Sponsor: Bushel Device Management Made Simple for Anyone

2:07 PM, May. 8th, 2015 · · Weekly Sponsorship

I'm thrilled to have Bushel on board as our sponsor here this week at TMO. Bushel is, quite simply, device management for non-IT people. Certainly IT people will see value, too, but the folks at JAMF designed Bushel so you don't have to be in IT to enjoy using this. In their words, Bushel was created for those for whom IT is a task and not a career. And JAMF's history at creating some of the very best managment suites shows that they're quite capable of doing the heavy-lifting so you don't have to worry about it.

It's my pleasure to thank Lucidchart for sponsoring TMO this week. Lucidchart is, in short, Visio for Mac users. In your browser. No separate app to download, but it sure does feel like a Mac app. Digging deeper, Lucidchart features a robust shape library with many templates including flowcharts, floor plans, business analysis, network infrastructure, and more. Additionally, Lucidchart can import and export Visio files, allowing Mac users to easily work on files with Visio for Windows users. Read more for how to get started for free.
