MacIT: App Deployment Strategies for iOS
IT813: App Deployment Strategies for iOS
Derick Okihara, IT Technician, Mid-Pacific Institute
Apple makes beautiful hardware, but it's the software that really makes devices like iPhones and iPads so popular. With over 700,000 apps available, how do we get these apps on to a user's device in a manageable fashion? This session will cover the different app ownership models, volume purchasing, and several different app deployment strategies with both Apple and third party solutions. At our organization, we deployed applications to 1600 iPads, and this session will cover exactly how we did it without breaking a sweat. Some of the tools we'll cover include iTunes, Apple Configurator, OS X Server's Profile Manager, and also the third party tool JAMF's Casper Suite. With these deployment strategies in hand, you'll still have time left over to play Angry Birds.
