Would iBooks be an exception to 'Can push documents?'

Your rating: None

Would ePub/PDFs/iBooks be considered 'documents', since they live in the iBooks app, now that JAMF can push notifications for them? Not sure how to best put the asterisk and point out that one exception, although iBooks itself isn't included in a stock iOS device.

Install Paid Apps with VPP Codes

Your rating: None

Install Paid Apps with VPP Codes - MDM should read: Somewhat.

You can't push out apps OTA. You can send a web clip with a Redeem Code/URL but then the app is owned by the user not the VPP account.

You can, and VPP codes can be redeemed entirely transparent to the user as of iOS 5.

The current Apple ID in use on the device then owns the app.

Corporate Signed Apps

Your rating: None

We can push apps to the device and this works a treat. However some organisations (bigger ones especially) have their own internal corporate "AppStore" where by they have an Enterprise Developers Account, they create applications internally for iOS and it's signed by themselves - so it's not part of the AppStore, but it organisations to push their own Apps out to their users.

Can this tool be used for that as well?

Thanks,
Best regards,
Amit

Configurator can load them,

Your rating: None

Configurator can load them, but keep in mind it only works via USB. So you can't push out updates OTA, which especially for enterprise apps is a concern since they expire every 12 months.

Having been forced to use configurator - i cant believe people are opting to use this by CHOICE! I had nothing but a long, terrible nightmare that only ended when i was given the OK to research MDM's.

I feel like im missing something LOL

Needs updating

Your rating: None

MDM has been able to do everything on the list for quite a while.

You almost need 3 columns for MDM - User-enrolled, DEP w/o supervision (although god knows why you would do this), and DEP W/supervision.

MDM with DEP supervised devices is basically the default mode of operation for everything company owned these days.
