Mac Deployment in the new world
Lots of changes are coming to the way we deploy our Macs. The TouchBar has its challenges. What will APFS bring to the table? By the time of the conference we will probably have a new version of macOS as well.
We asked Mr. Z back to speak about the Apple way to handle Mac deployment in the future.

Mac@IBM: How IBM successfully deployed Macs and iOS devices across our global enterprise
Fletcher Previn, IBM
This session is designated to be a briefing and and conversation around IBM global deployment of Mac@IBM (Macs and iOS).
We will address and entertain questions.

- PC culture to Mac/PC culture
- How did we measure Mac vs PC?
- Findings and lessons.
What do we actually care about?
We’ve been managing Docks, setting background images, configuring property lists of applications like Microsoft Office, and scripting various aspects of the user experience for years.
But the world is changing and as it changes, a new balance is coming. The equilibrium will be between what we’re allowed to configure, what actually makes our jobs easier, and what tools we’re able to use to achieve those goals. When we send an app to an iOS device, we don’t need to configure settings for the app. But we need to for some Mac apps. Or do we?
In this talk, we’ll go through every single manifest for what we can and can’t set. No, we won’t. But we will look at guidelines around what we should or shouldn’t care about in the future.
