Meraki Systems Manager
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Meraki Systems Manager is Cisco Systems' Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution that allows you to manage all of your iOS devices from a central web dashboard. Installing this app on an iOS device provides enhanced MDM and MAM functionality that includes features such as a managed app store, content delivery with backpack, and GPS location reporting.
Note: continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 2.3.0
- better support for iBooks files in backpack
MDM is Great
I am not sure if I am using the dashboard to its fullest extent but have questions that I can't seem to find answers to.
My main concern from the device itself and with restrictions enabled the end user can still go into Settings/General/Device Management and remove Meraki Management from the device. It won't uninstall it and I will receive an email informing me that the profile has been removed. I just feel like it shouldn't allow it to even happen.
I'm probably just not understanding this as it is all still new to me and I'm trying to figure it out as we go. I've loaded 17 devices which is about half. I just need someone with more knowledge to help me out a little bit.
Otherwise, it's been working pretty good. Sometimes I find the location is wrong by a few states. I'm in Columbus, Oh and sometimes it shows devices in Youngstown, Oh or in Chicago, Ill. Which I can guarantee they aren't there when I have them here. From the dashboard I click on Refresh Location but it never seems to do anything.
Does what it's supposed to
The other review here make me laugh. This app is doing exactly what it's supposed to. This is a Mobile Device Management app that syncs with a server that is managed my a company (or school's) management platform for managing mobile devices. It manages restrictions and tracks the device's location so that it can be recovered if lost, or wiped if stolen. If you hate this app, you're probably doing something you're not supposed to on a device that doesn't belong to you.
Kids hate, Schools love
Manages your easily walk-off-the-campus iPads. Kids hate it because they can’t screw around on the school’s hardware using apps that you do not allow, nor can they find a way to get around it.
Gotta give it to the kids that take the time to visit the app store in order to skew the star rating. Funny.
