Everyone's talking about moving to the cloud. But in order to manage a cloud environment you have to rethink everything. Microsoft has the tools to do this with Enterprise Mobility and Security (EMS).
Maybe you listened to Brad Anderson talking about the importance of creating an environment that is "loved by users and trusted by IT" in his keynote at Ignite 2017. You may have even seen his comprehensive video and blog on EMS. But you still have questions.
Or maybe you have simply enjoyed watching episodes of "Brad Anderson's Lunch Break" especially this one from Ignite 2017. (Keep an eye out, you may see one or two ConfigMan community members that you follow talking to Brad in this video). Many of the Microsoft products and teams that we interact with at Microsoft fall under Brad Anderson's management umbrella, including Configuration Manager.
For this reason we are truly honored to have Brad Anderson via Skype at our February 2018 MNSCUG meeting to discuss and answer your questions about Enterprise Mobility and Security (EMS). Like MMS, we're allowing for a ton of Q&A!
Corporate Vice President of Enterprise Cloud and Mobility
