Patch Management and IT Automation allow you to create and schedule Daily, Weekly, and Monthly periodic maintenance tasks. Each Patch Management & IT Automation profile is made up of one or more Tasks.
Maintenance Tasks can be scheduled for Servers and Workstations. An example of a task is Install Java Update. Due to the differences in Windows and Mac architecture, some tasks cannot be automated on Mac devices.
