Jamf Software, LLC
Jamf is user-friendly and easy to set up. It allows Ipads to be managed in easy-to-understand groupings. It also allows teachers to take ownership of choosing and distributing apps. The safety features for students allow restricting of websites, apps, and even clearing some of the "clutter" of built-in IOS apps that you don't want on students screens such as news and measuring apps. I really enjoy using this product.

Lumen Technologies (formerly CenturyLink)
CenturyLink Private Cloud is well suited for companies that are smaller and wouldn't have to undergo scaling for a longer time. Apart from that, it does well in almost all categories. It wouldn't actually be useful for bigger companies since the UI is a bit laggy sometimes and usually, it's not advisable for big companies.

  • UI can be really improved, since it sometimes lags a lot
  • Very few know about the product, so they should advertise a bit more
  • There maybe scaling issues since it's a relatively smaller company compared to its competitors

We originally tried an MDM from Cisco and it did not deliver in useability or features like Jamf

It doesn't stack up that well against them, since these are big companies and have huge infrastructures and they provide smooth scaling features. However CenturyLink Private Cloud is a little concise and not many people know about it, so I feel like they should advertise more and try to improve their customer outreach.

Lumen Technologies (formerly CenturyLink)
  • We reduced our cloud hosting costs a lot after switching to CenturyLink Private Cloud
  • Maintenance is very easy since there is documentation available for every part
  • It had some issues with the UI but we can neglect those considering the pricing options they provide.
