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

Pros
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.

The feature that we find most valuable is the corporate email pushing.We used to have a system before, Mac OS Open Directory server and this open directory became obsolete because Apple decided to stop the enterprise market, so there was no other alternative for us to use. We chose this to replace the open directory and we found that it has many more features than the previous solution. We totally rely on it right now to manage all the devices on campus.It's all about centralizing your data and making sure that your data is centralized and secure.It seems highly stable and scalable.No issues with scalability.It's all about securing data with the help of the email client called VMware Boxer. It enables the end-user to carry data in their mobile devices but there is containerization between the personal data and the organization's data. It helps enhance their security while still carrying their own BYOD.People who want to adopt this solution may be thinking about it from the end-user's perspective, but this solution is also very friendly for the people who manage it. It's administration-friendly.For me, the integration of AirWatch with various enterprise components is something I like. The way they are partnering with various services, like security services, or some of the big guys like Google, Android, Apple, and including Microsoft; that's really awesome. And the way they look at providing functionality to create self-service and automation, that's really usefully and beneficial. That's where I see they differentiate themselves.

Cons
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.

The mobile device repository is somewhat difficult to manage with a large user base.The solution needs to adapt to the cloud based reality of the current world model. Some customers may have reluctance to this, but it is the next level for all of the big providers. Azure, AWS and Google are all on the forefront of cloud-based solutions.The setup was very difficult. It was not as easy as I had expected.In terms of the inventory management side, as in the invoice management, the stock management and the entire inventory of an organization is lagging a bit in comparison to Blackberry or other EMM solutions.Setup is not too complex.One of the things that I want them to improve on, if possible, is the management of Mac devices, MacBook Pro, for example. They do it, but they have scope for improvement, in my opinion. It's not that it's that bad, it just a small need.The console comes bunched together as a package and inbuilt. Its called Workspace ONE. Whenever we have an issue, we contact the service provider, and instead of a fix, we are just getting the next version of Workspace ONE.The Content Locker cannot inherit permissions for the Windows Public Folder. If they could integrate with Microsoft on this point, it would be the perfect functionality.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

If you purchase it for one year, it is very expensive. If you get it for three years or up to five years, then you can bargain a better price.I think the pricing of the product needs advisement. It would be great to bundle the VM products together. I think the actual box itself should be included in the license. At present, it is not paired with the mobile device.The pricing and licensing are affordable. They are not too high.I have no opinion about the pricing of the product.In terms of pricing, this solution is definitely much more expensive compared to other solutions, like MobileIron or MaaS360 or any other product in the market. This solution is more expensive by 30 or 40 percent.
