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.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the Patch Management.ManageEngine has improved my organization because right now we can actually monitor and find out which software products are installed on each desktop. We can then figure out which ones have to get patched and so forth.

Cons
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.
