The MDM server plays a crucial role during device configuration, deployment, and content management. Apple has created an MDM protocol (a Device Management API) that allows MDM vendors to create a complex MDM server that can communicate with Apple devices, change settings, or access and move data. When IT administrators want to issue a command for company-wide devices using their MDM, the MDM server allows those commands to be executed.
