Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Workshops

people-centric-it

In the UK subsidiary Microsoft will be running a series of Enterprise Mobility Workshops.

The Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Workshops are ½ day and delivered jointly with our one of our strategic partners at regional locations across the UK. These workshops are designed to help you understand how Microsoft can keep your users productive, help with data protection & compliance, and unify your environment to drive efficiency – introducing enterprise mobility solutions & technologies from Microsoft.

Nobody said being in IT was easy. And now they have to deal with the increased use of mobile devices, a proliferation of apps, and users’ expectations to access company data from virtually anywhere. IT needs a reliable, complete and efficient solution that takes a people-centric approach to the management of users, their devices and the protection of corporate data. Microsoft has solutions to help organisations harness the power of enterprise mobility, without unnecessary risk or complexity.

For more information, please visit: http://aka.ms/PCIT.

How can IT provide a consistent and personalised experience for users across a wide range of devices? How does IT help to keep corporate information protected? How are these two requirements achieved without adding unrealistic cost and complexity to the business? Microsoft has solutions to enable enterprise mobility:

  • Hybrid Identity Management
  • Mobile Device Management
  • Access and Information Protection
  • Desktop Virtualization

Microsoft recently announced the Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), which is the comprehensive cloud solution to address your consumerisation of IT, BYOD, and cloud SaaS challenges. The suite is the most cost effective way to acquire all of the included cloud services: Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium, Windows Intune, and Microsoft Azure Rights Management.
