We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There is also zero-day support to all new Apple OS.""We have been able to successfully manage applications and inventory within our machines.""If you want to manage macOS devices in your enterprise and want to make it as easy for the user as well as for the administrators, you should use the DEP with Jamf Pro.""The most valuable features in Jamf Pro are the policies and config profiles, making our life easy to manage many different things in one place.""Navigation is straightforward. It's not hard to create policies and manage the device. It's a lot simpler to create smart groups, view inventory, and see what the estate looks like.""It's a scalable product.""Jamf cut the time it takes to deploy a new machine to a new user.""The self-service is awesome for empowering end-users, especially if you don't allow admin rights."

"I like that there's no maintenance involved.""Office products such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are strong points of this solution.""The initial setup is very straightforward.""The solution comes with many applications as part of the package which is useful.""The most valuable features have been the performance and ease of use.""The integration between the applications is the most valuable. I can share things using my phone, computer, and OneDrive. It is very stable and fast. It is also user-friendly and scalable.""Microsoft 365 Business has an abundance of features.""It is definitely user-friendly, and I like the flexibility."

"I would like to see either a report section or an integration with a new reporting module to allow us to pull real metrics from the system easily.""The reporting with PowerBI could be improved.""It would be amazing if they would give Apple TV management its own space in Jamf Pro and not just mix it in with devices.""The on-going improvements & innovation that Jamf provides over time is something that needs to be maintained, as it is what is needed to fulfill a business & team need at the right time.""For Windows, we have a reset option. We'd that option available for Mac.""It would be nice if Jamf added an onboarding tool integrated into Jamf Connect during the automated DEP enrollment workflow. It would also improve the user experience if Jamf integrated native macOS notifications, with the option to interact within the notification center.""It would be nice if there was a built-in means of renaming computers that worked reliably.""I would love to see more integration with ASM and ABM."

More Jamf Pro Cons →

"It could be cheaper, but I don't know if this is possible.""The solution could improve by allowing more integration.""However, people might think it's unstable if it hasn't been set up correctly. If the IT team hasn't configured it right, then you'll have a hard time using the product itself.""Microsoft 365 could be less expensive.""We are in a medical device space and most of the time we use Microsoft Excel for tracking a lot of information. In certain specific industries, such as aerospace and medical, from the FDA or other regulatory points of view, the solution has to be validated. It would be great if that validation document is provided by Microsoft 365 Business.""The pricing and licensing format could be improved.""Technical support could be a bit better. It's an aspect Microsoft could improve upon.""I would like to see more integration in the next release."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "JumpStart is available at an additional cost."
  • "This is a pricey solution."
  • "The price of a training pass for five people was $18,000 USD."
  • "JumpStart looks a little bit pricey; however, it is worth every penny."
  • "This product is surely worth the cost of implementation."
  • "The cost of any licensing is certainly outweighed by the time saved from manually managing Apple devices."
  • "The price difference between Jamf Pro and VMware Workspace One is not very much, but when counting the cost of my time, Jamf Pro is clearly much better."
  • "Depending on how much support you require, it might make sense to add that to the licensing agreement."
  • More Jamf Pro Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Pricing can vary a lot due to fluctuations in exchange rates and that is not favorable for planning."
  • "Now you can select different licenses, for example, if somebody doesn't need all of the features, it would cost $8 USD per month and if they didn't need the email application then it would cost $6 USD per month."
  • "It works out to be $12.50 per user per month."
  • "Microsoft 365 Business will be good to have if you have a large organization where you have more than 3000 employees. Other cheaper solutions, like Gmail, are easily available in the market."
  • "They are always a bit pricey. They should reduce their prices or make it free because we already have other solutions, like Google Suite, which are cheaper or free."
  • "It is expensive, and its price can be better."
  • "We pay regular licensing fees to continue using Microsoft 365 Business."
  • "It is slightly expensive, but it doesn't have any hidden costs. You know what you're going to spend, and you get a decent ROI on it. It has subscription-based licensing. It helps you to figure out the amount of money that you would spend based on how many mailboxes you would require in a year, which makes it better as compared to a mail server for which you need to consider the licensing cost and the maintenance cost."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:We have been able to keep our tech department lean and mean, maximizing our efficiency by utilizing Jamf to set up our iPads for us, rather than installing each app one at a time.
    Top Answer:Cloud is worth the small increase in price, but make the switch before you need it, and not during a global pandemic.
    Top Answer:Every once in a blue moon, we wind up with a rarely-seen superbug that takes support weeks to months to solve. The good news is that they are rare and not across the platform. Just us.
    Top Answer:An area for improvement would be for Outlook to sync with Google Calendar.
