Pros

Pros

Jamf Pro has been reliable and a great Apple management solution for us. We are assured that any Mac coming in the door will be managed and managed reliably.
I implemented Jamf pro blind, relying on the support team and good old documentation to help me out. The support team was fantastic and also teached me how to accomplish various tasks on the platform.
Super easy to use, makes Apple TV deployment super easy. The integration with DEP and all that fun stuff is pretty awesome.

Cons

Cons

It actually makes my work processes super inefficient, because i'm constantly batting weird errors and frustrating password resets.
I'm in education so they're not making any money off is (given the high level of support everyone receives). There are no tiers of service, no packages for support, and no BS.
The interface can become confusing and overwhelming to novice user.

Overly complicated for our needs

Reviewed 4 years ago

We started using Jamf to maintain the 50 Macs at our school. However, it's so complex and time-consuming to work with that we've pretty much abandoned it. We were spending so much time creating and updating packages and policies that we've found it quicker to just send techs to the machines to make changes in most cases. If we had several hundred then it would be a different story but it's just not a great fit for us.

Pros

Jamf allows you to control your organization's Macs in a similar way to how Group Policy allows you to control PCs. As long as you're very proficient with scripting for Macs then it's a powerful tool. The user community, Jamf Nation, is also extremely helpful in getting things working.

Cons

It's overly complicated for organizations that don't have hundreds of Macs to maintain. Doing anything beyond the absolute basics requires a lot of research and trial and error.

I've been a huge fan of Jamf since we started using it about five years ago!

Reviewed 6 years ago

Ease of management for laptops and iPads, amazing product support when issues arise, and even though I'm not the money guy it appears to be well worth what we do pay and includes tiered levels so that as we increase the number of devices in our district we pay a little less per unit. I also love JNUC as an educational and networking resource.

Pros

It's terrifically easy to use. The absolute best thing about it, however, is that other people think I'm a wizard at how quickly they get results when they need something. They can literally request an app and in most cases have it assigned within less than 2 minutes of me getting notification.

Cons

The Java component. I know it's necessary for some reason or another, but java has been an absolute terror for us in the district for various reasons (not all related to Jamf). That said, yesterday our java version on the JSS server updated all by itself and things went south very quickly. A quick support chat session with Jamf and we were back up and running after reverting to the old java.

Jamf Review

Reviewed 3 years ago

Jamf is everything I hoped it would be, and much, much more. I always highly recommend it to anyone who works with Macs.

Pros

I love that Jamf handles everything Mac related from pre-stage deployment to pushing updates to reporting. Jamf has simplified everything that I do in my job & I rarely have to touch machines anymore. I love that we were able to implement a system to get machines from pre-stage to named, bound to AD & authenticated with 802.1x in a matter or 2 minutes, that is my absolute favorite thing as even doing it by manually I had issue - but I don't anymore.

Cons

There is nothing I don't like, a couple of features I'd love to see implemented but Jamf continues to listen to their customers & update features all the time. We did have a bit of a time getting it to work in our environment with the restrictions on our network & the fact we cannot sync with LDAP, but we figured it out during training & it was no fault of Jamf.

Best MDM we've used, and the price is just right!

Reviewed 6 years ago

Automation, reduced workload, more chances to be Proactive versus reactive, valuable work experience.

Pros

What we can do is near limitless. The automation is something we are still working on, but for a business thats entering the enterprise world, this is an absolute must before things get out of hand. We started using Jamf while we were still only 300+ employees, and now we are coming up on 700, and having the data on all our macs in one spot is awesome. Now that we can make the worry of deployments a thing of the past, it gives me time to work on being PROACTIVE, versus REACTIVE.

Cons

Because the software can do so much, I'm sometimes surprised at the things it can't do. Example. when Prestages get changed from one MDM server to another on accident, you lose your entire scope. Luckily, the customer service is great, and we were able to recover data. Just a shame that it lost the data in the first place. and that I couldn't recover it on my own with built in methods.
