While the solution is currently deployed on-premises, we have plans to move to the cloud, which is why we plan to go with Intune. We have a partnership with the vendors. While I feel the solution to be fine, better ones do exist, Intunes, for examples, which, features aside, is quite similar. I rate IBM MaaS360 as an eight out of ten.

As far as devices are concerned, this is the world of Bring Your Own Device, and such decisions are left to the end-users. As long as a solution is device agnostic, they can choose the device that they want to use. Keeping the competition in mind, I would rate IBM MaaS360 a nine out of ten.

We are an IBM partner. We are using the latest version of the solution at this time. I'm unsure of the exact version number. We have the service model, which is very useful to us. I'd recommend the solution to other companies. There are similar solutions, however. One might be better at this while another is better at that. In general, I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

We are a customer and end-user. The solution is deployed onto the actual device itself. I wouldn't recommend the solution. We're pretty much working to move off of it. We haven't been too happy with the solution in general. How it was described to us ultimately wasn't how it worked. Overall, I would rate it at a six out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this product is to start by completing the trial as soon as possible so that all of your core issues or core requirements can be identified easily. Next, have all of the integration options kept as secondary because you don't want to do everything together. It's always best to test a few cases; create a test group, and test it on them first. Make sure that everything is working instead of trying to make a turnkey solution. Doing it in phases is more effective than trying to do everything at once. Overall, this is a good product and it covers most of the services that these solutions are supposed to follow, but it's not perfect. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

It's a solid product and it gets the job done. It just needs to be a little bit more updated in the look and feel of it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. It's a good product and just needs to be easier to find things in the portal and move your way around. Having it a bit more explanatory would be helpful.

We have IBM MaaS360 for our iPads, but we are using Microsoft Intune for our laptops and our BYODs. When our licensing expires, we will migrate our iPads from IBM MaaS360 to Microsoft Intune. Considering that we are moving to Microsoft Intune, I should ideally not recommend this solution, but there's no reason to not recommend it for the iPads of your sales force. It is a very standard solution. There is lots of knowledge out there and lots of resources who are experts in the solution. It is not a bad solution to use. If I had just the sales force, using IBM MaaS360 is a great way to manage their iPads. I would rate IBM MaaS360 an eight out of ten.
