One of the best things you can do to boost productivity and save yourself time is automate tasks. (For example, we love moving workflows into Slack.)

It’s a pretty awesome thing to do.

Most Mac Admins use a device management tool – be it agentless (ie MDM which arguably has a first party agent) or one that uses an agent to provide more capabilities than the MDM protocol does on its own. Recently, we’ve seen a number of attacks that target systems used to keep computers updated and matching security requirements. Today’s episode explores a recent article in Wired about the potential behind supply chain attacks on the Jamf platform – with about the best people you could be having talk about it, people from Jamf!

Sometimes compliance seems like a bunch of checkboxes. And it can be. But in today’s episode we’re going to spend some time looking at what all those checkboxes mean, where they came from, and how we as admins might be impacted when our organization starts the process of acting like a grown up.

We can see a light at the end of the tunnel. We’re going back into the office. But, what does that really mean now? There’s a new normal coming and the more deliberate we are about what it is, the more we’ll be ready for it. So what broke? What worked great? What’s missing? What technical changes are two forward in need of one step back? What happens to business travel? We’ll ponder all of this and more in this episode!

Apple released the Apple Network Server in 1996. Nearly a decade after having thrown down the gauntlet with IBM in the personal computer ads, such as the now infamous 1984 ad, Apple and IBM were nice and cozy and Apple had taken a number of lumps in the market. Since the desktop operating system wasn’t made with the type of threading required for increasingly large centralized workloads, they partnered with IBM to get AIX running on a Network Server 500. Must have been quite the shiner.

Patch management is one of the most time consuming aspects of any admin. There have been a number of projects that have sought to make this easier for admins. Some of the earliest tools we used to admin devices such as Filewave’s File Sets were replaced with the package format at many a shop when we moved to PackageMaker and the early Casper Suite. But those meant each organization needed to do the same work on the 10 to 1,000 software titles. Then tools like AutoPkg, Jamf Patch, and Kinobi came where the community could share recipes for making packages automatically. This is mostly for software that isn’t yet on the App Store. These days we see a lot of hybrid approaches. AutoPkg with Autopkgr going to munki or Jamf through JamJar or Kinobi picking up a feed. We’ve had people from each of those tools on in the past, so today we have Ryan from Alectrona here to talk about what he’s been doing in this space!
