Tethered Management of iOS Devices
Sal Soghoian, macosxautomation.com
When it comes to managing iOS devices, reliance on over-the-air wireless MDM systems is not always practical nor desirable. Because of network limitations and security concerns, many organizations (both large and small) prefer to setup, manage, and restore their iPads and iPhones through direct tethering to macOS systems. Sal provides the tools and instruction for implementing automated “Manage-on-Attachment” workflows using Apple Configurator and Automator. Help for your “Accidental Administrators” is finally here!

Exhibitor session: Moreware
Jorgen Olsson - Moreware
Today, the vast majority of organizations 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 organization, 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.
19.00 - 23.00
Chalk It Up at Biljardpalatset, Ekelundsgatan 9-11.

10.00 - 10.30
Welcome from the Chief.
10.30 - 11.25
During the last year we have seen new Macs that use extra hardware for enhanced security and better performance. This session will give an overview of what we have and where we are going.
11.35 - 12.30
Migrating Away From macOS Server Services
So macOS Server is refocusing around device management. This is an irreversible decision. So OMGOMGOMG what do you do now? Doing nothing is not an option. So what are the options?
In this session, we’ll look at some replacement services, and then how you might go about migrating from macOS Server to the new services in a programmatic fashion where possible, and where you might just be recreating services and doing the old cut/copy/paste where the investment to automate migrations doesn’t warrant the cost to migrate. So no freaking out. Everything is gonna’ be fine. And ultimately probably provide better results..
13.30 - 14.00
Exhibitor session: VMware
