AFP548 – 2014 Products and Platforms Poll

It’s always helpful to get help from a community of your peers, and our recent survey was an attempt to start having us all check in every once in a while as a group with data about how we maintain and provide management for our customers. Inspired by questions about what ‘server’ to host many of these cross-platform services on, the focus was to capture 1. what products people are using, and 2. what hosts were used to provide those services. Demographic information was optional, but helpful to give some background about the requirements different organizations have when choosing platforms and products(only a handful of folks DIDN’T self-identify with one of the options).The Mac Admin community was pretty well reflected by the poll results, even though it was capped at only 100 responses this time. Please don’t take all of this too seriously, as our sample size is obviously very... | Read more »

AFP548 2014 Product/Platform Poll

As suggested by @nbalonso, I don’t think I’m alone in wanting to know what other folks are using, and how they’re hosting the products they maintain/provide services to the workstations under their purview with. We’re focusing on the Mac for now, as the ‘great reckoning and consolidation’ of the numerous iOS platforms is still ongoing. It’s hopefully quick and painless(and anonymous,) so please do lend us a few moments of your time!HTML Forms powered by Wufoo(Submit button not working on iOS? Please click -> here <-)About Allister BanksAllister is excitable, adept at nerd sniping, and professionally is a Solutions Architect for 318 in downtown NYC (and elsewhere.)

Episode Seven – Perfunctory Munki Mention

A vacation for your ears comes mid-winter as Pepijn Bruienne in thunderstorm-y Michigan returns to join Mac Admin (and new father) Derick Okihara in not-snowy Hawaii. Arek Dreyer and Ben Greisler get a shout-out each, DeployStudio goes down main street in a cab, and we even kick it old-school as MUG’s become a topic of discussion. We barely scratch the surface of the goings on in Dericks world during this half hour, so hopefully you will all enjoy the teaser and convince him to join us again soon.Links:http://www.hmaus.org http://barefeats.com http://deploystudio.com/Home.html https://code.google.com/p/munki/ https://twitter.com/dokihara https://twitter.com/bruienne http://enterprisemac.... | Read more »
