    Lightbulb AirWatch

    Hi everyone, we are currently thinking about a management solution for mobile devices and one of our suppliers have recommended this.
    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with them? If so what do you think?

    Currently trialing it, and it seems pretty comprehensive! Thinking about using it for our Android tablet 1-1 scheme next year.

    Been using it for around 6 months now and it's much more stable than the previous solution we used. The reporting functionality is particularly nice as is the ability to redeploy individual apps and profiles to single users.

    The account management and support teams are also pretty switched on and the account managers are very proactive with chasing up any problems or questions that you may have.

    @Aethon - From the website it seams to imply that it integrates with Active Directory, does that mean that we can use staff and pupil logons to access Android & Apple devices. If so how do they do that?

    It means you could enrol staff and student devices using your AD credentials. You could also assign them to locations (folders) based on their AD groups so that, for example, your staff will have access to different apps than your students or some people get more stringent password requirements than others.

    These credentials could also be used to automatically connect the user to their email or the wireless, if you are using a RADIUS server for authentication.

    Have you considered MobileIron?

    We tried them against a number of technologies and found they had a great integration with our existing infrastructure and were easy to deploy.

    There is an install/setup cost. Onsite is about £1500 and hosted is £3000, that's a one off cost.

    Then there is a per year per device fee. On site is about £6 and hosted is £12.

    Hope that helps

    Went to their offices for a demo yesterday and I was impressed with what I saw of it. Especially the ability to have a bookable set that can have a different set of apps deployed based on the lesson they are booked for all done on the fly and in less time than it takes to boot and log into a laptop.
