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.

We had a medium size fleet of macbook pros that we had deployed and had parallels already installed on them. We looked into a way to standardize and track these devices and started looking into Parallels as a solution to help us with this. Parallels was a good fit due to the fact that most of these machines already had the base system already installed

  • It can be a bit difficult with a large fleet of computers
  • Can be a bit hard to troubleshoot if there are issues
  • There are other tools that are cheaper that do the same thing albeit not as well

We looked at a product called virtual box to do something similar to what we saw from Parallels but it was much more manual for us to deploy out the tool and we would have had to do a lot more work to manage all the systems we have in the fleet
