  • -No database changes required to support this activity
  • The iPads will be managed using Symantec Mobile Management Solution 7.1 (MMS), which is a component that plugs into the Altiris 7.1 infrastructure we already use to manage desktops and laptops. MMS allows us to see what programs are installed on the devices, as well as deploy new programs to the device with minimal time expended. We can also perform security functions such as remotely wiping data if we need to.

    13. 13. Lessons Learned• Many QR code apps use internal browsers that did not properly render our site• There are many situations you should review a URL before allowing it to be launched, but we skipped this step• Leveraging third-party tools/apps saved us lots of time and money, but leaves you dependent on them• Photo integration was the most complicated part; iOS 6 should alleviate some of this
