It's sad. I've used VMware as our primary admin for 6 years now and they were a great company to get support from. Airwatch is just confusing and so painful. It's just utter chaos.

Airwatch is a great tool, but man the bureaucracy around the quotes and installs etc, is just the most brutal thing I've ever been through, and I took business accounting and taxation in college. it takes 4-6 weeks to set it all up right! Who has a month and a half to have something they paid for working?We have a very large contract with Dell, I leveraged that connection to get Vmware\Airwatch to reply as they are all really the same company.

The team I managed was tasked with implementing an MDM solution. After a lot of back and forth about a year ago, upper management forced our hand to decide on AirWatch. They promised us the world, we purchased their super awesome $20k deployment team package after paying the 6 digit price tag for licensing, bla bla bla... all the bells and whistles. Let me tell you it was the most terrible deployment team I've ever had to deal with. From the sale to the implementation and deployment of the product it was one false promise after another from vmware. There are a lot of caveats depending on the situation and requirements your company needs or desires.The thought of replacing SCCM with AirWatch just about killed me from laughter. They are two totally different products, AirWatch needs to stop dreaming. Long story short and a year later we are looking at standing up Intune and I can not wait to get it all working the exact way we want, so we can tell AirWatch / VMware to jump off a cliff.

Airwatch is not going to replace sccm for windows management in this or the next version. Its awesome for DEP/ios stuff though that automatic enrollment DEP sign in w/ ad credentials is a thing of beauty.
