In today’s world technology plays an integral role in our everyday lives. With this in mind it is important to realize that educational institutions can only truly leverage technological benefits through a simple and effective management system. To clarify, a platform that equips IT professionals and educators to provide an enhanced learning experience is what determines the effectiveness of an MDM. However, the selection of an MDM should take into consideration more than just simplicity. For example, security is equally important. In view of this, it must be remembered that security & Privacy are part of the three pillars in Jamf’s platform. With particular attention to these points Paoma assists schools in sourcing and implementing appropriate and secure tools that will significantly improve end user productivity.

In conclusion, through Jamf, Paoma, together with forward thinking schools ensure the most important aspect of using technology in education is not diluted.
