Air Watch

What do you like best?

I did like that it gave us the ability to manage large amounts of student iPads from a single dashboard. We were able to roll out apps to all users at the same time as well as manage the devices throughout the course of the school day.

What do you dislike?

It seemed hard to use on a small scale that we have -- only 90 students or so versus a larger school or district.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For a smaller operation as we are, it probably had more bells and whistles than we needed which led to more admin issues since we have a small staff.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We did utilize it to manage large amounts of student iPads and roll them out in the beginning of the year.

What Enterprise Mobility Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

AirWatch MDM

What do you like best?

I like the way airwatch handles the mdm for apple products. Paired with Content Locked it is a secure convenient way to track and deliver information to users securely.

What do you dislike?

I dislike all the issues we have had enrolling and managing Windows devices. We have spent a lot of time working with AirWatch getting it to where we wont but there is still some things that need to be done.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking to manage Apple devices I you should have no hesitation. If you're looking to handle Windows devices I would first make sure they can do what you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the issue of tracking devices, managing applications on devices, and distributing information securely to devices.

Good MDM Platform for Academic Setting

What do you like best?

The ability to handle multiple platforms. Our school uses both iPads and Windows laptops. We are a 1:1 device school. With the iPads I use Airwatch to manage applications by grade as well as home screen layout and specific classroom restrictions teachers request.

Support is very responsive.

What do you dislike?

At times I have difficulty finding the steps involved in a particular task I am trying to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are technically challenged then be careful with choosing Airwatch. Although it is fairly intuitive for a technical person, a non-technical person would struggle.

Be sure to identify what functionality you are looking for. Airwatch has a lot of capabilities that we do not use mostly because we were looking for a MDM that could manage multiple operating systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing devices in a 1:1 K-8 school. Managing applications on the devices. Tracking devices when needed. Biggest benefit is the ability to lock a device when a student withdraws from school and does not return the device. Another benefit is the ability to keep track of the iPads via location services. A final benefit is the ability to create user groups and send apps to specific devices.

MDM slow support

What do you like best?

Diversity of managing devices.

Ability to manage devices globally.

cloud based

What do you dislike?

The support services, response is too poor, most of the issues are being blames as not supported by apple.

consols changes so much between updates to a more complicated non user friendly look.

tech support tries to replicate the issues but in production environment.

Tech support almost never respond on the same day or the following one, sometimes it takes up to 5 business days to get a response.

Tech always calls during business hours easter time, witch too easy or too late for any other time zone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The support team isn't up to supporting a strategic partner.

Critical incidents respond is too poor

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

device restrictions.

device tracking and analytics.

application deployment.

Network management.

email integration.

digital material delivery.

usage analytics.

From an endpoint user's view, this program does not do what it says it does.

What do you like best?

That it almost keeps track of 15,000 iPads. Provides nice looking graphs (inaccurate, but nice looking).

What do you dislike?

That the reports don't work, nor do the choice of reports make much sense.

That it only finds/locates missing devices about 5% of the time. (with "Find My iPad" we had a 90% return rate)

That the graphs aren't representative of the actual numbers that are being graphed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Find a competitor and have them demo everything that you want (in your environment) and then compare Airwatch. Make sure they show you how everything works in your environment. Ask them about their reports and about how effective their device location services are.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to keep track of and control about 15,000 iPads in a small 1:1 school district.

We have some control over the iPads. So far our folks have not been able to easily push apps to various groups of students -so we can't assign certain apps to students in certain classes and then remove those apps when they are done with those classes.
