the product.The console needs improvement. It does not provide all the information that we are looking for as far as who has installed a certain product.As far as being able to remotely wipe a device, or remove it from the console, this is not simple to do. It is not a one-click motion, as it requires several steps.Some users have complained that some features cannot be done through the BlackBerry Access Hub.The newest features sometimes pop in very slowly.I would like to see better integration with our AD. Instead of having to use Active Directory groups, we'd like to use Active Directory attributes instead. There is a lot of overhead in managing. Whereas, if we could key on something tied to HR, or some other feed indicating who they are or what role they have, and manage them that way, that would be much preferable than having to manage people with Active Directory groups. Because, if people move roles, then we have to make sure that we move them from one Active Directory group to another, which is hands-on, a lot of overhead.

There is still no feature for properly patching T2 Security Chip-enabled Macs.This solution would benefit from more focus on Self Service, such as Office 365 and GSuite integration.If it could do ticketing and non-Apple devices then that would be huge.I would like to have the ability to push scripts using MDM commands.There are known issues with the mobile configs that need to be fixed.I wish there was a profile that could be created for configuring Apple software updates on a global basis for our devices, via a configuration profile.The list of applications for patch management isn't sufficient.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Sometimes, it is very hard to get an overview because there are so many different suites to find out what is the right thing for new customers.In my opinion, we're paying an awful lot for what we get, compared to other vendors. I don't deal with the pricing, but it does seem to be a bit pricey for the things that we get, especially, when you compare them to other vendors, such as VMware, Citrix, who have all bought up other players in this space. VMware offers AirWatch free as part of their packages.With the new licensing model, there seems to be a significant increase in cost, which makes it difficult to push forward and talk with the business.

With respect to pricing, Jamf Pro is the better bet.If you have the in-house capability to support Jamf, then paying for onboarding / JumpStart training is a no brainer.The cost of this solution is expensive but worth it.JumpStart looks a little bit pricey; however, it is worth every penny.The setup cost is in the training, which is the most important step of your journey.
