Today, the vast majority of organisations manage complex application environments: SaaS applications, and apps hosted on-premises, at remote data centers, and in private clouds. This is highly inefficient and costly in lost productivity. It is also risky: a broken access management solution means that access policies are stale.
Provisioning access to new users, deprovisioning access to users that have left the organisation, deploying new applications, ensuring access is secure, enabling Multi-Factor Authentication for your applications - all of this creates a substantial workload for administrative staff. Meanwhile, employees encounter challenges as they attempt to access a large portfolio of corporate applications from a range of locations and devices.
In my presentation I will talk about how to solve these problems with identity driven user management.
A BLAST FROM THE PAST
Charles Edge, US.
Knowing how we got here shows us the future of where we’re going. The more things change, the more they stay the same. What Apple device management options did we have in 1985? How have those evolved over the years?
What words did we use in a land far, far away? What words do we use today? What factors have caused us to go from the old ways to the new ways? What might trends from the past 30+ years tell us about what to expect next and how to plan our deployments to be a little future-proofed so we don’t have to do so much work every year?
We’ll let someone else cover all that. In this session, we’ll have a lot of pictures of baby animals instead. Just kidding. ...or are we?
AN INSIDER’S LOOK AT APU
Sal Soghoian, US.
The growth is explosive. Organizations in all fields and industries are integrating mobile devices as mission-critical appliances, deployed to staff and clients. Find out how the Apple Provisioning Utility (APU) delivers robust onsite management of mobile devices using a simple plug-and-go process. Examine the practical aspects of incorporating a shared-use device strategy.
Learn how to use and customize APU to address a wide variety of deployment scenarios: from business, education and professional services, to healthcare and retail team support.

AutoPkg is a very popular tool for the automation of software updates for your Mac fleet. Originally created as a way to automate imports of new and updated software into Munki, it has been extended to work with Jamf Pro, Filewave, and other software deployment solutions.
With its explosion in popularity came many challenges. AutoPkg in 2019 and 2020 has many changes and improvements from the versions of AutoPkg presented at MacSysAdmin in 2013 and 2014. It also has additional challenges to staying useful for the future.
Greg will cover some of the important changes in AutoPkg over the past five years, and present some of the current and future challenges for this popular Mac admin tool.

THIS IS A DIFFERENT VIEW ON THE TOPIC
Jesse Endahl, US.
One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections.
The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. "What's happened to me? " he thought. It wasn't a dream. His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls. A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table - Samsa was a travelling salesman - and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed.
ACCELERATE YOUR ENROLLMENT TESTING
Kevin M White, US.
When your users experience a properly configured macOS system courtesy of automatic device enrollment (formerly DEP), it can feel like magic! However, every good magician knows it takes a lot of planning, testing, and refining to make a magic trick work smoothly every time. Repeated testing of your automatic enrollment workflows is necessary both during your initial rollout and as software changes and updates throughout your deployment lifecycle.
In this session you will learn methods to iterate your automatic enrollment testing as quickly as possible. Techniques covered in this session include testing automatic enrollment for both virtual and real macOS computers.
