Absolute Manage replaced Filewave in our company. We won a lot of functionality and stability, it is very easy to track a user workstation and keep it updated. This is the only tool offering so many features for Mac OS X, Windows and mobile phones.

We preferred AbMan in Casper because we needed a real solution for Mac and Windows.

Absolute Manage is the only true cross platform management tool. Nothing is sacrificed for either platform. I can manage systems as easily off network as I can on my network.

Since two years this is my tool of choice for managing the Mac-part of a huge University environment. Absolute Manage is a robust solution that has a lot of features hidden in a fairly complex, but still quite usable UI. For my taste the developers focus a bit too much on Mobile-Device-Support in the latest releases, but for managing and deploying a lot of Macs at once I can't think of something better.

The OS-patches are already automatically shown in the UI, you'll only have to assign them to groups and so it won't be necessary to repackage them yourself. Also, there are a lot of built-in information items you can get from every single machine and tasks you can perform with them. You'll will be able to control and manage your Mac-environment with ease.

This software is also capable of managing Windows machines in a basic way, but I'm not currently using this or the Mobile Device Management Modules.

At this point I can say that if you manage computers, you should really give a good look to this product. It does things that no other program does like re-imaging a live system. While there are a few too many windows, it still seems to be improving rapidly, integrates with SMS reporting, actually has it's own reporting if you can't stand SMS's and has very friendly support. While we haven't bought it, there is a good chance in the not too distant future.

Symantec's AutoProtect does seem to slow things down dramatically while transferring large amounts of data, but it tries to suck the life out of everything anyway.
