JAMF Software, the leader in Apple device management, concluded its global JAMF Nation User Conference (JNUC) drawing more than 900 members of the JAMF Nation community from over 19 countries around the world across the enterprise, education, and government verticals. Held annually, the JNUC is one of the largest conferences solely dedicated to Apple device management.
Each year, hundreds of members of the Apple IT community gather in Minneapolis to share best practices and learn more about emerging trends in the management of Apple technologies. An impressive line-up of speakers from leading organizations including Facebook, Genentech, Salesforce, Adobe and University of Oxford presented over 40 sessions, workshops and panel discussions.
For the first time this year, the company announced the "JAMF Nation Dean’s List" acknowledging the outstanding contributions of JAMF Nation community members. The inaugural list was comprised of the three most active customers on JAMF Nation determined by the number of posts contributed and the number of questions answered for other community members. They are as follows:
- Ben Toms posted 785 times and answered 59 questions in 2013
- Don Montalvo posted 1296 times and answered 35 questions in 2013
- Mike Morales posted 1564 times and answered 178 questions in 2013
On the heels of OS X Mavericks zero-day support, JAMF is continuing to meet the needs of customers and prospects with the introduction of the JAMF Nation Device Reuse Program and Priceless Mobile Device Management (MDM) offering.
Connecting Organizations to Apple, One Device at a Time
