50 Mac users, IT Mgr wants them all to standardize on the version IT says they should have.
Is there any way to implement this?
If you have enterprise licenses then you can create a managed package restricting the end-users to update the apps and use Remote Update Manager to push the updates as per your policies.
Note: remote update manager will update the app, not upgrade.
You can also use AUSST in your environment.
It's worth noting that some forced updates may make collaboration impossible. Especially, InDesign, once worked on a file, the older version can no longer open it. It might be best to check with the end users before enforcing this, as you may find it impossible to do the damage.
