Hello ,

I work in healthcare and we have all Windows devices on a domain environment.  With new electronical needs to capture data with patients in rooms the ipads have been looked at extensively.  If we are to move on iOS devices such as ipads or iphones is there a application or software that can centrally manage these devices for upgrades or security policies like our AD does for our Windows PC?

I just finished doing a POC of or first MDM using GOOD. This was tested for email and lock down on BYOD without interfering with user' s personal stuff. I did not test push updates and other function.   I have found this article that might help you.

What you're looking for is Mobile Device Management (MDM) software.
There are a number of software providers open to you. To name a few;
GOOD
VMWare Air-Watch
Citrix XenMobile (XDM)
Cisco Meraki

Both Cisco and VMware bought existing companies in order to add the technology to their product portfolio. I think Citrix may have done the same but I don't know the original products name.
