Information on macOS endpoint management using a combination of Workspace ONE and Munki.
Munki Mac Endpoint Management
Workspace ONE Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)
University of Illinois IT Pros leveraging Technology Services Endpoint Service Munki Mac Endpoint Management and Workspace ONE UEM
Munki and Workspace ONE (formerly known as AirWatch) complement one another and together provide a full suite of macOS endpoint management tools. NOTE: Neither Munki nor Workspace ONE provides traditional OS imaging, which Apple no longer supports.

An ideal macOS deployment workflow therefore utilizes both Workspace ONE and Munki in the following way:
