The Jammies Awards Celebration at JNUC 2021

Did you feel the passion? Did you experience the excitement? There was a lot to celebrate at JNUC this year! And possibly my favorite (outside of when Dean spoke about the MATTER Innovation Hubs) was The Jammies, an awards ceremony that celebrates Jamf’s most passionate, engaged, creative and thoughtful customers.

We recognize our success comes from the success of our great Jamf Nation, which is why we’re incredibly proud of the accomplishments of each of this year’s winners. To each of you, thank you for all you do to support Jamf, each other and your end users. It’s a privilege to work with you, and we’re honored to recognize you at JNUC 2021. Congratulations!
