Enabling Enterprise Mobility with Windows Intune, Microsoft Azure, and Windows Server

Presenter : Andrew Conway : Senior Director Product Marketing

People want to choose their own devices and be productive in a way that best suits them. IT is responsible for managing corporate assets and resources. Once users are working on mobile devices across the various platforms of Windows, iOS, and Android (i.e., BYOD not joined to a domain) IT needs a way to manage all personal and corporate devices, enforce corporate data protection and have a way to securely publish access to these resources with strong authentication, such as conditional claims-based access and multi-factor authentication. Microsoft provides a unified management environment for all these platforms, a rich desktop virtualization experience for Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android, information protection, and a hybrid identity for users across existing on-premises investments and connected to new cloud services in Microsoft Azure Active Directory. We call this approach People-centric IT (PCIT). In this session, we cover the scenarios we deliver in PCIT through Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, Windows Intune, Windows Server, and Azure Active Directory, and showcase with demos how they come together in real-world implementations so customers can have productive users working on the device and platform of their choice.

Deploying and Managing Enterprise Apps on Windows and Windows Phone

Presenters : Michael Niehaus and Matthijs Hoekstra

Learn how companies can publish their line-of-business apps for deployment to Windows and Windows Phone, and then manage the lifecycles of those apps.

This session provides overviews of each platform as well as what’s new for 8.1, including policy allowing only certain apps to run on Windows Phone, the ability to remotely install and uninstall apps from a Windows Phone, changes to sideloading and sideloaded apps in Windows 8.1, and more.  Also, see how MDM vendors such as Windows Intune choose to abstract many of the differences and service both platforms in a unified way.
