Updated: July 1, 2014
People want to work from anywhere, on whatever device they choose—laptop, smartphone, tablet, or PC. IT departments want to help them do that and still protect corporate data. It’s a BYOD world, and Microsoft has developed several solutions to help you to meet the mobile device management (MDM) challenge.
How can this guide help you?
This design considerations guide helps you to understand mobile device management design requirements and covers a series of steps and tasks for you to design a MDM solution that best fits the business and technology needs for your organization.
This solution helps you manage mobile devices by extending your on-premises System Center 2012 Configuration Manager infrastructure into the cloud with Windows Intune. This hybrid infrastructure helps IT Pros in medium and large environments enable BYOD and remote access while reducing administrative complexity.
This solution helps you manage mobile devices when your infrastructure rests on a System Center Configuration Manager 2007. This solution shows you how to set up a single server running System Center 2012 Configuration Manager so you can then run Windows Intune and take advantage of its MDM ability.
This solution is intended for small businesses that need to support MDM. It explains how to use Windows Intune to extend your current infrastructure to support mobile device management and BYOD. This solution describes the simplest scenario supported for using Windows Intune in a stand-alone, cloud-only configuration with no local servers.
