There are many tools used to manage Mac computers on campus; this talk will focus on one solution: Parallels Mac Management (PMM) for Systems Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
SCCM has been used by various IT support groups across campus to manage Windows computers since 2013. After initial testing by AHS and Environment in 2016, PMM was incorporated into SCCM to extend management capabilities to Macs. This session will provide some insights into how PMM is being used in AHS and Environment.
In May, several IT support staff from campus attended the Ontario Higher Education Information Technology (OHEIT) conference in Sudbury.
The conference took place at Laurentian University and the theme was The Digital Campus – Work, learn, live and play.
A sequel to the Duo Two-factor Authentication seminar presented in February. This talk will provide more detailed information about how Duo works, what authentication options it supports, and options for integrating Duo with other applications. A brief update on the Duo roll out will also be included.
