CMG is well suited for a place that has a lot of traffic where waiting is involved. At my barbershop, while people are waiting for services, having WiFi is ideal. The more folks in the office, the more bandwidth usage. Being able to control how people use the internet is ideal and can help save your company from streaming and buffering issues due to lack of bandwidth.

Jamf [Pro] is great if you have a fleet of Apple Devices that you need to manage, but do not necessarily have the drive/will/time/manpower. Whatever your reason for being hesitant to get started on managing your devices, Jamf [Pro] can make it easier. We used a different MDM before for our lower school, and it took 5 weeks for two people to redeploy the devices before we could even start to clean them physically (read: sanitize because why are the kids always sticky). Now, it is just me, and I could re-deploy all of the devices in a day if I wanted to, but I actually do it over three so as to not overtax the network as it reinstalls all of the apps as I watch... It has been a great time saver, and now, in one week I (just me... I swear to you) I have all of my devices re-deployed and cleaned. I only need to wait on new enrollments to edit the numbers. I will admit Jamf [Pro] is not appropriate in an environment where you rely on that sort of time-consuming busywork to justify your hours, it is a time-saver!

Jamf Pro

  • Jamf Nation - valuable information, tips, tricks and resources to go to when you might have issues. Often times the issue you are facing, isn't something new at all. There are always others who have run into it and can provide valuable insight to resolving. If it is something completely new, you have a plethora of other admins at your disposal who are able to quickly assist you.
  • Integrated patch management - easy to keep your software up to date on devices.

Cons

Meraki Go

  • Number of tunnels.
  • Security.
Pablo Baylac | TrustRadius Reviewer

Jamf Pro

  • KnowledgeBase Articles should be introduced in Jamf Pro.
  • Light and Dark background feature should be included while login to Jamf Pro.
  • Jamf training curriculum need to be revisit specially Jamf 400 Expert exam.
  • Jamf should give the option to download individual device policy logs that will be really help to diagnose the issue.
  • Jamf Reset app is super duper cool but it’s only available only for iOS , likewise we should have Jamf reset app on macOS.

We stepped away and are looking at different products that integrate with our entire fleet MDM solution rather than focusing specifically on Apple products. An all in one solution fits our needs better and is more cost-effective in the long run. Jamf Pro needs to improve some features and support but overall its a good product.

Jamf Pro has done pretty much anything we've needed with little setup headache. If we hit a wall, the Jamf user community and tech support departments both are more than willing to help solve problems. Tech support is excellent, but the surprising thing is the user base is by far the biggest resource. Jamf users love to help each other, by directly chatting about issues, posting best practices, or just posting info on the forums.

We use the free version of Cisco Meraki Go and support is not part of the plan, takes time to reach tech support or sales person to discuss issues and challenges and figure out what discount we can get.

Jamf Support is very responsive and usually assists in any challenge we are tackling. They are also very transparent when they are allowed to be. I personally love our Jamf Pro support rep and don't fear messaging their support team.

Alternatives Considered

Meraki Go

It's cheap, it includes WIFI features, and it's easier to manage than other competitors. Their monitoring dashboard looks great, we can actually measure broadband services remotely and get full visibility of what's going on.

Jamf Pro

Jamf Pro is pretty much in a class by itself. Apple Remote Desktop has a few distinct advantages, however. 1) the ability to execute a unix command on multiple systems and to see the output of those commands in one place on screen; 2) the ability to observe multiple desktops at once 3) it's easier to do quick one-offs to a group of machines or to run commands/programs under a current user context 4) it shows the state of each computer and whether it's logged on.

Return on Investment

Meraki Go

  • Cost Savings
  • Insight
Daniel Garcia-Decoteau, MBA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Jamf Pro

  • The positive impact here would be that the company takes IT seriously, especially when dropping terms like security, protocols, and activity overwatch.
  • A negative impact would be the issues we have with SSO - making logging into Jamf for some users problematic in regard to browser issues.
  • An ROI for Jamf Pro would be that our objectives seem more achievable and realistic with thee use of this tool.
