First off, thanks to everyone who spoke and attended at Macworld. The MacIT sessions were well attended and I heard several positive comments throughout the week. We’d like to hear your comments and feedback on the sessions so we’ve setup an email address for just that. Email us at email@example.com with your likes, dislikes, and what we can do to improve your skill set next year (what you’d like to see).
Already on the topic list is the MacIT Kickoff, which centered around Apple’s support of it’s products (both hardware and software) and opened a dialog between many attendees as to the best way to file bug reports, report hardware issues, and learn about support. Two major items seem to rise above the rest: Apple needs to do a better job of letting IT admins know about support options and IT admins who currently don’t use Bug Reporter should do so.The best attended track was the Imaging and Deployment track, so my thanks go out to the team at MacEnterprise and guest speakers who made that track so compelling.
So let’s hear your comments!Read more›
