MINNEAPOLIS – April 6, 2016 – JAMF Software, the leader in Apple device management, today announced dates for its seventh annual JAMF Nation User Conference (JNUC)—the largest gathering of Apple system administrators in the world. This year’s event will be held October 18-20, 2016, at the renowned Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
For six years, Apple IT administrators from around the world have attended the JNUC to discover new and better ways to manage Apple devices with the purpose of empowering people, transforming business processes, and making IT life easier. JNUC 2016 will rally subject matter and product experts to this three-day event of user and community presentations, education sessions, and hands-on training to share experiences and coach attendees on the newest and smartest ways to manage Mac and iOS in schools and businesses of all sizes.
“Having attended JNUC for the first time last year, I’ve never left a conference more energized and inspired,” said Dean Hager, CEO, JAMF Software. “The JNUC gives Apple IT admins the opportunity to come together to share, learn, and go back to their respective businesses and schools with actionable information to make their Apple implementations more successful.”
