Every organization has a set of norms they follow. Within those are processes that people go through routinely - and those aren’t often documented at new organizations (be they orgs within other orgs or new companies). There have been systems like Six Sigma for tracking those processes, but like how neurons know what paths to take - those are only one part of the brain. EOS is one of those business operating systems, like the OS of the brain, that is more comprehensive than just processes, but goes far deeper into an org. Today we’re speaking with Lucas Acosta from Foojee about EOS and how that has helped Foojee

Lingon has been a part of the MacAdmins toolkit for as long as recent memory caused us to make launch items. Sandkorn became useful around the same time that we had to start looking at application sandboxes. In today’s episode, we interview the person behind these: Peter Borg

MacAdmins have to manage all kinds of things. We talk a lot about settings and features when it comes to device management. But fonts are one of those things that can be important and in fact a security issue as well. For example, if a drug company uses the wrong font they could face massive penalties from regulators. Employees might send out materials with unlicensed fonts. In today’s episode we’ll talk about what’s involved in font management: how to get the right fonts on the right devices and build sustainable workflows so teams can have access to such an important aspect of computing.

The world of open source MDMs continues to evolve. We’ve had guests on to talk about open source mdm tools in the past but this is one of those episode topics that should come back up routinely. Especially when we see larger scale operations. Today we’ll talk about how NanoMDM could be  used to build a dynamic and flexible event-based mdm platform. This type of system is broadly useful to multiple different types of orgs and can have great security benefits.
