Profiles can often be a saving grace—or the tipping point for a tantrum—for an IT department. If you want much more of the benefits and less of the headaches, Ben and James are your go-to guys. They'll explain why profiles are a lot more flexible than people think and examine what the JSS offers when it comes to profiles and payloads, and the difference between Mac and iOS profiles. So, if you've ever been tripped up by not fully understanding how multiple profiles composite the same payload or how execution frequencies work, now is the time to learn from two of the brightest in the industry.
