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

Pros
The most valuable feature is that you can manage users from one central location.The most valuable feature is the performance.Although we have not looked at the whole product and explored it completely, we find that all the authentication features that we are using now are valuable.The Cloud Identity is well advanced in terms of features, applications, and the components that it is offering.The main control page and the ability to manage all our users from a web-based portal are the most valuable aspects of the solution. That's particularly useful because we're a heterogeneous network.

The most valuable feature is the ability to manage all devices through Apple's DEP and forcing them into Jamf pre-stage enrollment.The Smart Groups have been very beneficial for quick reporting when a critical, out of cycle patch is required.The most valuable features are the restrictions, Lost Mode, Self Service, and full implementation of anything Apple will let MDM manage.The time that we save in hours for new deployments, redeployments, application upgrades and OS upgrades more than makes up for the cost of the product.Automating the refresh of the devices is huge for both sides of the end-user experience.The Self Service feature, which allows us to make apps available to our staff and students was essential.The design of the GUI, as compared to other solutions, really makes a difference.Policies are a great feature that allows us to push certain restrictions to devices that require them, such as the younger generation of students we have.

Cons
In the next release, I would like to see integration with different systems, mainly wireless SIEMS and other analytical systems that we want to introduce.The pricing for this solution is a little bit higher than AWS and others, which is something that should be improved.To improve the product, the integration with third-party products could always be smoother.The interface could be improved by simplifying it further.The solution needs to better integrate with Mac's OS.

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.I can only say that I would love to see a more customizable dashboard.Technical support is in need of improvement.Jamf doesn't make the Cloud file system visible so there are rare occasions where the local repository and Cloud repository get out of sync.Some improvement can be made in the customer service realm, while also making additional training level courses available for online study and exam-taking.I would like to be able to see what policies and configuration profiles are tied to what Smart/Static groups.I would love to see an integrated ticketing system built-in, better reporting templates to help analyze the data (software usage, etc.), and integration with FREE SSL Cert (letsencrypt.org) with auto-renewal.An in-house chat room would be a great way to communicate with your team when you aren't physically present with them.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The fees are paid monthly and there are no additional costs other than the licensing fees.The product is billed on a monthly basis depending on the number of users.Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.We probably spend about $50,000 a year on licensing.

Don’t go into a sales call without knowing all the details of your system because Jamf has a ton of tools outside of Jamf Pro to offer and knowing them ahead of time is a must.I know that as a school we get a discounted price, which is good because without it we would not be able to afford it.The cost of Jamf is certainly worth the investment.Licensing cost is dependent on the footprint and foreseen growth.Setup and licensing prices are getting to be too high.The setup is pricey upfront for support and setup.The total ROI is worth every penny.With respect to pricing, Jamf Pro is the better bet.
