We performed a comparison between JamF Pro and VMware Workspace One based on our users’ reviews in four categories. After reading all of the collected data, you can find our conclusion below.
Comparison Results: JamF Pro is a PeerSpot user favorite due to dynamic features such as zero-touch deployment, numerous API integrations, Automated Device Enrollment, and device lost mode retrieval. JamF Pro is easily customizable, easy to deploy, and is an excellent tool for those organizations heavily vested in an Apple ecosystem. The consistently excellent service they provide makes it a solid, reliable solution.
"The self-service is awesome for empowering end-users, especially if you don't allow admin rights."
"Having the ability to automate our workflows has been great."
"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."
"It offers professionals an endless amount of possibilities to keep users and the company happy."
"We have been able to successfully manage applications and inventory within our machines."
"Apple School Manager integration and access to VPP content made the integration of devices into our fleet flawless and application installation much simpler and faster."
"My team use this solution to provide end-to-end support on our managed Mac fleet. This includes doing OS updates and upgrades, application deployments, configuration settings and outlining."
"The ease of use and access allows us to manage all of our devices collaboratively."
"It's a tool that can be managed in various departments."
"If an end-user has an issue with a device, the administration has the ability to remote access the device after approval from the end-user."
"It is like any other mobile solution. It gives us the ability to control remotely, and that is what we like. We can wipe out and deploy remotely."
"We've found the solution to be easy to use."
"We find it to be reliable."
"Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple."
"You can upgrade and migrate the existing group policies that we use for VMware Workspace ONE for the active directory. We can push the policies and group policies. We can migrate it and manage it from VMware Workspace ONE."
"The solution has very good documentation."
"Jamf Pro currently is only used on Mac computers and could improve by having compatibility with other operating systems. We have to use other tools to manage our Windows and Android devices. There could be other improvements but I am still exploring and learning more about the features."
"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."
"The response time for support could be significantly improved."
"I would love to see more integration with ASM and ABM."
"Every once in a blue moon, we wind up with a rarely-seen superbug that takes support weeks to months to solve."
"For Windows, we have a reset option. We'd that option available for Mac."
"I'm not exactly sure where it could be improved off the top of my head, but there is room for improvement."
"There should be an option for exporting the data for reporting purposes so that we can give that to the higher-ups, such as CIO. We should be able to see bar graphs and charts on different data points. It would be great to have a good reporting tool to look at, for example, data points of how many versions of Adobe Acrobat we have in our environment in a bar graph or pie chart. They don't have anything like that. There is an application called Tableau Reader, which does statistics, and you can put a statistical or analytical aspect in there to extract data and share it on a graph or a pie chart. Such a tool would be great."
"Windows 10 management is there, but VMware only recently developed that part, and it's not fully mature. Patch management and other integrations are there as well as the application-pushing part, command line, mandatory commands, etc. Some out-of-the-box solutions should be available to better integrate a broader range of applications and handle application push. That's the roadmap we should look at."
"There should be better compatibility with Linux devices."
"Its performance is quite good on Apple phones or even mid-range phones. If you install an AirWatch on a phone that is not too powerful, you will have performance issues. That's only because the phone is not too powerful, and there is not enough memory, etc. They could do a lighter version for a less powerful phone. It would also be useful for very small companies that don't want to spend money on expensive phones. Having said that, I don't think that is their target market. If their target market is enterprise, all enterprises perhaps have an agreement with Google or Apple, and they would get a phone that has already been tested, and they know that AirWatch will work on that phone."
"We'd like the customization to be better."
"Integration with Microsoft needs improvement. There are some dependencies with Microsoft that aren't 100% yet, for example: compliance synchronization."
"I would like to see more service notifications."
"They need a more flexible pricing model."
"The location service could improve and more integration with other devices, such as Android enterprise and Apple devices."

Reviews from Real Users
Below is some feedback from our PeerSpot users who are currently using the solution:
PeerSpot user Patrick B., Cybersecurity Architect at a tech services company, says, "Its UI is extremely easy to use whether you're an advanced user or a novice user. When I first opened it up and had to learn the product, I was easily a novice. By the end of the third month, I was digging into the backend of the system and using it as a highly advanced user to accomplish what I needed to accomplish, and I was able to do it through the UI mostly."
Roshan T., Partner Manager North America at a tech company, mentions how satisfied he is with the product, saying, "You can put all your applications on a mobile device, be it a phone or tablet. It is secure and easy to use. Because it is centrally managed, you don't have to do any configuration on the phone. I just got the phone and connected to the central applications. I just downloaded one thing and everything got rolled out. Email, calendar, and other things were deployed centrally. If you don't have AirWatch, you have to configure your phone manually. For example, you need to deploy and configure your email manually and then synchronize everything. It is much simpler when a mobile device is centrally managed."
