Introduction


Your company has made the decision to use Apple devices to enhance your business experience. You’ve been using a mobile device management (MDM) solution to ease the deployment, but it has since made you realize that the software is a little bit overpriced and may not be the best one out there. Plus, their support team takes days to get back to you about troubleshooting, which slows down your progress and can, in turn, affect employee productivity.

But that’s all in the past, because the good news is that you’ve found a more cost-effective, faster, and easier-to-use MDM solution for your business and have decided to make the transition! You probably still have questions on how to get started switching from your old solution to your new one, and want to make sure that the process is as smooth as can be. We’re here to help with that!

In this MDM Migration Guide, we’ll provide you with the most important information and steps to help you migrate from your current MDM solution to your new solution.

If you’re new to MDM, we recommend that you check out our article about what MDM can do for your business before you start this guide, so you can learn a little bit more about what a mobile device management solution is and why it’s so important for businesses to deploy their Apple devices using MDM.

Now, let’s go over what you’ll learn by reading this guide. Each chapter covers a major step of the MDM migration process to help you have a successful migration journey. Here are the key points:

  • Prepare Network Infrastructure;
  • Document workflows for creating the migration plan;
  • Export assets and store data from devices;
  • Un-enroll devices from the current MDM;
  • Set up the new MDM solution;
  • Re-enroll and assign devices.
