This course is intended for IT professionals who have experience with mobile devices and some version of Windows client and server operating systems. Previous experience with management tools such as Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager would also be valuable but is not required.
In the past organizations either provided laptops or smart phones approved by the IT department and or allowed users to connect from their Windows based computers using options such as VPNs or Remote Desktop Gateways. These options still exist and remain common. However, the incredible growth of mobile devices from various vendors creates a need for managing access to data and applications from these devices. Organizations must determine the best methods for doing so in a secure manner.

Understand the basics of mobile device management.
Gain a high level overview of Microsoft Mobile Device Management tools.
Every organization has unique needs for connecting mobile devices to the corporate network to increase user productivity. Based on the principle of People-centric IT (PCIT) a mobile device strategy can be created to meet those needs. Once the strategy has been determined then its time to created the infrastructure.
Planning for a Mobile Device Management Strategy
Designing a Mobile Device Management Infrastructure with Windows Server 2012 R2
Create the Mobile Device Management Infrastructure
Prepare Active Directory
Prepare the Certification Authority
Prepare Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)
Create a mobile device management (MDM) strategy.
Design a mobile device management infrastructure based on Windows Server 2012 R2 technologies.
Allowing device connectivity is important, but more important is managing that connectivity. Workplace Join allows a way to track and control which devices can connect. Once connected users will need access to data, no matter the device. That data must be current and consistent without users manually copying files. Work Folders creates this ability.
Workplace Join for Mobile Devices
Workplace Join Windows and iOS Devices
Prepare the Workplace Join Infrastructure
Workplace Join an iOS Device
Workplace Join a Windows Device
Create the Work Folders Infrastructure
Install Work Folders on Devices
Set up the requirements for Workplace Join.
Workplace Join devices to Active Directory.
Create the Work Folders infrastructure.
Test Work Folders on devices.
Resolve common application compatibility issues.
In the previous module we learned how to connect non-domain devices to Active Directory for management and policies with Workplace Join. In addition we showed how to synchronize data between multiple devices using Work Folders. However almost always data will be used in some type of application, therefore a part of our MDM (Mobile Device Management) strategy must include accessing those applications from devices. This is the responsibility of Web Application Proxy.

In this module we will discover the process of managing mobile devices throughout their lifecycles. Technologies including the Microsoft Exchange Connector, System Center Configuration Manager and Windows InTune can be used for these purposes. We will also see how applications can be managed for mobile devices.
