Managing Windows 10, iOS and Android using Configuration Manager and Microsoft Enterprise Mobility +Security suite.

This is the one session you do not want to miss if you are planning to manage mobile devices and Windows 10. The session will explain best practices from numerous MDM projects with a high focus on getting the services implemented correctly first time. Learn how to secure and manage Android, iOS and Windows 10 while having a little bit of fun at the same time.


We will also take a sneak-peak of new features in ConfigMgr and the Enterprise Mobility +Security suite – after all, Christmas is just around the corner.



A special thanks to Heat Software for providing food and beverages!  We love our sponsors!  Please check them out.


Our next meeting is going to be November 16th and it is going to be outstanding.  Finally, the much anticipated all day enterprise monitoring meeting is here! Please register in advance.  There will be coffee and donuts starting at 8:30 and the action starts at 9:00. There will be a heavy focus on Operational Management Suite (OMS) and System Center Operations Manager (SCOM).  We are fortunate to welcome some really great speakers. A line up of this caliber is hard to match outside of an event like MMS.  Coincidently early bird registration is currently open, so we are going to call this day a Taste of MMS.


Bob Cornelissen (SCOM Bob), Cameron Fuller, Dieter Wjickmans and Tao Yang will all be presenting.  This is a line-up of veteran MVPs and monitoring rock stars and we are fortunate to get them all on the same day.  Bob and Cameron will each present two sessions and Dieter and Tao will each do one remotely.  The session topics will be published shortly.  Come prepared with any questions you may have because there will be an experts Q and A session at the end. 


This month, we welcome back long time sponsor Catapult Systems as our silver sponsor!  Be sure to express thanks to them for providing food and drink. 



There will be some truly stellar giveaways as well.  One lucky person may get more than just a taste of MMS.


Next month: A Taste of MMS – all day OpsMgr

Notes from Max's presentation:

Permanent SCCM Administrator Opportunity

I am working on for my client here in Downtown Minneapolis. Do you by chance know of any folks in your network who would be open to hearing about this position with [redacted]? We are working direct with the hiring manager and he is looking to interview immediately. I can be reached directly at 612-216-8438. The key to this opportunity is experience using SCCM in a large corporate environment deploying software vendor security updates/patching servers. This role is more on the server side as opposed to the desktop side.

Warm Regards, Chris Massey Randstad Technologies
