Managing Apple Devices in a Windows World

Presented by

About this talk

As Windows support requirements continue to dominate the focus of enterprise endpoint management efforts, an increasing number of Apple device users are becoming frustrated with being treated as second-class citizens. At the heart of the problem are Windows-centric practices and solutions that do not comprehensively translate to supporting Mac and iOS platforms. However, adoption of Apple management point solutions that operate independent of existing Windows administration platforms only add to management complexity and fail to achieve service reliability and cost-effectiveness. Join Steve Brasen, EMA Research Director from analyst firm, Enterprise Management Associates, and Tim Williams, Director Product Marketing at HEAT Software for a one-hour presentation identifying the optimal practices and solutions that will enable comprehensive management of Apple devices side-by-side with Windows endpoints. Key topics of discussion include: •What is the current state of Apple device adoption and use in the enterprise? •What specific Apple requirements are not being serviced by traditional Windows-targeted management solutions? •Which methods should be employed to maintain consistent user experiences across different endpoint architectures? •What effect has increased workforce mobility had on emerging Apple support requirements? •How can enterprise security requirements be maintained across disparate software and hardware ecosystems?
