On December 8, 2014 my friend Simon May and I recorded (while presenting live) a Microsoft Virtual Academy “Jumpstart” session all about how to manage iOS and Android devices with Microsoft solutions.  We divided the topic up into 4 modules, to introduce the topic and the fundamentals, as well as to cover iOS and Android device management in greater depth.  We covered how Microsoft products and solutions such as Windows Server, Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Intune and System Center Configuration Manager can be used to grant secured, managed access to corporate resources for those users who “BYOD”; their iPhones, iPads, or Android devices.  Here is the landing page: http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/training-courses/taming-android-and-ios-with-enterprise-mobility-suite “Kevin, did you have a cold?” Ugh..

And Now for a Little Shameless Bragging…

Good morning, all.  I interrupt the normal cadence of this blog to bring to you just a little bit of bragging.  And a challenge. “Oh great.. what did you do now, Kevin?” This week I’m in Seattle, Washington, attending Microsoft’s bi-annual internal technical training event, “TechReady” (TechReady 14 to be specific.)  One of the benefits of being a Microsoft employee is that we can take certification exams for no cost.  And at these events, Microsoft brings in Prometric to facilitate a testing center for people attending the conference.  So this year as in years past, my teammates...
